The underlying nuance of the post has not gone unnoticed by some of her followers on twitter who assumed that the actress was indirectly referring to the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards when she mentioned competent jury.
Coincidentally, both awards held on Saturday, March 14, 2020, another point that suggests Kate might be referring to AMVCA 2020.
The film was jointly directed by Nollywood Actress and Producer, Ego Boyo and South-African-based Nigerian director and actor Akin Omotoso.
‘The Ghost and The House of Truth’is an emotional, thought-provoking and powerfully real drama that takes on socio-cultural issues, highlighting society’s basic requirement for more effective law enforcement and judicial, profiling and databases for citizens. It’s a simple but unforgettable story.
The film features Kate Henshaw alongside other Nollywood greats Susan Wokoma, Fabian Oloyede, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Uzo Ozimkpa, Toyin Oshinaike, Seun Ajayi, Tope Tedela, Chioma ‘Chigurl’ Omeruah, Keira Heiwatch, Oludara Egerton, and Princess Shyngle.
