Nollywood’s highest-grossing Movie of all time, 30 Days In Atlanta (produced by AY the Comedian) has been honoured as the Film of the Year by The Creative Industry Awards, and the Award was presented on the same Weekend the Movie grossed N140million in the Cinemas.
AY couldn’t attend the Awards because he was booked in Akure, Ondo State as the Master of Ceremony of a High-Profile wedding reception. This is how he reacted to the News of his Awards.
“Winning three Categories at The Creative Industry Awards is a fulfilling milestone for us especially because these new set of awards come just days to the Accra Premiere of 30 Days In Atlanta. We are overwhelmingly grateful to the organisers of the Awards for honouring Creative Entrepreneurs in Nigeria since 2012.
“Now, you will notice that I keep saying ‘we’ all through. That’s because the rising success of 30 Days in Atlanta couldn’t have been just one Ayo Makun’s effort.
“We had the shine of a gifted Cast & Crew. We had a spread of meticulous Silverbird Film Distribution. We had the support of our Super Fans. We had the view of excited Cinema lovers. We had the love of those who voted us the best to win the Awards. And above all, we had Grace – the Grace of God almighty who keeps crowning our cross-culture, romantic-comedy effort with record-breaking and award-winning success.”
