Niyi Akinmolayan, a Nigerian film maker has taken to social media to ask celebrities to stop thanking God at award ceremonies saying, it’s humans who are involved in it and not God. he wrote this on his instagram page shortly after the 2017 AMVCA.
"Nigerians and their obsession with "thanking God" at award ceremonies. That's a great platform to reach a lot of people and say really important stuff. Why do you think thanking and giving glory to god is the most important thing you can say at an award show determined by votes and human judges. Sigh! Which one is "it can only be God". It's a company recognizing great talent and largely protecting their interests too. It's not god!!!"
