The Red Carpet was flooded with variations of décolletage with some neck-lines, plunging a lot lower to reveal not so flattering boobs. Some of the outfits appeared ‘over-the-top’ while the majority of gowns were not flattering at all. It’s interesting to notice that some nominees went all out for ‘traditional wear’.
In the end, it was about promoting African movies and rewarding well-deserving persons in the industry. Big Brother’s IK Osakioduwa and StarGist’s Vimbai Muntinhiri kept the event running and audience attentive as the they hosted the awards ceremony.
