Kudos to Pompom. Your efforts, patience and hard work is been recognized. Nne, keep doing your thing. The movie will be out at its appointed time and God willing I will be there to celebrate with you guys.
She did invite me for that one but i didnt make it cos i had exams then.So i never see 30days, i read an interview with Ego Boyo in a magazine where she said they would be releasing it this year, if it does come out truly then i would get to see it. Truth is its been highly anticipated.
BEST LEAD ACTRESS:JACKIE APEA -PRINCESS TYRA,STELLA ABODERIN - WIDOW,KATE HENSHAW NUTTAL - STRONGER THAN PAIN,RAKIYA ATTAH - ACROSS THE NIGER,GENEVIEVE NNAJI - 30 DAYS/KEEP MY WILL,DORIS SIMEON – ONITEMI.
what in heavens name is Jackie Apea's name doing in that list. As far as am concerned she cant act jack. She won the best supporting actress last year (this same award) for her dumb performance in Beyonce when Ireti Doyle(sitanda) should have won it. This set get k-leg o. she just shouldnt be in the list.
BEST LEAD ACTOR: VAN VICKER - RETURN OF BEYONCE/PRINCESS TYRA,KANAYO KANAYO - ACROSS THE NIGER,NKEM OWOH - STRONGER THAN PAIN,SAINT OBI- CHECK POINT,OC UKEJE - WHITE WATER,KOFI BUCKNOR- RUN BABY RUN.
van vicker is promising but best actor nomination, hell no. I just think they want to balance the whole African thing so those ghanian actors would get a chance even if they don't deserve it. I wont be surprised if he wins.

Since Izu Ojukwu won last year, it would be fair to let someone else win. Am hoping Mildred Okwo takes it.
