Minne Dlamini returns as AMVCA host alongside IK

Earlier today, media personality, Minnie Dlamini confirmed that she will be returning to Lagos to host the 2017 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards alongside Nigerian presenter IK Osakioduwa.

IK has been hosting the awards for years and was only recently joined by Minnie who co-hosted the awards for the first time last year

She even flew to Victoria Island in Nigeria last year to shoot some stunning magazine covers as part of her promotional tour in the lead up to the awards ceremony.

She was very excited about doing it the first time around. 

“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” she said.

"With more than enough industry credential, charm, wit and looks there is no doubt that Minnie Dlamini and IK Osakioduwa will create magic as hosts of the AMVCA 2017," said Africa Magic via their website.

As we speak, she currently flying to Lagos to fulfill her host duties for the 5th edition of the annual ceremony which will be taking place this weekend. 

She stunned in two Gert-Johan Coetzee numbers last year (one white, one gold), as well as a white Tuelo Nguyuza design but were more curious about who will be dressing her this year. 

Minne is not the only reason to watch the ceremony as there are also a number of South Africans on the nominee list.
