Yemi Solade: I Gave My BON Award To Femi Adebayo Because He Lives In Ibadan

Veteran Nollywood actor Yemi Solade who almost caused a scene at the just concluded Best of Nollywood award in Ibadan Oyo state has revealed why he abandoned his award plague for Femi Adebayo when the event organizers announced two actors as the winner of the same category.

In this recent chat with Sunday Scoop, the actor reveals why he took the controversial decision to hand over the award plaque to Mr Adebayo.

His words:

“I wasn’t surprised that the movie, Irolabi, did well. When I saw it, I thought I did a lot of work. When they announced two persons as the winners of that category, it was like a comedy but I guess they have their reasons. I gave the plaque to Adebayo since he stays in Ibadan.

If they make another award, I will collect it. But I enjoyed the fact that I won the best actor and it is now part of my CV.”

“It was a competitive one but I think I deserved it and I needed the award as a reward for my effort this year. Some people felt I was old but it was about the role, not the age.

I was given a role by a producer, Lekan Quadri, who I didn’t know before. Though we shared the award, I still rate myself higher than Adebayo because he played the lead role in his movie, Etiko Onigedu.”
