The red carpet event included spectacular live performances by famous Nigerian singers P-Square, Banky W, Bayelsa State Cultural Troop, Groove Magic (Malawi), Waje (Nigeria), Timi Dakolo (Nigeria) and Kwelatebza (South Africa) and comedians included AY Makun and Funny Bone. Timi Dakolo's awesome song "Great Nation" got more applause than the national anthem of Nigeria as the audience gave him a well
 deserved standing ovation.

Kenneth Gyang's "Confusion Na Wa" won the Best Film and Best Nigerian Film awards.

The famous Mexican born American actor and director Mario Cain Van Peebles, son of film-maker Melvin Van Peebles known for his 1991 hit movie New Jack City was one of the invited special guests from Hollywood.
