It’s no longer news that the billionaire’s daughter, Temi Otedola, made a big impression on her acting debut in Kunle Afolayan’s film “Citation.” But what’s causing a stir in some sections of the film industry is that it garnered a nomination for “Newcomer of the Year” award at the 2020 Best of Nollywood (BON) awards that were recently released.
According to those who criticized his nomination, the film was released less than a month ago. They argued that it would generally take a year after release to get a nomination.
This line of argument hinted that the father’s influence or popularity may have come into play.
It was something of a bitter battle between some filmmakers, with some believing that their first feat deserves a spot on the nomination list.
Yet an innocent viewer calling himself @folawealth on Twitter seemed to have nipped the fight in the bud with his own innocent, honest, and secular assessment of Temi’s debut in the fantasy realm.
He writes: “Temi Otedola’s acting career will be better than DJ Cuppy’s musical career.”
And the sister, DJ Cuppy, responds: “Amen.”
Temi Otedola plays the lead role in “Citation” as a brilliant student in Nigeria who stands up to the academic system when she denounced a popular professor who tried to rape her.
