AMAA Awards 2014: Why The Fallout Of Nollywood?

The African Movie Academy Awards 2014 went down last weekend and it wasn't without its excitement, thrills and low moments.

It was the 10th edition of the ceremony and it was held at the Gabriel Occur Cultural Center, Yenegoa, Bayelsa State.

The glorious moment when movie stars from all African nations walked the red carpet added its own side attraction to the night event.

But the bad moment was that Nollywood should cover its eyes in shame as the movie industry always touted to be the Giant of Africa failed to live up to expectation.

But the likes of Clarion Chukwura, Patience Ozokwo, and Bob Manuel Ndoku left Bayelsa with smiles on their faces.
