Creatives shouldn’t be motivated by Awards only – Actor Jidekene

Actor Jidekene claims that awards shouldn’t be the only motivation for creativesAwards shouldn’t be the only motivation for creatives – Actor Jidekene

He cites that after he was snubbed by the organizers of the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).

In a recent interview with Arise TV, Jidekene was questioned about the AMVCA nominations and whether he felt furious about the snub.

“What do you think about the nominations for AMVCA? Where you a bit upset about the snub?”

Sharing his perspective, Jidekene replied:

“Well, experience teaches you that everytime there is always going to be a generational shift. Sometimes, the people who do these awards have targets. It could be, ‘Let’s make sure we bring on new people or let’s make sure the veterans know that we see them.’ It could also be, ‘Last year we went that way, this year let’s go this way.’ I don’t know what they think about when they make the selections that they make. But I do believe that collectively, there would always be news about whatever selections that they made.

“So my advice would be, it is a win win for everybody. Whatever your motivations are, it shouldn’t be limited to awards because at the end of the day, if you made good films or you are getting better roles than you did last year, you are winning. And our real focus is to feed the Nigerian film market. Not necessarily about who is where or who is not where.”
