No doubt, there is never a shortage of high octane glamour each year on the AMVCA red carpet. Unlike other awards shows or movie premieres, Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards is a major moment each year because the event celebrates creativity in Television and Film – which is one of Africa’s biggest industries.

Among a plethora of designer gowns and bespoke suits, we see on the red carpet each year a number of celebrities who earn themselves a place in African fashion history and on our exclusive Best Dressed List. Some of the greatest hits — Toni Tonescinderella-esque appearance, Rita Dominics TUBO gown, Adesua Etomi Wellington as a flower princess in ATAFO — rank among the best styles to ever be seen on the AMVCA red carpet. With less than 24 hours to #AMVCA8, we look back on some of the most memorable looks from 2013 to date.

Which A-listers are we looking forward to seeing on the red carpet? What head-turning look will Toke Makinwa wear for her second AMVCA hosting gig? Will Toni Tones slay the red carpet with a floor-length dress like she did in 2018 or go for a show-stopping gown? Which of the male celebrities will own the show? – Yes, as you can tell, we are excited!
