In a moment of pure hilarity, actor Deyemi Okanlawon recreated the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock Oscar slap moment with the night’s host, IK Osakioduwa.
The actor, who was a nominee for ‘Best Actor in a Comedy,’ recreated the moment when IK was giving one of his famous AMVCA monologues.
The host talked about how Deyemi Okanlawon turned to real estate sales during the pandemic when Nollywood was shut down.
The latter screamed from his seat in the crowd “keep my name out of your mouth,” and tried walking up to the stage.

The two men, who planned the entire moment, had everyone in stitches with the recreation of the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock Oscar slap.
