“Most awards in Africa. #whotheycoolwithawards,” she tweeted, adding a laughing emoji. And in another tweet, she completed her statement, “Or peeps they’ll need favors from.”
Nelson’s latest movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, which she massively campaigned for last year, did not not make it to the 2016 AMVCA nominee list. And so, hours after her colleagues trooped to this year’s event, she went on Twitter to throw shade.
But she is not the first artiste who have had negative opinions about awards programmes in the continent. Last year, Burna Boy criticised the MTV Africa Music Awards after he didn’t make it to the major nominee list. The reggae-dancehall singer event tweeted at the MTV official handle, querying them on why he was not nominated.
