Picking his award he said there have been many awards but AMAA has come to stay. It is now an institution. It is not easy organising award shows in Nigeria. Organising 13th edition is no mean feat in these parts. It shows dedication, tenacity and belief against all odds.

The 13th edition was truly a celebration of African film. The organisers were not pressured to awarding all the accolades to Nigerian movies. It wasn't a Nigerian show, it was a true African one which touched based in all parts of the continent. The winners' list reflects that. It was good to see other film makers and actors from other parts of the continent.
