“The Award is not mansion, it doesn’t reduce my value” – Kunle Remi brag after being snub AMVCA
Nollywood actor, Kunle Remi, has taken to social media to express his thoughts on being snubbed at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) this year.
Recalls that Kunle who played the lead actor role in Anikulapo did not make the list despite the movie bagging 16 nominations in the list released on Sunday, April 16, 2023.
Since the announcement of the nomination list, fans have chastised AMVCA organizers for what they see as a deliberate exclusion of the actor.
In a recent interview on TVC, Kunle Remi made it clear that he was not bothered by the snub and emphasized that an award does not define his worth or talent.
He wrote, ” It’s not mansion, I like the fact that people spoke and asked why I was not nominated. I can’t really have answers to that, the organizers have the answer to it.
For me, it doesn’t reduce my value or make me less of a screen god. Anikulapo still broke the record it broke, still, number one watched fit globally as a language film, next to squid game and I put in work and effort.
I didn’t do that because of the award but because it was a challenge. And it was such a privilege to play that character. I will never forget and I think that was the greatest award.”
