Some Nigerians have taken to the microblogging platform X to express their displeasure after Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, was snubbed in all nominated categories in the 10th African Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs).

AMVCA, an annual award organised by MultiChoice, recognises outstanding achievements in the television and film industry.

The event was held on Saturday at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos State.

Despite being nominated in multiple categories, including Best Makeup, Best Writing in a Movie, Best Lead Actress, Best Movie, and Best Supporting Actor, Funke Akindele’s movie, ‘A Tribe of Judah’, failed to take home any awards.

The latest development has sparked mixed reactions from fans.
