Deyemi Okanlwon and IK Osakioduwa Recreate The Infamous Oscar Slap Moment At The AMVCA 8

What’s the AMVCAs without a few funny moments? In a moment of pure hilarity, actor Deyemi Okanlawon recreated the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock Oscar slap moment with the night’s host, IK Osakioduwa.

The actor, who was a nominee for ‘Best Actor in a Comedy’, recreated the moment when IK was giving one of his famous AMVCA monologues. The host talked about how Deyemi Okanlawon turned to real estate sales during the pandemic when Nollywood was shut down. The latter screamed from his seat in the crowd, “keep my name out of your mouth”, and walked up to the stage.

Some bouncers intercepted him, and IK later joked about how he made sure to have backup before making jokes about someone who could fight karate.

The two men, who planned the entire moment, had everyone in stitches. Termed as ‘the slap that was heard around the world’, it was hilarious to see it recreated at Africa’s most prestigious film and movie award show.

The AMVCAs had several jaw-dropping and emotional moments over its eight-day lineup of festivities, but this will be one of its most memorable. The award ceremony held last night at the Eko Hotels and Suites was the perfect way to round up a week filled with events.

Top Three Idols Emerge As Jordan Exits The Competition

After weeks of impressive performances, Nigerian Idol Season 7 top three contestants finally emerged at last night’s live show.

The show opened with Zadok and Jordan’s electrifying performance of Fireboy DML’s Peru remix with Ed Sheeran. It was followed by Banty and Progress’s duet of Wizkid and Tems’ chart-topping single, Essence. Sadly, the duet with Zadok was Jordan’s last performance in the Nigerian Idol race as the Kaduna-born singer polled the lowest votes and was eliminated after the round of duets.

The top three contestants were required to perform two songs each, one from the year they were born and another from songs made ‘special’ by contestants who didn’t go beyond the live auditions. Opening the stage for the first round of songs was Banty, who performed a cover of BeyoncĂ©’s Listen, to a standing ovation from the audience and judges, and according to Simi, this was Banty’s best performance so far in the competition.

Next up was Zadok, whose rendition of Jennifer Hudson’s And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going blew everyone away. To seal the first round of performances, Progress performed a Whitney Houston classic, I Will Always Love You to the admiration of the judges and his teeming fans.

The night’s competition got fiercer with the next round of songs. Once again, the last girl standing, Banty, took the crowd back in time, with her cover of Brandy’s 1995 hit,  I want to Be Down. Next up, Zadok gave a good account of himself with a thrilling performance of Boyz II Men I’ll Make Love To You, which had the audience swaying in their seats. Progress rounded up the night of outstanding performances with his cover of Westlife’s Swear It Again to another round of standing ovation from everyone.

Undoubtedly, all three contestants brought out their A-game in the night’s performances. The competition continues next week with three contestants vying for the top spot. Who makes it to the ultimate 2 is solely in the hands of the viewers. Don’t forget that Voting is open now and will close at 9 pm on Thursday, 15 May 2022. Viewers can vote via the Africa Magic website, mobile site, and MyDStv and MyGOtv apps.

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 to Headline MTN Bushfire 2022

MTN Bushfire is very excited to announce the headline act for 2022, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80. This high-energy act from Nigeria will join dozens of artists from across Africa and around the world on the various stages from 27 – 29 May 2022.

Rooted in Africa and yet globally inclusive, MTN Bushfire’s line-up has always embraced the eccentric and unearthed the eclectic. Music, dance, spoken word – all forms of creative expression engage and enlighten us with powerful messages and memorable performances. In true MTN Bushfire style, the  line-up this year will feature a wholesome and family-friendly mix of pan-African and international artists from across different genres who do more than simply entertain, but use their art as a powerful form of creative expression.

Headlining act Seun Kuti will be right at home on the MTN Bushfire Main Stage. Kuti is the youngest son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and at the age of 14 years old, assumed the role as leader of the Egypt 80 band. Ever since, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father. Along the way, he began to add his own twist to the music, digging deep into various African traditions to reflect the continent’s struggles and cultures. Egypt 80 is a 14-piece band that performs with a visceral intensity that has wowed audiences all over the world. About three quarters of the current Egypt 80 line-up consists of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but often were arrested and harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement.

As has become the norm at MTN Bushfire, music fans will find an eclectic combination of the names they know and love, as well as newer acts and artists from around Africa and beyond.  Discovering new artists and music styles is one of the highlights of every MTN Bushfire weekend.  More artists will be announced in the weeks to come, but already the MTN Bushfire 2022 line-up promises to exceed expectations.

Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 will headline the MTN Bushfire Main Stage, just one of the stages at MTN Bushfire along with the House on Fire Amphitheatre Stage, and the Ballantine’s Firefly Stage. Beloved Eswatini artist Sands will perform as well as his MTN Bushfire Collab partner The One Who Sings, better known to many as Zolani Mahola of Freshlyground fame.

The world-renowned and celebrated Ndlovu Youth Choir, as well as top South African acts Nasty C, The Kiffness, Blk Jks, Sun-EL Musician, DBN Gogo, and Msaki are just some of the well-known artists to be announced. 

Joining this amazing range of artists from further afield will be Aurus, A visually and sonically compelling act steeped in the unusual combination of Creole and English lyrics from Reunion Island, Blindsmyth from Germany who crosses between deep electronic soundscapes and experimental pop music, Bnnyhunna a Netherlands based multi-disciplinary and visionary artist who has Ghanian roots, and Eritrea-born vocalist Rimon who has built her name on emotive songwriting and a rich vocal style, blending elements of hip-hop, neo-soul, and dancehall.

The following diverse range of acts that hail from across Africa and beyond have also been confirmed for the various stages with a full line-up of additional artists and a full programme to be announced in the coming weeks.
