According to the movie’s director Tawonga Nkhonjera, B’ella will compete on Best Emerging Actor and Best First Feature Director categories.

“We have learnt with excitement that our movie has been nominated at this year’s AMAA and I(director) have been nominated for best first feature director and actress Vinjeru Kamanga for best emerging actor.”

“B’ella has been warmly accepted by the film making world. The film made rounds in other continents and I’m happy that we are now having chances at African film festivals,” said the jovial Nkhonjera.

Nkhonjera also noted that the nominations were a growing opportunity for new actor Vinjeru Kamanga.

“AMAA is growing into a formidable platform to celebrate African works, foster business in the film world and help develop networks. Filmmakers and actors learn from participating in festivals. Actors gain exposure. It would help develop Vinjeru’s career,” he said.

The 11th event is scheduled to take place in South Africa in September. This is the first time the gala will take place outside Nigeria in AMAA’s 10 years of existence.

The awards founded by Nigerian Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, are aimed at honouring and promoting excellence in the African movie industry as well as uniting the African continent through arts and culture. They are presented annually to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry.
