“All is fraud and cheating” Angry Ijebu calls out AMVCA for cheating in their Awards
Nollywood actor, Olatayo Amokade has accused the organizers of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), which just ended, of cheating in their awards.
A video of an angry Ijebu chanting “ojoro” (literally translated as “fraud”) at the recently concluded show was captured online.
Ijebu didn’t mention AMVCA but he made it clear he was referring to the show, as Femi Adebayo’s film did not win any awards despite being nominated.
From the video, Ijebu mentioned movies by Femi Adebayo which had been neglected by the awards and also noted that his latest film was not rewarded last night.
Mixed reactions trail Ijebu’s video as some agreed with the actor’s cry of foul, while others claimed Femi Adebayo’s Ageshinloke did not garner enough votes for it to win at the AMVCA show.

Omoolamubo wrote, “U can’t say is Ojoro fully bcos award is not really about personality or being a popular actor is about interpretation of the characters in the particular movie example best actor was given to Tobi where chidi mokeme and other top legendary actors are in the same category (2) same in music everyone knows Tiwa is a most popular female musician in Nigeria yet Tems got Grammy before bcos of 1 song, so bro sometimes let put personal interest aside and see things from the true angle”
A user, Essy Gold wrote, “Did you guys vote your own? Until y’all start uniting and doing things in unity it’ll continue to look like ojoro to y’all. I’m sure some of your Yoruba molly people voted the winner. Ẹnu nìkan ni gbogbo yín ni bìtì ajakara, you don’t support one another.”
One Ashabi wrote, “Award should be score by a filmmaker not a film watcher , looking at characters interpretation, flexibility and energy , ageshinkole is far better than that particular movie Dey compare it with gan”
One Oritse Kemi wrote, “Bro don’t compare anikulapo to any movie pls no movies stand anikulapo Almost everyone in Nigeria watch it agesinkule is Yoruba how many Igbo or Hausas hear Yoruba”
