Funke Akindele received ten nominations for her box office smash, Battle on Buka Street. She was nominated in nine AMVCA categories for Battle on Buka Street, and one for her Africa Magic series, My Siblings & I.
A Nollywood movie influencer noticed Ibrahim Chatta’s omission from Femi Adebayo’s film King of Thieves’ nomination. His pivotal role was instrumental in the film’s success.
Sharing their thoughts online, many noted that Ibrahim Chatta is a brilliant actor who is good at interpreting different roles perfectly. He has delivered perfectly well since the first time he appeared on the screen as an actor.
