"The person who won deserved it" - Morayo Afolabi-Brown

After the recent AMVCA 2024 ceremony, Legit.ng spoke to ace journalist and the anchor TV show, Your View, Morayo Afolabi-Brown. She shared her thoughts about the winner of the gong for Best Actress and why she believes it was a deserving win.

"10 years of consistency is no joke. It shows that they've done the work. Kehinde Bankole winning the Best Actress gong was well deserved. She killed her role in Adire and no one would deny that."

She also talked about Breath of Life making a clean sweep of the awards. She said:

"I came to the show looking forward to Breath of Life and Jagun Jagun winning and they both won in different categories deservingly. AMVCA has shown that 10 years of consistency was no joke and they know what they're doing."
