Nollywood actor Kunle Remi has addressed his snub at the nominations of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) 2023.
Kunle Remi was snubbed from the nominations list of the prestigious awards despite his starring role in Kunle Afolayan’s epic drama, Anikulapo, which earned 16 nominations.
Anikulapo bagged 16 nominations from AMVCA, while the lead actor, Kunle Remi, whose role geared many to watch the movie, was not part of the 16 nominations.
Speaking in an interview, Your View, Kunle Remi aired his opinion about his snub from the award. According to him, AMVCA does not belong to him, neither does he host the show. He claimed his snub has no way reduced him, his stylishness, fame, or energy.
Kunle Remi claimed he is unshaken by the snub because his role as ‘Saro’ was not taken because of an award, but rather because of a challenge.
Many have concluded that Kunle Remi’s snub was a result of an interview he granted where he spoke about a senior colleague trying to lure him into homosexuality.
