Actress Nse Ikpe-Etim Sparks Outrage After Losing The AMVCA Award For Best Actress To Osas Ighodaro

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Veteran actress Nse Ikpe-Etim raised some eyebrows with her reaction after losing the AMVCA award for Best Actress to her female colleague, Osas Ighodaro.

The Screen Diva was nominated for her remarkable performance in the Netflix original series “Shanty Town.”

Nse was nominated alongside Shanty Town co-star Ini Edo, as well as Enado Odigie (Flawsome), Immaculata Oko-Kasum (Ile Owo), Ini Dima-Okojie (Flawsome), Queen Nwokoye (Strained), Scarlet Gomez (Wura), and Nimo Loveline (The Planters Plantation).

Bimbo Ademoye was a strong favorite for the category for her starring role in Anikulapo, but it was Osas Ighodaro who walked away with the trophy for the night for Man of God, another Netflix project.

Minutes after Osas gave her speech on the big stage, Ikpe-Etim tweeted a single laugh emoji, which generated the kind of reaction you’d expect online.

In her acceptance speech, Osas was excited to share how the win made her feel included again in the industry.

This means a lot because there are many times I felt counted out. Thank you AMVCA, and Bolanle Austin-Peters for believing in me,” she said.


Ikpe-Etim’s Shanty Town co-star, Chidi Mokeme, also lost the Best Actor in a Drama award to Tobi Bakre (Brotherhood).

Anikulapo and Brotherhood tied for the most awards of the night with five each.
