From the winners list to the glitz and glamour, the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award remains the most refreshing.

It's two days to the 2017 AMVCAs, and we are throwing it back to one of the best ever; the 2016 edition.

In 2016, 'newcomers' beat veterans to win awards in various major acting categories. It was almost like an event totally dependent on the decision of a jury and not the viewers.
