Veteran Yoruba actor, Ibrahim Chatta, has spoken about not being nominated and invited for the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award, AMVCA.
Ibrahim Chatta, who spoke during a radio show, shared the video on his Instagram page.
The actor said he wasn’t pained about AMVCA not nominating him because their are a lot of talents in Nollywood. But what bothered him was that he didn’t get an invite for the show.
He mentioned how a lot of his junior colleagues were invited while he got snubbed.
“My exclusion from the nomination list didn’t make me feel bad because no matter how hard you think you are working, your mates are also working, and the best has to be picked every year. But my problem is that they didn’t invite me and that looks like a conspiracy against me.
“I understand that it’s not everyone that gets nominated into the categories, but at least they’re supposed to invite me, but they don’t. So, I do feel like – is it that my works are not worthy enough? Because I used to see my younger colleagues, including those that just joined Nollywood, all showing off in different outfits at the event,” he said.
Chatta said he would not let any award affect his skills or work. He disclosed his goal is to receive an Oscar before leaving this earth.
“I will receive an Oscar before I leave this world. I don’t want any award to disturb my skills or my work. When you start thinking about not receiving an award, it makes you weary, and I don’t want to be. Oscar is my target,” Chatta said.
