Sabinus win at the AMVCA stirs reactions
The African Magic Viewers Choice Award (AMVCA) trended online as celebrities who bagged awards at the event, which took place in Lagos, thanked their fans and followers.
However, popular Twitter user Daniel Regha stirred reactions after he said popular skit maker Oga Sabinus doesn’t deserve the AMVCA for the best online content creator, according to him, Mr Macaroni was more deserving of the award as he accused organisers of the events of favouritism.
“Sabinus winning the AMVCA award for “Best Online Social Content Creator” is a big joke, no-one deserves that recognition more than Macaroni; Y’all can hype Sabinus all u want but Macaroni is doin more with his skits than other comedians right now. Sabinus won out of favorit!sm..”
