The actress won the ‘Best Actress in a Comedy’ for her role in the hit series “Selina” at the 9th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) held in Lagos on Saturday night, May 20.
Following her win, the actress, who has consistently acknowledged her father’s significant contribution to her acting career, made a heartfelt gesture by visiting her father’s house to present her AMVCA plaque to him.
Taking to her social media pages, she shared a video of herself driving to her father’s house for the special moment.
In her caption, she described him as her biggest supporter and backbone, and recounted how he took her to her first audition and waited for six hours until she was done.
“I went back home to give the award to my dad. He’s my biggest supporter, my rock, my backbone. My Father. Though absent, I knew exactly where he would be. (He loves chilling with the boys in the hood when he’s less busy on Sundays). My dad took me to my first audition and waited for six hours until I was done.
My hood produced all the characters that have made you guys laugh. From Iya Barakat to Todowede to Selina. I’ve had to mimic someone from the hood to give those characters life. My name is Bimbo Ademoye, Ademoye Adekunle’s daughter, Ari’s aunty, and I’m from Ebute Meta. Born and bred in the hood. There are so many people I’d love to appreciate. I’m prepping my speech, guys,” she wrote.
