Let's look at who we think would win in major categories (based on their social media campaign), and who we think should win (because they killed their roles and deserve the award).

Don't you sometimes wish the AMVCAs isn't based on popularity, fan base, and who can gather more votes? Don't you just wish there was a jury to decide based on quality?

But then, it's the Africa Magic 'VIEWERS' Choice Awards, so it's all about what the 'viewers' want, and not a case of 'let the best man win.'

I personally think earning a nomination puts every nominee on same status with the winner. You must have been talented enough to earn a nomination, but then again, have you never seen a name on the list and wondered "how did this brother/sister get here?

Anyway, let's look at who we think would win in major categories (based on their social media campaign), and who we think should win (because they killed their roles and deserve the award).

We could be wrong, after all, we all thought "The Revenant" would rule the Oscars night, but "Mad Max: Fury Road" did!
