Awards And Nominations
Jinmi Abduls during an interview when asked if he is yet to received any awards gave the following reply;
Yes been nominated for a few but you know how it is here in Nigeria . A lot of corruption. Every award I’ve been nominated for ,the organizers would approach you and ask you for some money to win the award and honestly , I don’t partake in such. I want to win awards for my sweat and work not for my money
