Golden Movie Awards Africa 2018: the good, the bad and full list of winners

Golden Movie Awards Africa 2018: the good, the bad and full list of winnersGolden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA), an annual event that seeks to award excellence in movie making on the African continent and the African diaspora has once again had a successful event at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel where it hosted filmmakers from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda among other countries from the motherland for its 2018 edition.

The awards ceremony hosted by Nigerian comedian AY and actress Joselyn Dumas saw a host of attendees including Nikki Samonas, Nana Ama McBrown, Veteran actor Fred Amugi and Kofi Adjorlolo, Nigerian actress Lilian Esoro, Lydia Forson, Vicky Zugah and Salma Mumin.

While Fiifi Coleman was comfortably seated in his white tuxedo, Jackie Appiah in a while lace was arranged for an award presentation while both Gloria Sarfo and Peter Ritchie won trips to São Tomé island through a citation give to appreciate them for being regular attendees at the Golden Movie Awards since its inception.

Cameroon’s Allene Menget gave an enthralling speech that moved almost the ‘only’ white man in the auditorium to give him a standing ovation while the speech about blacks and freedom for Africa didn’t move most of the audience from Ghana and Nigeria as they were seen seated and unconcerned throughout.

Shirley Frimpong-Manso, Ekow Smith-Asante who also presented two awards were also present to grace the beautiful occassion.

It’s almost a norm in the Ghana these days as most events gaining Africa’s attention seem to come with its own hiccups and the just ended Golden Movie Awards 2018 is not different.

While the highlight for the whole evening was centered around Kobi Rana’s unbeatable performance that took audience from the new school and back to old school movie themes, the worst moment at the ceremony was when the event came at a halt and the DJ turned the movie awards event into a mini club taking patrons through a series of unnecessary music playbacks.[/vc_column_text

Rising socialite Rosemond Brown was also another highlight at the event after presenting an award which she took more than two-minutes to read the transcript given. Quiet a hilarious scene that didn’t seem much a surprise to the audience but then again, one will ask, are these awards to be taken serious? Well… a talk for another day!
