In an online video, an agitated Ijebu can be seen chanting ‘ojoro,’ which translates to ‘fraud,’ seemingly directed at the recently held awards ceremony.

Although Ijebu did not explicitly mention AMVCA, he strongly suggested that his comments were related to the show by pointing out that Femi Adebayo’s movie failed to secure any awards despite its nomination.

In the video, Ijebu highlighted the overlooked movies by Femi Adebayo and expressed disappointment that his own recent film also went unrecognized at the event.

The video sparked mixed reactions, with some people supporting Ijebu’s claims of foul play, while others argued that Femi Adebayo’s movie, “Ageshinloke,” simply did not receive enough votes to win at the AMVCA.

One Simply Fadekemi wrote, “What about Kunle Remi and Ibrahim Chata that was not even nominated? Too bad”

Omoolamubo wrote, “U can’t say is Ojoro fully bcos award is not really about personality or being a popular actor is about interpretation of the characters in the particular movie example best actor was given to Tobi where chidi mokeme and other top legendary actors are in the same category (2) same in music everyone knows Tiwa is most popular female musician in Nigeria yet Tems got Grammy before bcos of 1 song ,so bro sometimes let put personal interest aside and see things from the true angle”

A user, Essy Gold wrote, “Did you guys vote your own? Until y’all start uniting and doing things in unity it’ll continue to look like ojoro to y’all. I’m sure some of your Yoruba molly people voted the winner. Ẹnu nìkan ni gbogbo yín ni bìtì ajakara, you don’t support one another.”

One Ashabi wrote, “Award should be score by a filmmaker not a film watcher , looking at characters interpretation, flexibility and energy , ageshinkole is far better than that particular movie Dey compare it with gan”

One Oritse Kemi wrote, “Bro don’t compare anikulapo to any movie pls no movies stand anikulapo Almost everyone in Nigeria watch it agesinkule is Yoruba how many Igbo or Hausas hear Yoruba”
