Nollywood Stars Condemn Baba Suwe’s Shameful Act, News Goes International
The news of the arrest of Nollywood actor, Babatunde Omidina aka Baba Suwe is generating a lot bad comment from fellow actors and actresses who described his action as shameful and unbecoming of someone of his status.
Immediately the news broke out, popular Nollywood stars were contacted for comments about the report and none of them seems happy about it.
Here is their comments:
BabaJide Kosoko: “Are you sure it is true? If it is, it is madness. It is madness I repeat. I can hardly believe the story. What else does he want in life? This is madness, complete madness I say.”
Sunday Omobolanle aka Pappy Luwe: “But I can’t believe that what I am hearing is true. A friend who is in London spoke with me on phone and said that he saw the story in the on-line edition of P.M.NEWS. Sorry I will speak with you later.”
Tunji Bamishigbin: “If it is true that Baba Suwe is involved in drug peddling, then he does not deserve the position and respect the Nigerian society has accorded him.It is also a big shame and it is very disappointing because the society sees us as the mirror through which they watch themselves and if we are found where we are not supposed to be, it is very shameful.”
Remi Oshodi: “Whoever is not satisfied with whatever he or she has will end up where he is not supposed to be. We are the mirror through which the society mirrors itself and as parents we should live by example. It is a big disgrace to us all.”
Femi Brainard: “This shameful act must be stopped because Wunmi was the first victim, and because she was pardoned does not mean that Baba Suwe will go scot free. What he has done is a slap on us and the entire movie industry. This time around he must be made to face the music.”
Hon. Rotimi Makinde: “It is a rude shock. “It’s indeed a disgrace to many of us and the industry I so cherish. I reserve further comments for now until I get details.”
Meanwhile, the news has gone international on Fox News and BBC.
