“I have never won any of the serious awards in Nigeria” – Actor, Deyemi Okanlawon says (VIDEO)


Popular Nigerian actor and filmmaker, Deyemi Okanlawon shared in a recent interview, that he has never won any important award recognition in Nigeria.

In an interview with HipTV, the actor revealed he has been in the entertainment industry for a very long time but he is not the kind of person to question why he hasn’t won the award.

According to Deyemi, he is familiar with motivating himself by recognizing his achievement and congratulating himself by looking into his mirror. He noted that he has being doing for a very long time.

The actor mentioned if validation or recognition comes from anywhere in the entertainment industry, he accepts it. He had to learn to take compliments instead of deflecting it, not receiving important award in the industry shouldn’t define you.

He also added his presence should validate an award and not the award validating his presence. He acknowledged himself for doing a good job in the industry citing the popular phrase of skitmaker, Mr. Macaroni “You are doing well”

Internet users have also commended the actor for his dynamism in the entertainment industry.
