Minnie will be presenting the 4th edition of the AMVCAs. Now, we have someone new and fresh from Southern Africa who will be hosting the most prestigious awards come March 5th, 2016. Minnie might be new to a lot of Nigerians but she is referred to as the ‘Diamond girl’ in South Africa.

Regarded as the hottest woman on South African television, Minnie, is an actress, TV presenter, radio DJ, Brand Ambassador, MC and Fashionista. Minnie broke into prominence in 2010 when she beat thousands of hopefuls in the nationwide search for a young and sassy presenter for one of South Africa’s biggest music shows. Within months, Minnie also landed a role as the sassy Miranda on the popular soap Generations, a role which opened her up to a bigger, Pan-African audience.

This year, we are expecting something new and sassy on our TV screens. We cannot predict who she will be wearing but we are sure she will be representing some of South Africa’s biggest designers. We also look forward to Minnie in some Nigerian designers come March 5th, 2016.

Minnie said: “I am very excited to be on the biggest platform for celebrating talent in Africa. The AMVCAs recognise and celebrate film and television talent across Africa, and as a proud African, I am truly delighted to play a role in this celebration.”

On the 5th of March, 2016, Minnie will take the stage alongside IK to present the 4th edition of the AMVCAs to viewers across Africa and the rest of the world. The AMVCAs will be broadcast live on all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv.
