Adekunle Adejuyigbe aka Nodash has expressed delight after his film, 'The Delivery Boy' grabbed 12 nominations at 2019 AMAA.

In a tweet, the filmmaker appreciated the organisers for the nomination saying it is such a great time for him.

Nodash also revealed that the nomination is coming barely a week after he got a message from the Nigerian Oscars selection committee saying his film, ‘The Delivery Boy’ was being considered for nomination at the 2020 Oscars.

Adekunle ‘Nodash’ Adejuyigbe’s ‘The Delivery Boy’ picked up 12 nominations including Best Actress, Best Achievement in Production Design, Best Achievement in Visual Effects, Best Achievement in Sound, Best Achievement in Cinematography, Best Achievement in Editing, Best Achievement in Screenplay, Best Nigerian Film, Best Young/Promising Actor, Best Director-First Feature Film, Best Director, and Best Film.

Since its release in 2018, the film has won "The Best Nigerian Film Award" at the African International Film Festival and "Best Supporting Actor" at the Real-Time International Film Festival (RTF).

'The Delivery Boy’ tells the story of Amir, a teenage orphan boy, who runs into a young girl while trying to escape a mob. She is a prostitute with an agenda and he has a bomb vest under his dress. They are both running out of time and they soon realise they need each other to achieve their goals.

Before the night ends, they will have to contend with each other, Amir’s group, the knowledge of the terrible secrets that made them who they are, and the consequences of living in a society that doesn’t care. Their journey takes them through the underbelly of the city exposing the hidden backside of the African Society and its dangerous culture of silence in the presence of evil.
