And while some celebrities who won awards at the event were expected (e.g. Funke Akindele walking home with the Best Comedy Series), others were a tad surprising.

Like when Funke Akindele-Bello won Best TV Show for Jenifa’s Diary. Somkele Idhalama’s trailblazer win wasn’t a surprise. The budding actress has continued to wow both critics and fans alike with each performance. She went home with a car from GAC motors.
