Lilian Afegbai, who cried on stage while receiving recently at Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards, has explained the reason for that outburst of emotions.
Recall that Afegbai on the AMVCA platform forgot her speech after receiving her award for Best Indigenous Movie (Igbo), and ever since, many, including her friends, co actors didn’t stop mocking her.
But reacting to the incidence, the actress made a video on her YouTube channel, explaining why she cried and forgot her speech.
She said, “As at the time I shot my last YouTube video, I had no idea I would be winning the AMVCA. A lot of my friends have been at me for my speech moment at the AMVCA”.
She continued, “Enough of it because you’ll never know how it feels until you walk up on that stage and millions of thoughts start flooding through your head and you start saying ‘Ah baba God my dress, my speech, oh I cannot fall o’.
“Then all of a sudden you go up the stage and you see a sea of heads and you go blank. You can’t even express yourself, you’re overwhelmed.
“I just want to thank God, my publicist and my friends. I want to thank everybody that supported my movie, ‘Bound’.
“Thank you so much, God bless you, thank you for riding with me, I love you all so much”, said the Nollywood movie producer/actress, blogger and ex Big Brother Africa housemate.
