“All is Fraud and Cheating” ~ Nollywood Actor Ijebu blows hot as he calls out AMVCA for cheating in their Awards
The recently held Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, or AMVCA, have been criticized by Nollywood star Olatayo Amokade, often known as Ijebu, for allegedly being rigged.
A furious Ijebu was seen in an online video yelling “ojoro,” which is literally translated as “fraud,” at the recently finished performance.
Ijebu did not specifically name the AMVCA, but he made it apparent that he was alluding to the event because Femi Adebayo’s film failed to win any prizes despite being nominated.
Ijebu cited films by Femi Adebayo that the awards had overlooked in the video and also mentioned that his most recent movie had not been honored last night.
There have been conflicting views to Ijebu’s video; some people have agreed with the actor’s cries of foul while others have argued that Ageshinloke, Femi Adebayo’s album, did not receive enough votes to win at the AMVCA awards.
