FAST raising Nigerian actress Monica Friday, has slammed her colleague, Zubby Micheal, for allegedly labeling organizers of the just concluded Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA7) tribalists.
Micheal had taken to his Instagram handle @zubbymichael on Tuesday, to express his reservations on the AMVCA7, stressing that some important personalities were not recognized as expected.
“Something is unchangeable, for example, can you change your biological father? That award was a joke and highly political `ndi ala Ndi ala,’; we know we know the meaning of Viewers’ Choice.
“I’m sure most of the organizers are Yoruba, they did not even recognize the pillars of Nollywood, and the original owner of Living in Bondage was not mentioned.
“But new Living in Bondage got eight awards; our dead heroes like Sam Loco and others were not mentioned. Award without people that made Mama G, Aki and Paw Paw, Pete Edochie Kanayo .O.Kanayo.“
Monica, who took a swipe on Michael, expressed her disappointment over his comments. She wrote on her Instagram handle @monicafriday; “By the way, the awards no get manual. You can go and have a meeting with the board. “Where have we gotten to see with this tribalism mentality?
