Big Ghun’s Leaked ‘saves’ Ghana at 2023 AMVCAs

Leaked, a movie co-directed by Ghanaian musician cum film director, Nicholas Tetteh Nartey widely known as Big Ghun saved Ghana at this year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) when it picked the MultiChoice Talent Factory award last Saturday, May 20.


Big Ghun’s latest feat comes a year after his show film, KORO was nominated in the Best Short Film category at last year’s awards ceremony.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Big Ghun said winning her first AMVCAs is the best feelings ever particularly when he is living his dream of being a global film maker.

“It’s one of the best feelings ever. For someone who dreams to take his art global, this feels like a start of something big and from this point, I really want to put out great productions and hope to get support from Ghana’s film industry,” he stated.

Big Ghun’s win is quite historic considering that this is the first time a winner is coming from West Africa.

Big Ghun was also full of praises for his co-director, Andrea Peregrino for her great input in making the production a success.

“Leak’s co-director is a Nigerian and she was quite instrumental in the success of this production. I’m quite excited to know that we are both young filmmakers and this is encouraging for Africa’s film industry,” he said.

Africa Magic Viewers' Choice Awards is an annual accolade presented by MultiChoice recognising outstanding achievement in television and film in Africa.

The event which was held in Lagos saw the display of glamour and glitz from talents within the entertainment industry.
