I’m looking forward to Oscar nomination — Kehinde Bankole


Actress, Kehinde Bankole, who recently clinched the Best Lead Actress Award at the 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for her role in the movie, ‘Adire’, has expressed her desire to get an Academy Awards (popularly known as the Oscars).


She told Saturday Beats, “I will like an Oscar nomination. Every actor should actually want to get international exposure and opportunities. In Africa, obviously, we are really working hard. If we can get more international recognition, why not? We are gradually getting there on our own though.”


On why she appreciated her colleagues, such as Yvonne Jegede, Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, who also starred in the movie, the actress said, “I appreciated my other colleagues, such as Yvonne Jegede, Funlola Aofiyebi Raimi and Ifeanyi Kalu, who starred in the movie, because it was a team work, and without the story, everyone cannot perform.”
