Speaking at the launch, former Miss Uganda Stellah Nantumbwe who also doubles as the Vice President of the AMI awards instilled hope in fans of African music saying, “These are people’s choice awards, expect the utmost transparency. ”The entire voting process is up on our website, expect no surprises as far as winners are concerned, you’ll be able to see everything.”
We further understands that the event is designed to “honor African artists and musicians, African arts and cultures, entertainment leaders, entertainment political figures, dignitaries, celebrities and stars who are pioneers in arts, music, fashion.” The awards gala will be held at Kampala Serena Hotel on 24th March 2018, with a horde of African celebrities expected to attend.
