AMAA 2016: Despite the flaws, winners emerged. See the list

Although the 2016 Africa Movie Academy Awards, AMAA, has come and gone, but its will be hard to forget all that transpired on the night of the event. Mix-feelings have been trailing it: many believe that the choice of Port-Harcourt, notorious for insecurity, as the host city signaled the first gaff by the organizers, then the eventual black-out that lasted almost an hour nailed the floppiness of the whole event.

Despite all the flaws, some people were happy and went home with different awards on that night. Some of the stars who smiled home with awards include Daniel K Daniel, Thishiwe Ziqubu, RMD, Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva among other:
