Ibrahim Chatta: Nigerian movies awards lack credibility – Actor
NEWS DIGEST – Popular Yoruba actor, Ibrahim Chatta has stated that Nigerian Movies Awards lack credibility.
The Nollywood Producer said this during an interview with Television Continental (TVC) earlier today.
Defending his claims, the actor said “Most award organisers wouldn’t honour you if you don’t submit your film in the entries.”
He further stated that, “the organisers ask movie stars if they will be attending the event ceremony if they are not coming, you automatically lose the awards,” he said.
Mr Chatta further alleged that some awards wouldn’t give you awards if you don’t ‘buy’ seats at the event.
Mr Chatta’s Criticism may stir up debates on the credence of awards in the entertainment industry in Nigeria.
One of the most popular movie awards in Nigeria is Nollywood movie awards.
The Nolly Awards, formerly the Nollywood Movies Awards, is an annual Nigerian film award presented by the Nollywood Movies to honour outstanding achievement in the Nigerian film industry. The inaugural edition was held at the Civic Center, Lagos on 2 June 2012.
