The talks about Funke Akindele getting snubbed at the AMVCAs also drew comments from people who felt those who won awards deserved them. Read some reactions below:


“Fun ke must not win every year, the tribe of Judah was great but breath of life deserve the accolades.”


“Breath of life deserved the award. Tribe called Judah is a mainstream movie, you watch once have a good laugh move on, Breath of life will be memorable.”


“The storyline of Breathe of Life was really great, and the movie tackled important societal issues that are unfortunately still prevalent in our country today, such as the oppression of the poor by the rich, the use of thugs to instill fear in citizens, misinterpretation of the law, and jungle justice. The actors also did an excellent job in their roles, and the location of the movie was impressive. While I think Tribe of Judah is a great movie, I personally prefer Breathe of Life.””


“Breath of life is a true and proper movie- well written and scripted, beautiful plot, amazing actors! Everything about breath of life including the delivery was masterful! True definition of literary genius! This should be the standard for Nollywood! No be by running around set Dey do cho cho cho.”


“Let’s not lie, let not steal. Breathe of life deserves the award.”
