At the 2020 AMVCA held on Saturday, 14th March, Jide-Kene Achufusi popularly called Swanky JKA went home with the trailblazer award.


The nominees for this award are not disclosed before the event. However, it is a very important category because of what it represents. The award is to reward an upcoming actor or actress who is doing well in the industry.


For Swanky JKA playing the role of Nnamdi Okeke in Living In Bondage: Breaking Free was the big break he needed. It was all that he needed to impress both the AMVCA judges and fans as well.


He got into character and interpreted the role brilliantly knowing that this was a platform he needs in Nollywood. If you have watched Living In Bondage sequel, you would agree that no newbie in the film industry would have done a better job.

Big congratulations to Swanky  JKA and all other awardees at the 2020 AMVCA.
