#AMVCA7: Here’s What People Are Saying about “King of Boys” Getting Snubbed



The much-anticipated awards show Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) is over, but people will continue to talk about it for a while.

One thing that’s being discussed is that the epic “King of Boys” got denied an award.

It came as a surprise to many that Kemi Adetiba‘s “King of Boys” which starred Sola Sobowale, Toni Tones, Illbliss, Akin LewisReminisce, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, and many others, got snubbed at the award event.

“King of Boys” also got multiple nominations, yet won no award for its outstanding cast and crew.

Here’s what people are saying:

    It’s viewers choice award. If the viewers didn’t vote, we can’t blame the organizers. People won’t necessarily vote for the work but the person behind it. Ramsey has more Instagram followers and fans than Kemi. Ramsey’s people showed up.

    The only things that were great to me about the movie were the soundtrack “Original gangster” and Toni Tones’ and Reminisce’s acting.

    The script was bleh imho. Sola overacted. They robbed Adekunle Gold, Sarz and Reminisce. My 2 cents oh! #Dahzall.

    AMVCA is a ‘Viewers Choice’ award …equivalent to that of People’s Choice Award (PCA) in the US.

    It is not the Oscars or Critics award ….

    Why are people losing sleep? you need votes to win, the fans vote..

    It is very possible that some of the people who voted their favourite may not have even watched ‘King of Boys’

    Unfortunately due to lack of credible award bodies/shows in the country and continent, people seem to take this award more seriously than it ought to be

    Well maybe the people that are commenting did not even vote so how will they expect the vote to count for something.. moreover living in boundage is a different class of it own I don’t think we had such a movie in this modern nollywood era.. but for king of boys we have the likes of merry men which is to me better than king of boys so why are they so uptight about the whole thing… when we think outside the box we do something different from the usual.. their comment is a slap on living in boundage like it just a normal movie.
