HOUSTON – The entrance pavilion revealed a high expectation from ticket holders at the recently held inaugural Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards-GIAMA in Houston Texas. Fans had arrived early to catch a glimpse as well as receive the privilege of an autograph from the expected Icons. As the stars including Uche Jumbo, Ramsey Nouah, Van Vicker, Desmond Elliot, Jim Iyke, John Dumelo and Majid Michel among others alighted from the chauffeur driven white limousine, attention was refocused to the black carpet. Apparels adorned by fans were quickly adjusted as beaming faces leaned over the surge protecting rails to create an attracting appeal.
