Kehinde Bankole, a Nigerian actress, was honored with the Best Lead Actress Award at the 10th Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for her outstanding performance in the film ‘Adire’.

She has now openly expressed her aspiration to receive an Academy Award, also known as the Oscars.

She told Saturday Beats:

“I will like an Oscar nomination. Every actor should actually want to get international exposure and opportunities. In Africa, obviously, we are really working hard. If we can get more international recognition, why not? We are gradually getting there on our own though.”

Bankole also stated that she felt grateful winning the ‘Best Lead Actress’ award, disclosing that it is a responsibility bestowed on her to keep doing more.

On why she appreciated her colleagues, such as Yvonne Jegede, Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, who also starred in the movie, the actress said:

“I appreciated my other colleagues, such as Yvonne Jegede, Funlola Aofiyebi Raimi and Ifeanyi Kalu, who starred in the movie, because it was a team work, and without the story, everyone cannot perform.
