The media personality wrote: “For the actress (atink it was Ruth Kadiri because there are so many ‘actresses’ now) who didn’t get recognised this year. Remember that last year there was no platform to even be recognised so instead of being bitter, be better now there is a platform and maybe next year will be your year or maybe not,.⁣
