May 22, 2016 – Why Genevieve Nnaji’s First Movie Didn’t Get AMAA 2016 Nomination
Africa Movie Academy Awards organisers came under fire recently for refusing to nominate Genevieve Nnaji’s hit movie ‘Road To Yesterday’, a flick warmly received by critics.
A representative of AMAA said Genevieve Nnaji was contacted to release the details of her movie but her lack of response prompted them to consider another movie.
“We contacted the movie star several times for almost three weeks, all to no avail, “All we wanted was for her team to send in details about the movie, the video link, the DVD preview copy of the movie Road To Yesterday and a few other details but they never responded. They eventually did after the nominees list came out.” – said the rep. from AMAA
