AY Comedian, Ama K. Abebrese & Dakore Egbuson to Host Ama Awards 2013

As the clock continues to tick towards the 2013 edition of the African Movie Academy Awards holding in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State on April 20, the organisers have unveiled hosts for the event. Two Nigerians, Dakore Egbuson and Ayo Makun,  will join their Ghanaian counterpart, Ama Abebrese for the job, at the edition that marks AMAA’s return to its ‘home’, Bayelsa,  where it was held for years until 2102 when Lagos flirted with it.

For Dakore, it is another home-coming, since she hails from the same oil-rich state as President Goodluck Jonathan. While Ama K. Abebrese  a British television presenter, producer and actress of Akan origin in Ghana, will also be in action, it is AY that is expected to drive the treat, based on his pedigree as a comedian....

According to a statement signed by the Director of Administration of AMAA, Tony Anih,  the host for this year awards were carefully selected to give the guests a new experience and promote the spirit of unity in Africa,  which the awards scheme is said to have been promoting in the last nine years of existence.
