    As usual another 419 award shows created by 419ers.
    Mschewwwwwwwwww – award show my foot
    I dont respect an nollywood award show.
    They are all a complete joke.
    At least we know people will use this for excuse to get visa to go to america.
    Via Ponzi Scheme

    I do like Omoni’s new hussle – her produced movies are good thus far
    But i say again these award shows are a Visa Ponzi scheme. Useless award shows. I mean some of the nominees a lone are a joke – like seriously .

    Let the truth be told

      Neither do we consider you as sensible. So no one cares about your comment as it’s not coming from an intelligent person anyway.

    Let me start by saying that the new development on Bellanaija is a big thumbs up. I mean the site is now very simple and it loads pretty fast now. I don’t think I have any reason to be visiting blogs anymore. Concerning the awards I want to say I wish all the nominated works goodluck.

    I really did prefer the old one website :(. The fonts here don’t appeal to me plus in general the site doesn’t look attractive (For lack of better word). Too busy and a bit confusing at first. The logo is nice tho, really like the logo. Anyways, congrats on turning 8. You all are really doing well. You still remain my all time fav naija Blog/website 😀

    How is it that Half of a Yellow Sun is already winning an award when it is yet to be viewed in Nigeria. What is wrong with you people? Who are the judges? Na wah o. As for last flight to Abuja, i don’t get why its still on the list. Was there no award in 2013?Hmm…
