Nov 30, 2013 – Nigerian Actresses Pay Bribe To Win Nollywood Awards – Seun Oloketuyi

Mr Seun Oloketuyi, the organizer of Best Of Nollywood Awards has exposed the dirty secrets of many ladies in the Nollywood movie industry.

Hear what he said in a recent interview with Punch:

Interviewer: Do the actors/actresses try to bribe you to manipulate the awards in their favour?

Seun Oloketuyi: It depends on how you hold yourself. I remember in the third edition when the nominees list came out, one actress sent somebody to call me and offer me money in order for her to win. I told the person that the money they offered me wouldn’t change my life in any way. It is just the money I could spend in less than 24 hours. If I collect money from anybody, before the next award, the person would easily tell a nominee to just go and pay a certain amount to me if she or he wanted to win. We have a long way to go. Award ceremony is very sensitive. Once you get it wrong the first time, you are doomed. There is no second chance. Because of that, I cannot collect money from anybody. But then again, I noticed that once the nominee’s list comes out, some people start giving us jobs for our other businesses.
