AMVCA 2022: Award Organizers Step In To Rectify Issue Of Wrong Credit After Sound Editor Calls Out ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga’ Producers On Twitter

Omo Ghetto: The Saga

A sound editor, Kolade Morakinyo, has accused Nigerian movie-making couple Funke Akindele Bello and husband JJC Skillz of not crediting him for his input in their hit movie ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga’ (2020).

Morakinyo took to his Twitter handle (@morakkolad) to narrate what happened.

“ In October 2021, I was contacted by JJC Skillz/Funke Akindele to work on Omo Ghetto: The Saga. This project came to us super late so my team and I spent so many sleepless nights trying to deliver.

“ We finished the project, sent to the cinemas and got beautiful reviews about the sound production of the movie.

“3 days ago, the AMVCA announced its nominees and to my utter shock, my name wasn’t there. I discovered I’d been replaced with someone that I later learnt only did the film score (read as soundtrack)

Morakinyo said he wasn’t getting anything concrete from JJC Skilz, hence him having to come to Twitter to seek the help of the general public. It looks like that worked and he caught the attention of the organizers of the AMVCA.

Within 24 hours of Kolapo Morakinyo calling out Nollywood filmmakers Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz, the organizers of Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards have rectified the issue.

Reacting to the change, Morakinyo tweeted,

“Now I can confirm that my name has been added even though I am still not given the full credit.
Thanks to everyone who supported and retweeted for justice.
Never be scared to speak up.#HorribleBosses”
