One of the nominees of the supporting best actor category of the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, Rotimi Salami was told to go for spiritual cleansing if his role in the movie ‘Just Not Married’ didn’t get an award nomination.
Judith Audu, who is the producer of the movie that earned Rotimi a nomination, said she told the young actor to go and was his head in the river if he didn’t win an AMVCA nomination.
In an interview with NOLLYZONE, the actress cum producer expressed that “I remember I told him that if he doesn’t get a nomination, he should go and was his head washed in the river… so I was so excited when I saw that he was nominated, that alone did it for me…that made my year”.
Judith also explained that Rotimi played a character she liked the most in the movie. However, Rotimi has proven the he didn’t need to wash his head anywhere as that character of ‘Lati’ that he play has recently earned him the award at the Best of Nollywood Award in Abia state a few weeks ago. Judith added that, “It’s overwhelming. Starting from the BON Awards when we had nine nominations but went away with two: ‘Best Actress’ and ‘The Most-Promising Actor’; and then, as that wasn’t enough, we came back home and we got a spot on the AMVCA. We got a nod from the for ‘the best supporting actor’ which is really huge and personally i was really happy for it because Rotimi keyed himself on that role”.
