Lateef Adedimeji, an actor performing in Nollywood, is overjoyed to have won an international award alongside Etinosa Idemudia and Ramsey Nouah. He was in good company.
At the most recent HAPA award ceremony, the honor of “best actor” went to Lateef for his performance in the leading role of the film Ayinla.
Awarded “Best African Male Actor” by the United States of America, Lateef was the recipient of this honor.
The Nollywood and African Prestigious Awards recognize and celebrate exceptional achievement in the arts across a variety of categories.
Taking to his Instagram page, Lateef wrote, “Best Actor in a film! AYINLA! Thank you! I was honored last night ta a private dinner with the Founder & CEO/Executive Producer, Hollywood and African Prestigious Awards, Ms Tina Weisinger with my boss @ramseynouah and beautiful @etinosaofficial in the filming industry as the Best Africa Male Actor from United States of America. Thank you @hapawards, thank you babami @tkelani, thank you my ever gallant @jadeosiberu”.
Lateef Adedimeji, who played the role of the National head of the All Progressive Congress Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the film ‘Last Man Standing,’ admitted to The9jafresh that he was prepared for criticism while he was portraying the character in the movie.
During an interview with Saturday Beats, Lateef Adedimeji predicted that there would be a great deal of misunderstanding, particularly in light of the recent events that have transpired in the run-up to the 2023 election.
However, because he was merely performing his job, he was prepared for anything that might happen because he was acting in accordance with his duties.
According to Lateef Adedimji, at first it appeared as though he was uninterested in the role because politics can be intimidating and Tinubu is more than a simple politician.
On the other hand, he reasoned that taking on the part would be one of the defining moments in his career and would push him to the limits of his acting ability.
