Actress Efe Irele – I didn’t lobby for awards.

Actress Efe Irele won this year’s City People Movie Awards of Best Upcoming Actress and Best New Actress.

It was rumoured that she did not merit to win and the organizers were assumed to have only given awards to entertainers who were willing to pay.


Though, in an encounter with Sunday Scoop, Irele disparaged the claims that she might have paid for the two awards.

She said:

“If anyone says that I paid for an award, my best response is for them to see my body of works. Within three years, I have been seen in over 40 movies; so, my works speak for me. People will always say whatever they like, but I know who I am and I know I didn’t lobbied for the awards.”
The graduate of Bowen University, Iwo, stated that she didn’t know she will win two awards on the night. She added,
“The feeling was out of this world. When I was called on stage for the first award, I was surprised. In as much as I have been working hard, I didn’t know people were paying attention to me. As I speak to you, I still feel I have only done little as an actress.
“After receiving the first award, I was actually preparing to leave. But while I was being interviewed, I was called again. At first, I didn’t hear my name; it was when people started looking towards my direction and screaming my name that I knew I had won another award. I couldn’t hold back tears. The two awards have motivated me to want to do more.”
