It is quite challenging living in this part of the world and getting the news about the glits and glamour of the Nigerian entertainment industry. As a business woman, Blogger, Social media/entertainment and POLITICAL enthusiast , I have often relied on friends in the entertainment circus, social media and TV to get information about happenings in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
I have always wanted to watch all the movie awards live on TV or physically attend them, but circumstances and location is such a huge barrier, but will soon be history as I will be moving back to Nigeria soon.
Back to the NOLLYWOOD MOVIE AWARDS that held last night 18/10/2014. I finally got the opportunity of watching it live as shown on Oh TV channel. Thanks and no thanks to OH Tv. Thanks to them for being able to bring such a horror to behold on live TV and no thanks to them as most of the times, I felt like I was watching NTA channel from my village. Too many technical errors and noise. Majority of Nollywood Stars were not even there. The big stars that managed to attend were swallowed up by razz people.
Where do I start from? the lady below by name Toyin Aimakhu the very proud Vice President of Actors Guild of Nigeria. She is so arrogant and have no respect for public events. On 2 occasions she jumped up to receive awards on behalf of people who didn’t deem it fit to turn up for the event, which I don’t blame them cos they would’ve been bored through their *nipples*. Then the 3rd time she presented an Award, stayed back on stage and chatting away shamelessly while using hand gestures to demonstrate to whomever she was chatting to, therefore distracting and annoying everybody.
Toyin Aimakhu should be taught how to compose herself in public and not tell us she is the producer of movies that won awards (and so FREAKING WHAT!!!) and therefore must collect the meaningless trophies they bought amongst themselves. She was so annoying that she ruined the whole experience for everyone in the room where we watched the Award last night. Plus I noticed the clique of Yoruba actresses who are organisers, the award recipients and also producers themselves…lolz.
For once in my life I agree with Clarion Chukwurah that these Awards are just cheap plagues and the organisers are just after money and nothing more.
Secondly, Denrele Edun and Dakore Egbuson are the most set of boring hosts I’ve ever seen hosting Awards. Denrenle was so unprofessional and probably thought speaking pigeon English and trying too hard to be funny meant he was down to earth or probably a core good Nigerian. Hell no it made him appear so annoying, ghettoish and loud mouthed.
Uru Eke, was there speaking through her nose that a producer Kunle Afolayan got confused with her question and responded in the dumbest form ever!!! Everybody speaking English with their local intonation and forming phonetics..hehehehe.
