The eloquent and stylish host of StarGist, Vimbai Muntinhiri says she is excited about hosting the maiden edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards which holds in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday, March 9.
Vimbai, who would be co-hosting the awards with Big Brother Africa resident host IK Osakioduwa, said in a telephone interview that although she is looking forward to seeing the many top African stars on the night, she will be keeping an eye out especially on Ghana’s bad boy, Majid Michel.
“Majid Michel, because he is hot!”, she joked adding … “ but honestly it’s because he is a great actor. I have seen a lot of his work, he exudes great character and I look forward to seeing him”.
On the hosting the event she said: “I’m so excited, it’s really such an honour to be such a big part of such an amazing event. To be part of the first one feels great, really I feel like all my hard work is paying off. This is my first time hosting an award especially of this magnitude, so it’s daunting but also very exciting!”
She also shared her expectation: “I’m expecting a night of glamour but more so, a night of celebration because I guess that’s what we doing. It’s going to be all about fun, I don’t think it’s about winners or nominees that don’t win. It’s about celebrating the fact that the best of African film and television have gathered in one place to celebrate the journey that we have travelled so far. It’s a celebration of all the years of hard work that we haven’t celebrated”
