      • luwababe August 8, 2011 at 2:58 pm

  • oma-peduru August 8, 2011 at 7:37 am

  • jezz August 8, 2011 at 8:15 am

    Halima indeed! City People Awards has always bn razz…

  • THE AMAKA August 8, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Halima Abubakar has done no major movie in the last year to even qualify. these awards have NO credibility whatsoever. Halima has only done those low budget Nollywood movies or the ones that have a lot of sex scenes, while we have other hardworking people in our industry doing serious work. SMH.
    and Juliet Ibrahim? the lady that gets made fun of for being one of the worst actresses in Ghana winning an award? not even Jackie Appiah or Nadia Buahri AT LEAST? these awards are a joke.
    M.I got three awards though, Kudos to him.
    but as for the acting, they probably dont even watch the movies to begin with.

    • Adwoa August 8, 2011 at 1:29 pm

      I so agree with you this award committee is a joke for Halima and Juliet Ibrahim to win an award. Where was Gevenieve, Nse, Uche, and Ini Edo?

  • kamasutra August 8, 2011 at 8:19 am

    No offence to madam juliet, goldie and halima but who dash monkey banana?
    And tha suspect’s collabo with female emcee’s was a way better collabo.

    • #CCR February 12, 2014 at 5:51 pm

      This is a part of alots we are facing in the Nigeria Industry. Hardworking pay less than connections.

  • Adwoa August 8, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Why is Juliet Ibrahim part of this award nominations? She is by far the worst actress in Ghana so why did she win an award? Of all the Ghanaian actress you couldn’t find anyone as the face of Ghana but Juliet Ibrahim……..wooow. This is riddicolous and how can Halima win actress of the year award? I really want to know which movie made her win best actress of the year.

    • polka August 8, 2011 at 2:31 pm

      I agree… Yvonne Nelson should have won that… or Jackie or Nadia.

  • boo August 8, 2011 at 2:21 pm

  • sasha August 8, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    HALIMA ABUBAKAR !! I AM AN ACTIVE NAIJA MOVIE WATCHER AND GIVING HER ACTRESS OF THE YEAR IS a big INSULT TO GENEVIEVE, STELLA ,RITA DOMINIC, Mercy, ini, OMONI ,NSE ,JACKIE AND KATE HENSHAW..ABI IS IT WHITE HUNTERS OR LADIES MEN/GANG THAT SHE GOT THE AWARD FOR ? this award is a joke ..and as for juliet ibrahim ..that babe cannot act to save her life..her acting ignites my anger cuz of how pathetic it is to watch her.

  • telemi August 8, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    • THE AMAKA August 8, 2011 at 6:18 pm

      lol, okay, sure. it seems you probably work for city people or maybe juliet or halima. what leading role has Halima done? in all honesty, i have only seen her do low budget movies or she is in some sex scene crazed movie. and the same goes for Ms Ibrahim. is that what we should be awarding? where is Nollywood going to go if we are celebrating mediocrity? in fact, less than mediocrity.

  • hamza August 8, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    In as much as I don’t support nollywood;I have to say halima was one of the people I didn’t like before because of some roles.But I love her now,and I speak for a lot of her fans dat she has put in 11yrs and deserve dis award..u all should b ashamed of ur selfs 4 being so tribelistic and judgemental

    • THE AMAKA August 8, 2011 at 6:15 pm

      who mentioned tribe here? are you serious? no one mentioned anything about what part of the country she comes from, and you are bringing that up from what angle? please get a life!

  • Ihatenonsense August 8, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    Useless Awards – any village champion and his crew gather together lately an awards show. This is the most useless awards show for the simple fact they awarded Halima and Juliette Ibrahim. The worst actresses on the continent. What a foolish awards – ig uess its awards for the TALENTLESS. Mtchewwww

  • Bachellorette August 8, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    This is HUGE JOKE JARE……

  • opeyemi August 8, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Tiwa is aii but she definitely did not deserve 2 win female artiste of the year! I mean! Like seriously?? All she has is one song! And a video! No beef but I think Asa would have been better off getting the female musician title or Omawumi. Hiiiissssss! Tiwa my foot!

  • honey koko August 8, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    City people awards has never been top notch. I think they just sit ard a table n think, “oh, who is yet to get one of our awards o. lets give Halima dis year”.
    Seriously, no one is beefing anybody,its laughable.

  • funky August 8, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Mi love some halimat and ya all gat ya opinions

  • coolcat August 8, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    I honestly do not know wat genre of music goldie falls into but if MI won for hip hop male, then she sure doesn’t qualify in the female category. Also she has assumed the title of “naija’s lady gaga” and gaga is a POP artist! That being said her cool “videos” definitely deserve recognition.

    Very happy for choc boys, wizkid and d rest of ‘em.

    To halima, juliet, when u receive so much backlash for an undeserving performance, u shud go back and do a self-appraisal, only then will u improve on ur work. I’m not a home video enthusiast but I have stumbled upon a few with halima and all I saw was short shorts, hideous make up and bad acting. Coincidentally juliet was on africa magic last night and it was pretty much the same case with halima.

    I am of the opinion that nominations/awards show that u have excelled in ur craft(for that period) and u are on the right track in developing urself. Now while I support encouraging people to be better, rewarding poor performance is actually a disservice. When ur child fails his exams do u say to him weldone and for this u r going first class to disney world, or do u say u tried but u can do much better, what r ur problem areas? Etc… If the former, u have accepted mediocrity and are ultimately destroying his/her life. In essence city people is misleading these artists and if u think d comments here r derrogatory, wait for reactions to their future works. Even where they r tryin, people will constantly make reference to, and question their awards!

    I do luv tiwa but heyyy, if she’s done 2 great songs and 1 video,mayb waje should’ve won , then d likes of kas beats, the prince, olamide, muna, even jimiyke(he too did song na) will say they deserve award!

    Just my 2kobo! Hehehehehe

  • eloho August 9, 2011 at 12:12 am

    LMAO at City People! wharrra mess mehhnn!

  • t-gurl August 9, 2011 at 3:08 am

    Lmao dis is hilarious wow halima n d ghanian babe.den mbong amata is nt a new actress dis is simply nt a gud work frm city pple sha dey are liars.kudos to wizkid M.I

  • jOlA August 20, 2011 at 5:58 am

    I’m so happy for Tiwa! a huge congrats..To be honest i dont know why Juliet won, Jackie Appiah deserves it!!!
