Nollywood actor, Zubby Michael has criticized the organizers of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards over an alleged snub of “pillars of Nollywood”.
The actor who insisted that most organizers of the award are Yorubas, described it as a “joke and highly political”. Zubby also wondered why the original owner of “Living in Bondage” was snubbed while its remake got 8 awards.

Esther Nkechi: He is right. I concur. Especially the real owner of Living in Bondage deserve an award. Or even recognition.
Maryjane Umunna: Zubby low key needs this award,,,but no by to carry gun and shouting for movie haaahhaaa😀
Ben Lala: if you do well you will get an award…lets be real what is zubby acting? lets be sincere to ourselves….. there is a difference between NOLLYWOOD and ASABAWOOD!……
u cant be acting poorly written storylines, making noise everywhere and expect an AMVCA….. I applaud the organisers, they did well……
go to LASU and let their SUG government look for one award to give u…. nonsense
Joy Trademark: But he said the truth and I respect him more for that. We all know the pillars of Nollywood and yet they weren’t awarded that day. Anyway those people are still great without the stupid award. That’s how Grammy award is, they don’t award the best people.
Stephanie Swizz NK: They are really Ndi ara ndi ara…..the legends of nollywood weren’t mentioned……we are really living in bondage in this country
Daniel Regha: Rubb!sh mumuish talk, oga please keep qu!et. The fact that the awards didn’t go in your favour doesn’t give you the right to insult the organizers. They worked super hard to organise an event like that just as they have done over the years, the same people you insulted by calling them “mad people” have been supporting your career by giving you recognition. Be guided cos pride goes before a fall, focus on your acting career and appreciate the good AMVCA are doing in the industry…🙏
Chikodili Ezekwu: Don’t be envious of upcoming talents. That jidenna in Living in bondage deserves award. That film alone is the best for my throughout last year.
Living in bondage is total representation of Igbo, the film is even an Igbo film as igbo was used in the movie many times, even Ramsey Noah had to learn Igbo Language just for that movie. If you are talking about yorubas beings among AMVA organizers why didn’t king or boys win anything?
Allow upcoming artist to be recognized, the old ones are well known already.
Jesse Nwabueze: If you are not happy go and organize your own award, nominate your self and give yourself all the award. Stop bringing tribal sentiment to every issue. Grow up man
Maureen Onyekwe: Zuby we are talking about movies with class not una Asaba movies ok..just try to upgrade..pete edochie and mama G have been recognise by Amvca before ,let them appreciate others again..
Vivian Augustine: He is very correct, Toyin Abraham won award when we have good actresses like Destiny Otiko, Regina Daniels, Eve Ese, Rachael Okonkwo and co
