The Acacia Premier Hotel in Kisumu city was the site where the Riverwood Academy Award 2018 winners were celebrated on Saturday September 15, 2018.
When the Kenyan film fraternity decide to throw down it doesn’t get better than the Riverwood Academy Awards. Many of the stars were shuttled from Nairobi on the official event bus before starting the biggest night of the year in the industry. Emceed by Wilbroda and Big Ted and screened on K24 TV, it was a memorable four hours starting with the red carpet that saw some of the most well-known names strut their stuff. Many actors and other players would follow the event theme “kipepeo” while being the rebels that they are, some failed to.
