    • Peperempe November 15, 2012 at 2:40 am

      Uti has very poor taste in clothes. His clothes are almost always too tight, in random colours and with the the predictable 1-button jacket . His lack of style is starting to rub off on Alex..Where is that green shirt coming from biko?

      • Peperempe November 15, 2012 at 2:43 am

        Sorry, not green but orange. Still totally random though.

  • Retrochic November 13, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Congrats to those that deserve the awards they were given.
    But Uti n Tonto best ??? for where, Ive seen that ‘broken silence movie and trust me, its not worth the hype, I almost cried at the way Nollywood is going..how can u put someone like that as a main character,he has a great fan base for ‘jara’ and bba’ doesnt make him a great actor, Uti’s acting was as terrible as his dreads…Horrendous…
    Im just fed up of all dese awards that hold no weight.copy -copy..MTV is giving ‘best kiss’ in hollywood to those that deserve it doesnt mean we should throw it to ‘all n sundry’…Btw, Im not hating. I used to be a big fan but not anymore.

    Congratulations to the winners, Joe Benjamin, Nse, Femi, Tonto and the rest of them, Y’all deserve to be winners!!!!!

    As for the organisers, what’s the sense behind “Best kiss in a Nigerian movie”?! Where in the world is that done?! It is good for u to begin a trend o, but bikonu, best kiss?! should actors compete in kissing in movies now?! Oma ga o!

  • oma November 14, 2012 at 9:02 am

    nigerians are goingb gaga

  • Agbaya November 14, 2012 at 9:24 am

    Beefspotter n StacyB,
    I would just like to tell you that I’m not in the entertainment industry. I dont even live in Nigeria, and I havent even visited in over 5years,just manage to keep up with these things, so stop pointing fingers at the wrong people
    U guys need to tell these actors the truth sometimes. I gave him the commendation for jara cause,even though I have never watched the program,I hear its making waves in Nigeria n ofcourse BBA, i caught up with it online. Now tell me where the jealousy is coming from?
    That ‘Broken silence’ movie is the worst Nigerian movie I’ve watched in a long time, failed attempt on Uti’s part(he should enroll in acting classes) the little boy is a star though, very brilliant actor.
    This is my 2cents,stick to yours while I do same

  • her royalmajesty November 14, 2012 at 9:37 am
