Nollywood actor Olatayo Amokade, also known as Ijebu, has accused the organizers of the recently concluded Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, AMVCA, of cheating in their awards.
An enraged Ijebu was seen on tape yelling ‘ojoro,’ which translates as ‘fraud,’ at the recently finished show.
Although Ijebu did not say AMVCA, he made it apparent that he was referring to the show because Femi Adebayo’s film did not win any of the nominations.
According to the video, Ijebu listed movies by Femi Adebayo that were overlooked by the Oscars, as well as the fact that his most recent picture was not recognized last night.
Mixed reactions have followed Ijebu’s video, with some agreeing with the actor’s cry of foul, while others argue Femi Adebayo’s Ageshinloke did not receive enough votes to win at the AMVCAs.

Omoolamubo wrote, “U can’t say is Ojoro fully bcos award is not really about personality or being a popular actor is about interpretation of the characters in the particular movie example best actor was given to Tobi where chidi mokeme and other top legendary actors are in the same category (2) same in music everyone knows Tiwa is most popular female musician in Nigeria yet Tems got Grammy before bcos of 1 song ,so bro sometimes let put personal interest aside and see things from the true angle”
A user, Essy Gold wrote, “Did you guys vote your own? Until y’all start uniting and doing things in unity it’ll continue to look like ojoro to y’all. I’m sure some of your Yoruba molly people voted the winner. Ẹnu nìkan ni gbogbo yín ni bìtì ajakara, you don’t support one another.”
One Ashabi wrote, “Award should be score by a filmmaker not a film watcher , looking at characters interpretation, flexibility and energy , ageshinkole is far better than that particular movie Dey compare it with gan”
One Oritse Kemi wrote, “Bro don’t compare anikulapo to any movie pls no movies stand anikulapo Almost everyone in Nigeria watch it agesinkule is Yoruba how many Igbo or Hausas hear Yoruba”
