Alex Ekubo is in celebratory mood and he has every reason. The popular Nollywood actor woke up to a message on WhatsApp from Ayodeji Richard Makun (AY Comedian) who stated that he was proud of him. He sent along a photo showing that Ekubo had won BEST ACTOR at the just concluded TORONTO INTERNATIONAL NOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL (TINFF 2022).
“I woke up yesterday morning to a WhatsApp message from @aycomedian saying “ I’m so proud of you” & he sent me this photo.
Ladies & Gentlemen, we won
BEST ACTOR at the just concluded TORONTO INTERNATIONAL NOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL
To everyone who keeps praying for my continuous growth, pls don’t stop it’s working. ??
Every Actor prays for that one Character that would let them express range & depth, sadly an actor can go through his entire career lifespan & never be given the opportunity to uncover.
Thank you Nna Anyi AY for sharing your light with me & trusting me with SALIHU, I hope everyone that encounters this movie feels his pain, blood sweat & tears.
