It was just for promotion purpose: Eniola Ajao cries out

The Nigerian Nollywood filmmaker and actress, Eniola Ajao has addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding the ‘Best Dressed Female’ award given to crossdresser, Bobrisky at the premiere of her movie, ‘Ajakaju.’

It had earlier  been reported that Bobrisky was presented with the award and given a cheque of N1 million at the premiere of the new movie.

However, in an interview with Arise TV,  Eniola Ajao described the award given to Bobrisky as a charade, claiming it was nothing serious.

However, despite her explanations, her movie premiere has continued to suffer backlash on social media

Consequently, she took to her Instagram  page to post a video message where she once again denied awarding an award to Bobrisky.

In the now-viral clip, the thespian pleaded with Nigerians to support her by going to the cinema to watch her movie, stressing that she would go bankrupt if her movie is cancelled because of Bobrisky’s saga.

She further explained that the ‘Best Dressed Female’ award given to Bobrisky was just for promotion purposes. In her words: “that the award was just to make people talk about the movie”.

Speaking on her verified social media page, Eniola Ajao said: “Tell everybody to go out for me, don’t let me be in debt, I don’t have anything. All I had was what I put into this project. Please support me in the name of God, I don’t come out to do clout or stunt. It’s because of this film, I was thinking of how I will sell the film, so I used Bobrisky.”

I don’t want to dwell too much on that, I plead with Nigerians in the name of God, help me go out. This is a film that the whole industry came out to watch and they gave good reviews. It’s a film that I can be boastful about and walk with my heads up.
