Journalist, Kemi Olunloyo reveals reason behing Actor, Kunle Remi’s snub from AMVCA

Controversial investigative journalist Kemi Olunloyo has revealed the reason why actor was snubbed by the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, despite his heartwarming performance for Kunle Afolayan's Anikulapo.

It came as a surprise to many when Kunle Remi's name was not included in the nomination list for Anikulapo movie, after the film bagged 16 nominations.

In an online post, Kemi Olunloyo disclosed that Kunle Remi was snubbed over an alleged disrespect for a senior colleague and because he reportedly stepped on some toes in the industry.

Kemi claimed that Kunle Remi's allegation of a senior actor trying to force him into homos##xuality excluded his name from the nomination list of the prestigious awards.

She also revealed that she would be mentioning the name of the senior colleague that tried to lure Kunle Remi and made him lose his nomination.

She wrote, “Actor Kunle Remi was snubbed in the AMVCA Nominations despite a stellar performance in the Kunle Afolayan movie.

“Why? Alleged ‘disrespect' for a senior colleague. He was said to have been excluded because he allegedly stepped on some toes in the industry following an interview he granted an online platform some weeks back where he alleged that a certain popular figure tried to lure him into homosexuality.

“Shame that the same movie bagged 16 nominations, and he didn't get one. That's the Nigerian movie industry for you.
