One thing about Africans, they are extra. They love extravagant because that is how they celebrate and express themselves.

This past weekend, African A-listers gathered at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos to witness the 8th Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).

The AMVCA celebrate African stars doing exceptionally well in their respective careers within the entertainment industry.

They turned up the heat and dressed to the nines for the special occasion.

South Africa’s it girl Bonang Matheba, who was the host, changed into four different outfits and they all looked amazing. However, our favourite was the blue gown by House of Dova.

Former “Big Brother Naija” star Tacha Akide looked ravishing in a custom Xtra Brides Lagos gown with glittery embroidery.

Someone pointed out that Nigerian girls wear the same dress reincarnated and we cannot unsee it. We already know that when there’s a red carpet event, the girls will show up wearing hourglass sheer dresses with sew-in hips.

But social media strategist Nonye Udeogu came up with something different. She wore a Mofari pink princess dress with micro pleats.

Producer and TV host Nancy.E.Isime rocked a sheer white dress with beaded embroidery by Valdrin Sahiti.

Nigerian gents sure know how to dress and South African men can learn a thing or two.

Actor and fashion consultant Dénola Grey ate and left no crumbs. He looked dapper in a custom Atafo suit and he sure did deserve the best dressed award that he won.
