Lawal Michael Nasiru Bolaji, the popular Nigerian skit maker and singer, who is also known as Nasboi, has slammed the organizers of the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA.
He berated the AMVCA for not nominating him in the Online Social Content Creator category, in the award’s ninth edition.
The artist claimed he submitted a video for nomination but did not get a mention while skit makers below him were nominated.
He stated this while featuring on TVC’s programme, ESplash, recently.
Nasboi insisted that he had a better 2022 than most skit makers, career wise, insisting that he deserves at least, a nomination even if he was not going to win the award.
He said, “You know AMVCA started involving us; content creators category exactly two years ago. That first time, I wasn’t really upset [that I was not nominated]. But this second time if AMVCA is watching, I deserved a nomination.
“In the first year, my friend that got a nomination said, bro, ‘We submitted [our videos to AMVCA for nomination consideration].’ I’m like, okay, that makes sense. I can understand why I was omitted.
“But 2023, this one that just passed, Nasboi was fire in 2022. I deserved a nomination. This is a humble brag. 2022, I was on fire. I made amazing contents; funny and inspirational. Then, I submitted a video [to AMVCA for nomination consideration]. A video way better than a lot of the videos that were nominated.
“You know, when I saw the nominations. I expected a nomination. I want to win but I don’t win, I’m fine. But I just needed to get a nomination because I deserved it.”
