The actress was nominated with actresses from other African countries who were also exceptional in their roles as supporting actress but the award was given to Angelique Kidjo. Although the movie that got her nominated was by Nigerian filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, the actress is not a Nigerian.
This is the second time Somkele Idhalama will be losing an award to her counterparts. The first had been at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award (AMVCA) 2017, but she had gone home as the receiver of the Trail Blazer award of a car. This time, Somkele had nothing to be compensated with.
In the two years, she has spent in Nollywood, the actress has been nominated seven times and has won 5 awards out of it all.
