The 7th edition of Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards held last weekend at the Eko Hotels and Suites Victoria Island, Lagos had ended in grand style, yet amidst so much controversy.
Since the show which was anchored by seasoned broadcasters Amina Abdi Rabar and Ik Osakioduwa ended, lots of displeased celebrities have come out to express their dissatisfaction over the way the award was organized.
It would be recalled that leading the night was the movie, Living in Bondage with a total of 8 wins while Toyin Abraham won Best Actress for her role in Elevator baby, followed by Timini Egbuson, who clinched the award for Best Actor for his role in same movie.
The likes of Nollywood actor Zubby Michael was not pleased with the fact that the New Living in Bondage clinched 8 Awards without any form of recognition to the Old Living in Bondage which actually paved way for the celebrated one.
“I am sure most of the organizer are Yoruba. They did not even recognize the pillars or Nollywood, the original owner of loving in Bondage was not mention but new living in Bondage got 8 awards, our dead heroes like Sam Loco and others where not mentioned, Award without people that made Mama G, Ski and Paw paw, Pete Edochie, Kanayo O Kanayo’.
