In this particular nomination, her fellow nominees are Ini Edo, OC Ukeje, Ivie Okujaye, Gideon Okeke, Ramman Hassan, Kabirah Mojisola Kafidipe, and Lala Akindoju. So take your pick who the Nollywood old desperate cargos are in this case, because Tonto clearly expects to win if they don’t rig the votes.
