#AMVCA2020: Reactions as BBNaija’s Mike Edwards and Mercy Eke are crowned best dressed
The 2020 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) which was held at the Eko Hotel on Saturday, March 14th is not just about the movies or television series.
Awards are given for performance in acting, production and but one award is not categorized until the main event which is the best-dressed award.
While people condemned several big-time celebrities for their poor choice of outfit to the award ceremony it is only fair that celebrities who slay the red carpet and event get recognition.
Reigning Big Brother Naija winner Mercy Eke also known as Lambo was voted as the best-dressed female at the AMVCA for a cinderella themed blue dress.
Mike Edwards who was the runner up at the last Big Brother Naija competition was voted as the best-dressed male at the AMVCA for his tuxedo
The organizers of the award announced that Mike and Mercy were the winners with a statement on their official Instagram account which said, “Ok, so this is not the dress that @official_mercyeke wore to win but here she is with @aireyys after they both won the awards for the Best Dressed female and male respectively. 🥇 #AMVCA7
The reactions to Mercy and Mike emerging winner of the prestigious best-dressed categories at the AMVCA brought about mixed reactions as some thought they were underserving while many stated that since it is a voting category it cannot be argued.
Here are the social media reactions to Mercy and Mike winning best dressed

People that wanted Nana and Denola to win, did y’all vote? It’s not Mike and Mercy’s fault that people voted for them. They won, deal with it…. I don’t understand the campaign after election o #AMVCA7

On a second thought, I feel the criteria used by the organizers of the #AMVCA7 for getting the winner of the best dressed is questionable. Those that voted, voted on sentiments rather than the actual sense.
Mike didn't merit it, Mercy also, is questionable.. but let it slide

Mercy dress was the best for the female but I can’t say same about that of mike, denola grey should have easily won the best dress male.#AMVCA2020
