Somalian film ‘The Gravedigger’s Wife’ sweeps AMAA 2021 wins [See full list of winners]


With nominations announced back in October, the air was expectedly thick with anticipation for major categories including the spotlighted ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’ category which saw the nomination of Nollywood royalties Rita Dominic and Funke Akindele-Bello. Both actresses lost to Uganda star Joan Agaba for her role in the Morris Mugisha directed film ‘Stain’.

The highest win for the night went to Somalia’s ‘The Gravedigger’s Wife’ with six of nine nominations including the ‘Best Film’ category. Nigeria’s ‘Eyimofe’ followed closely with five of seven nominations.
