    Not really but he is newer in the game than MI is. MI's first hit single crowd mentality had been on air since 2k6... he was certainly ignored then.

    I want to know the name of the film for which the actors are nominated because Genevieve Nnaji for Best Actress for films like Caught In The Act, Love Her Way and/or Beautiful Soul would be DEAD wrong! Sorry, we have seen Nnaji at her best in other films. Perfect Stranger, 30days...cool but for these three? No way Josefina!
