A crop of South African actors took over the 2016 African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) on Saturday night in Nigeria.

Held in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, our local movies stars including real-life couple and Tell Me Sweet Something stars Nomzamo Mbatha and Maps Maponyane were in attendance. The duo was nominated on the night for their leading roles in the Akin Omotoso-directed film.
Ayanda screen siren Fulu Moguvhani as well as co-stars Nthati Moshesh and Thomas Gumede all walked the red carpet. Sporting a crimson Scalo Designer number, Moguvhani came out triumphant after scooping the award for Best Actress in a Leading Role – Mbatha was nominated in the same category – while Moshesh and Gumede lost out in their respective categories.
“Oh... It's just me with my AFRICA MOVIE ACADEMY AWARD! I'm so honoured and grateful for this, words cannot begin to explain it,” Moguvhani wrote on Instagram after her win.
Here Me Move actor Nyaniso Dzedze, who was nominated for Best Young/Promising Actor, was also in attendance in his creamy Xhosa traditional layers.
Though not in attendance, starlet Thishiwe Ziqubu won the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in Tell me Sweet Something. She was nominated in the same category as Moshesh.
Tell Me Sweet Something also won the award for Achievement in Screenplay, while Here Me Move was awarded for Achievement in Editing.
