AMVCA 2017: Oloibiri Wins Best Movie (West Africa); See the Rest


Award Winners of 2017 AMVCA.

One can never deny the fact that literature is life as it showcases societal experiences through prose, drama and poetry. At one point, it showcases humorous and hilarious scenes in order to ease our pains by invoking uncontrollable laughter in us; and at another point, it brings to limelight the societal ills in order to correct them. This is achieved through the use of characters (humans like me and you) who perform roles totally different from what they represent in reality in order to pass across the underlying message of the play or movie. It is not really easy you know.
