Bayelsa state was the place to be this weekend as movie professionals from all over Africa and the diaspora gathered for what is arguably the biggest movie award ceremony this side of the world, the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
From Nigeria and South Africa to Malawi, Kenya, Burkina Faso and several other African countries, the stars turned out in their Sunday best for the 2013 AMAA awards ceremony which was tagged ‘Africa One’. On hand to host the show were comedian AY Makun, who had the audience reeling in laughter with his jokes(several of which were aimed at Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme aka Aki and Paw-Paw), British-Ghanaian Actress and TV presenter, Ama K. Abebrese and uber-classy Dakore Egbuson-Akande. Several celebrities including Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Uti Nwachukwu, Alex Ekubo, Doris Simeon and several others were also on hand to present the awards in several categories.
No award ceremony is complete without a musical performance and the 2013 AMAA awards was no different as several artistes including P-Square, Waje, Flavour, Timi Dakolo and Magic  Band from Malawi got the audience rocking at several points of the show. Also worthy of note is the rousing applause Nollywood veteran, Kenneth Okonkwo was given on  his appearance on stage to receive his Pillars of Nollywood award. Okonkwo, who is rarely seen in public gave a heartfelt acceptance speech as he thanked his wife and fans for their love and support.
