Did you watch last night’s Africa Movie Academy Awards? Very likely you didn’t.

That said, there were huge winners which shouldn’t surprise anyone: Kemi Adetiba’s juggernaut of a political thriller King of Boys won Best Nigerian film, a movie anchored by brilliant performances by Sola Sobowale and Adesua Etomi-Wellington, who both clinched the awards for Best Actress and Best Actress in a Supporting Role respectively. King of Boys bagged three out of its five nominations.
