After unveiling Hollywood’s star Jimmy Jean Louis as the main host of AMAA 2012 (which caused no small stir), the Award body has chosen to further daze Nigerians and Africans as a whole with the gracing of not one, not two, but ‘Four’ Hollywood stars at the event, billed to hold on the April 22nd 2012 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos.
Morris Chestnut (Boyz n the Hood(91), Two can play that game (2001), confidence (2003), Ladder 49 (2004), Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid(2004), Lynn Whitfield (The Josephine Baker story (91), Step- Mom (98) Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams story (2004), Maya Gilbert ( The hiding, Busted, Subject 15) Rockmond Dunbar (Soul Food (2000), Prison break (2005), The Family that preys (2008) will be at the event. Their names will be stencilled on AMAA’s plates alongside their Hollywood colleagues who have attended previous events such as Danny Glover, Vivica Fox, Monique, Cuba Gooding Jr, Angela Basset, Courtney Vance, Forest Whitaker.
Tu Face and Asa are the heavy weights expected to perform at the event. Lagos State Government and Airtel are major sponsors of this year’s event alongside Arik Air, Lufthansa and the Bayelsa State Government. AMAA is certainly leaving no stone unturned in making this year’s edition the best.
