Nollywood actress, Clarion Chukwurah has emerged the best actress in Africa for winning the ‘best actress in a leading role’ award at the just concluded 2014 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
While receiving her award, the veteran actress dedicated it to Nigeria saying, “I dedicate this award to my country Nigeria because the role I played in Apaye was the role of a woman who after and despite all odds, overcame and became triumphant, so I dedicate this award to Nigeria…”
