With two weeks more to the second annual Nollywood & African Film Critics’ Awards (NAFCA 2012) lots of Ghanaian and Nigerian celebrities are preparing in high spirit to honor the event which will take off at Carolina Theater , Durham North Carolina, USA and will air worldwide.
Celebrated actor Van Vicker is the name that has been extremely associated with the awards. Reliable information to us has it that he will be the co-host of the 2012 event.
We had a chit chat with Van to know how he’s preparing for the program since the role of a co-host can be very challenging if the actual host is not that good or verbally supportive. He said people should not forget he has a radio and TV background. Unknown to many,
Van Vicker has worked with Top radio stations, TV 3, and Metro before entering the movie industry. “I used to do presenting or hosting of programmes so co-hosting such an event is like going back for my first love, is a small job for me” – Van said with a giggle. Van Vicker will be co-hosting with beautiful and talented Nollywood actress Angela.
