‘Best, realest AMVCA ever’ – Toyin Abraham hails organisers as her rival, Funke Akindele misses out

Nollywood actress and producer, Toyin Abraham, has lauded the organisers of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, AMVCA, for the success of this year’s edition.

DAILY POST reports that the 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards has been trailed by criticisms after Funke Akindele’s record-breaking film, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ was snubbed.

‘A Tribe Called Judah’ lost all five nominations despite becoming the first Nigerian movie to gross over N1 billion in cinemas last December.

However, her rival Toyin Abraham described the edition as the “best and realest ever.”

On her Instagram page, Abraham wrote: “Best and realest AMVCA ever. Well done, @busola.tejumola. You did well and yes, we love you. @africamagic, well done. ”

This is coming barely two weeks after Abraham extended an olive branch to her colleague, Funke Akindele, saying they they became “competitors and persona non grata” due to gossips.

She recalled that their rivalry began in the Yoruba movie industry and they carried it over to the Nigerian-English cinema when they crossed over to Nollywood.

Abraham, however, said age and wisdom have made her realised that they can compete without being negatively competitive.
