Iconic actor Oludotun Baiyewun Jacobs was recently presented with an Icon award by the leadership of the Audio-Visual Rights Society of Nigeria (AVRS), the sole government-licensed collective management organization for audio-visual content.
Chairman of the AVRS Mahmood Ali-Balogun who presented the award at a brief presentation ceremony held at the Glover Memorial Hall in Lagos, on August 3, 2022, said the Octogenarian actor deserved the award for his meritorious contribution to the development and growth of the audio-visual industry in Nigeria and for fostering the finest ideals of the acting profession.
