Popular Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Okoro, was over the weekend adjudged Best Actress of the Year at the 2016 edition of City People Entertainment Awards in Nigeria.

“I was not officially informed or invited,” she said.

Yvonne's team also confirmed it never received any correspondent or official communiqué from the organisers informing them about their client's nomination.
