At an event like the AMVCA where there can only be one winner, to win is to even be nominated for an award. This year however, in an unprecedented gesture, all nominees for a major category will be honored.
Chief Marketing Officer, Interswitch, Cherry Eromosele, announced on Saturday at the AMVCA presentation ceremony, that all nominees in the Best Supporting Actor category – sponsored by Verve – will be rewarded.
The nominees: RMD, OC Ukeje, Yemi Blaq, Blossom Chukwujekwu and Segun Arinze will go on record as the first set AMVCA contenders to all receive prizes.
Blossom Chukwujekwu walked away with the plaque for Best Supporting Actor 2015 after a keenly contested battle. He will receive a customized Verve card, which is pre-loaded with an undisclosed sum of money.
RMD, OC Ukeje, Segun Arinze and Yemi Blaq will also received funded customised Verve cards to support their personal pet projects.
