VIEW Photos and FULL List of Winners at the 2013 Channel O Africa Music Video Awards #CHOAMVA


Congratulations to all the winners at the recently completed 2013 Channel O Music Video Awards. Nigeria only brought home three awards this year, compared to prior years. Perhaps our music video directors can get inspired to give us more creative works, working in conjunction with our artists.

I do see some AML people at the event as well. Shout out to Zonefam, D-Black, and Sarkodie.

A big shoutout to AML reader Francis Oghuma who is the owner of the company Picharazzi. Francis is determined to change the name and face of the game when it comes to event photography. He captured some photos at the event and is kind to share it with us. He is also currently capturing all the celebrations/ceremony surrounding Nelson Mandela’s death.

Support his work by hiring him for your events. He shuffles between South Africa and Nigeria and also travels to other countries. You can reach him via his Facebook page.
