The ongoing controversy revolving around the Best of Nollywood (BON)' awards which was held on Thursday, 16 October, 2014, is far from over as some Nollywood practitioners have seen the alleged Governor's statement as an embarrassment. But veteran actress, Liz Benson, has a different opinion to that.

The actress cum evangelist, who was one of those given an honorary/special recognition award, says her colleagues should not feel insulted by what Governor Rotimi Amaechi said. Rather, they should try to develop themselves the more.

Making reference to the Holy Bible, the actress explained that the Holy Book says “whatever your hand findeth to do, do it well.” Noting that it is not about what people will say that matters. “Don't look at what men say, but what you know and what God says, whatever your hand findeth doing, do it well. It is the grace of God that has brought me this far.”

The practitioners are not only angry with host Governor Rotimi Amaechi for calling them products of circumstances, adding that many of them are in the acting scene because they couldn't find other jobs, but they are also unhappy at the 'mismanagement' of the event.
