As Egbuson himself aptly puts it, “I have been in Nollywood for 11 years. From years of not being given AMVCA invites to getting nominated and winning. I don’t think that is a fast rise. I went through every step required. I once attended an audition of 4,000 people in Surulere, Lagos. I have experienced many rejections. Anybody that thinks it’s a fast rise is just myopic.”
