Tope Adebuniyan, also known as Teddy A, a Big Brother Naija reality show star, has questioned the organisers of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA, over the omission of Anikulapo lead actor Kunle Remi from the nominations, glamsquad reports
Remember that Kunle Afolayan’s 2022 film, Anikulapo, won the most nominations in the 2023 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards.
Despite the fact that the film was nominated in 15 different categories and received 16 nominations, Anikulapo lead actor Kunle Remi did not receive a single nomination.
Teddy A questioned the omission of Remi’s name from the award ceremony in a social media post, questioning if the lead actor’s omission was due to an interview in which he spilled some secrets.
“Congratulations to all the AMVCA nominees, but how did Kunle Remi not get any nominations after what we all saw in Anikulapo?” he wrote. Why didn’t they include @kunleremiofficial?
“Was it due to THAT interview?” I’m only asking politely.”
