Africa Magic in association with MultiChoice has announced the hosts for the eighth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, set to hold on May 14, 2022, in Lagos. 

The multi-talented Nigerian media personality, IK Osakioduwa, will return to host the award show with South Africa’s media darling, Bonang Matheba, who will be making her hosting debut at the AMVCAs. 

Bonang Matheba is a multi-award-winning radio host, TV presenter, and style icon renowned for her flamboyant presentation skills and her signature voice on South African radio and television.  

She has hosted several award shows and prominent events, including the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards, the pre-shows for the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards and 2016 BET Awards, and Miss South Africa 2019.

Speaking on her AMVCA debut, Bonang expressed her excitement saying, “it’s been a long time coming”. On what viewers should expect to see, Queen B revealed that she will be bringing world-class, quality television hosting to the show. 

“It’s always such an honor to host live productions and I think after COVID, we haven’t had the opportunity to be outside to have these big, big productions with live studio audiences. So, it’s lovely to have all of that back. It’s also an honor. Any single stage I get to step on is an honor. I’ve always wanted to work with IK. I am a huge fan of his. So, I’m looking forward to that too”, she said. 

IK Osakioduwa began his career in 2001 as a radio on-air personality and became popular for his entertaining style of presentation. He has since gone on to host several high-profile shows and programmes such as Big Brother Africa and is the host of the ongoing Nigerian Idol season 7 competition. 

Making his return to the glamorous AMVCA stage, IK said: “I feel really honored to be hosting the AMVCAs again. I’m also really excited about the decision to honor the social media content creators with a category of their own. Trust me when I say, without a doubt this year is going to be another amazing outing for the African film industry”. 

For the eighth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, organizers announced a special eight-day series of events, starting with an Opening Night on Saturday, 7 May.
