Nse Ikpe-Etim, a well-known Nollywood actress, has sparked outrage after losing the AMVCA award for Best Actress to Osas Ighodaro.
Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe Etim has spoken out in response to her younger colleague Osas Ighodaro’s AMVCA victory against her.
Gistlover announced that Osas Ighodaro has won the Best Actress in a Drama category at the AMVCA 2023 for the second time in a row for her part in ‘Man of God’.
The actress’s performance in “Man of God” earned her a prestigious award..
Osas Ighodaro defeated Bimbo Ademoye, Queen Nwokoye, Ini Edo, Nse Ikpe, and others to win the prestigious honor
The nominees in the category included Bimbo Ademoye for her outstanding performance in “Anikulapo,” Enado Odigie for her role in “Flawsome,” Immaculata Oko Kasum for her captivating portrayal in “Ile Owo,” Ini Dima-Okojie for her remarkable performance in “Flawsome,” Ini Edo for her powerful presence in “Shanty Town,” Nimo Loveline for her compelling performance in “The Planters Plantation,” Nse Ikpe-Etim for her impactful role in “Shanty Town,” Queen Nwokoye for her brilliant performance in “Strained,” and Scarlet Gomez for her exceptional portrayal in “Wura.”
With the caliber of people in the category, many weren’t expecting Osas to clinch the award, especially when her performance in MOG couldn’t be compared to the likes of Ini Edo, Nse Ikpe, and Queen.
Many felt that the movie star was undeserving of the award, especially in the category she was placed with.
Shortly after Osas delivered her acceptance speech on the grand stage, a Twitter user congratulated Osas on her huge win, taking to his comment section, Nse Ikpe left a laughing emoji.
Recall that last year, Osas Ighodaro also won the award for Best Actress in Drama for her role in ‘Rattle Snake’.
