"Being nominated is a win" - Omowunmi Dada

Movie star Omowunmu Dada recently spoke to Legit.ng about her lose at the AMVCA to Kehinde Bankole and this was what she said:

"It is humbling that my talent and craft was recognised in a sea of other talented people. That in itself is a big win for me. Being an actor and filmmaking generally is very tough and challenging that fact that a prestigious award such as the AMVCA recognises me in a lead role is such a beautiful and fulfilling. I have won the AMVCA before but in a supporting role. This is the next level. Just getting nominated is a huge win."
