This year’s AMVCAs proudly refreshed by Pepsi was a three-day event from the 18th of May to the 20th of May, 2023.
Day One: Opening Ceremony/Cultural Night.
The carpets were rolled out and the cameras were flashing as many of Africa’s favourite celebrities and AMVCA nominees graced the occasion in colourful cultural regalia. But the real high point of the night came when Pepsi took the event from ten degrees to a hundred and one degrees with Pepsi DJ Ambassador Crowd Kontroller on deck serving confam gbedu, reloaded, rewired and refreshed by Pepsi. Safe to say some of the celebrities in attendance were close to losing all their home training. That was just the beginning.
Day Two: Pepsi Confam Gbedu meets Pepsi Confam Fashion.
Fashion is always a thing and Pepsi Confam Fashion was the thing at the AMVCA Nominees Gala / Runway show this year. Pepsi set the mission for its runway exhibition with confam Gbedu served by multi-award-winning musician Praiz. Then Pepsi took things to a level higher as the brand unveiled its jaw-dropping Confam fashion collection—four outfits by four designers. Suddenly, guests were sent into an absolute frenzy when Pepsi pulled out its big surprise. Four celebrity influencers, Beauty Tukura, Saskay, Hermes Iyele and Daala Oruwari pulled up to the runway in Pepsi Confam Fashion. Pepsi awarded the winning designer on the night, StatementByBami with 1.5 million naira.
Day Three: The Main Event Lights, Camera, Pepsi!
At the very centre of the awards night, in the midst of all the glitz, glam and splendour, Pepsi managed to steal the show again with a mesmerizing delivery of Confam Gbedu by the Queen of Afrobeats, Pepsi Ambassador Tiwa Savage. Tiwa gave us a 10/10 performance alongside our guy—Spyro, Majeed and award-winning band, Alternate sound. Add to that, Pepsi presented the award for the most fiercely competitive award category of the night, the prestigious Best Actress in a Drama, Movie or TV series Category. Osas Ighodaro walked home with the prize beating elite competition in the process. Segun Ogunleye, the General Manager of Marketing at Seven-Up Bottling Company, while presenting the award, extended his congratulations to the winner and acknowledged the incredible talent of the other nominees. He reiterated Pepsi’s dedication to supporting and recognizing the outstanding individuals in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

A Nigerian boy who faced disappointment after failing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) twice has found immense success by tapping into his talent as a comic book writer.
The inspiring story, which went viral on Twitter thanks to user Dev Tobs, sheds light on the young boy’s journey to financial prosperity and academic pursuits.
According to the Twitter thread, the unnamed boy attempted the UTME twice but did not achieve the desired results.
However, his family recognized his gift for writing and encouraged him to explore it further.
In a fortuitous twist, his brother, a close friend of Dev Tobs and a software engineer, advised him to publish his comic books on popular platforms like Amazon, Etsy, and others.
The boy channeled his efforts into his newfound passion and began publishing his comic books on the online platforms. The response was overwhelming, with readers appreciating his creative storytelling and unique artistic style.
As a result, his comic books started gaining significant traction and popularity, leading to substantial financial success.
The Twitter thread revealed that the talented writer amassed an astonishing sum of N14.5 million (approximately $19,000) within a span of two years.
Overwhelmed by his success, the boy made a life-changing decision to pursue his dreams further by relocating to Canada to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
“He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway, but his folks noticed he had a flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer, advised he starts hoisting the comic books he writes on this Amazon thingy, Etsy and one other one.” He has made so much money from it.
“Yes, you didn’t misread, he made $19k (N14.5 million). Two years down the line today, I got news he’s moved up to Canada for his bachelor’s and I couldn’t stop but feel happier.”

@ebenofere commented; “This is beautiful. You can make anything out of yourself if you really want it. Where there is a will, there is a way.”
