  1. Congratulations to the winners.

    The Rattle snake, is it the old movie or is there a new one??
    I want to watch that Rattle snake ; heard so much about it.

  2. Congratulations to all winners..Kemi Adetiba Welldone!! King of Boys was the first Nigerian movie I watched at the cinema and I never regretted it..The world is your oyster..

    1. Abi o. almost 3 hours but intriguing

    2. Just watched it last week, my husband so lolove the movie

      *Larry was here*

  3. King of Boys worth the win. very interesting movie

  4. Congratulations to all the winners! .... But I love the gold statue! my Gabriel Afo should have won!

    1. Gabriel is a very good actor but underrated. Gold statue is a lovely movie.

    2. Gabriel Afo is truly underrated
      Guy is good. Still have gold statue on my phone.

    3. Were can I download ghost status from

  5. congratulations to aunty solasobowale and adesuwa.congratultions all

  6. All these stuff are bought and paid for

    1. Na dem
      Never see good
      Koshi ojare

  7. Na wa o. How can a film get more than five nominations and win nothing! Not even one award? Chai, how dare you raise the hope of the producer, director and actors so high and and crashed it at the end? It's painful.

    And if you are wondering about the film I'm talking about,check the list 👆 again.

    Another film I thought wouldn't win any award too after five nominations finally got one award for "best cinematography".

    Congratulations to all the winners.

  8. Congrats. Mercy of the jungle nearly pick all the awards.

  9. There was nothing special about Adesua’s role in king of boys, just like a Pa to her mom. In my opinion she doesn’t deserve the best supporting actress. She’s a good actress no doubt .

    1. Exactly what I said

    2. Exactly. I dont even think she's a fanstastic actress. Her best movie yet is King of Boys. But I'm honestly wondering why Toni tones wasn't on that list. she really deserved it than adesua. either ways good luck to the winners and nominees.

    3. Toni Tones should have been nominated instead.

    4. When I kept saying that Adesua’s acting is only skin deep people were saying No, now everyone can see she’s just lucky and can speak British English and of course she’s fair skinned naturally. Outside of that, Adesua is an average actor.

  10. What’s up north doing there, nothing special about Adesuwa’s acting in king of boys. gold statue deserves an award

    1. But did you vote? Aren't these awards given based on votes after nominations. Vote first them complain.

  11. I love King of Boys. Adesua did fantastic and I would have been mad if she didn't win.

  12. King of boys, that woman e, very interesting

  13. Congratulations to all d winners...thumb up to Sola sobowale n Adesua etomi

  14. Congratulations to all the winners and kemi adetibe's king if boys. Beautiful story,great caste.


  16. why didn't reminsce win for best supporting actor? his performance was stellar in King of boys
