“My dad never remained the same since his “matter with the NDLEA” – Late Baba Suwe’s son, Adebowale speaks



My father never recovered from NDLEA ordeal – Baba Suwe’s son

Adebowale, the son of a late comic actor, Babatunde Omidina, aka Baba Suwe, on Tuesday, said his father did not recover from what he suffered in the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency after he was accused of peddling dr¥gs in 2011, which turned out to be false.

The actor died on Monday at his house in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State after battling a sickness. He was aged 63.

Adebowale, in a viral video on Monday, accused family members and friends of neglecting the veteran actor while he battled the illness.


However, while speaking at the residence on Tuesday, he apologised for making the video, saying he did not mean to disrespect anyone.

Speaking on his father’s sickness, Adebowale said the illness started after the NDLEA ordeal.

He said, “My father was a lovely person. Whenever I showed him his videos, he would start laughing and sometimes burst into tears and ask if it was him and if he would ever act again and I would console and assure him that he would act again, just to make him happy.

“I can’t really say this was the cause of my father’s sickness, but since his matter with the NDLEA, my dad was not himself; he used to think about his wife and he used to think about us too because he still told me a few days ago that he was not sure if he would be with us for long and I told him that he would be with us.”

Narrating Baba Suwe’s last moments, Adebowale said he was in the gym on Monday when he was called that his father was not breathing well.

“I asked them to call a nurse to treat him and when I got home, I went to his room, talked to him; he was trying to talk to me, but he could not.

“He was taking his first drip when I got home and when he was taking the second drip, I went out to wash my kits. I was washing my kits when my mum came to tell me that my dad was dead. I had to ask her if she was joking because I just left him about five minutes ago; I rushed to his room and found out that he was dead.

Shan George Broke Silence As She Warns Actresses Not to Sleep With Directors And Producers



Shan George, a Nollywood actress, encouraged actresses not to give yourself over to a single director or producer behind the camera.


Shan George, an experienced actress, has spoken out against sleeping with directors and producers for a chance at glory.


“If I were to advise somebody coming into acting now. I would warn them not to surrender themselves to one director or producer somewhere behind the camera,”. The actress told Saturday Beats, You can’t sleep your way to the top. You’re going to screw yourself up when it comes time to demonstrate what you’re made of on camera. They will, in fact, dump you like a platter of hot potato.

“So, read your script regularly, attend rehearsals, and be prepared to play the roles you’ve been assigned.” I don’t believe all the bullshit about individuals sleeping their way to stardom. When I hear these things, I sometimes chuckle. How are you going to sleep your way to stardom? Where would you begin?. You’ll simply be sleeping around to get in front of the camera, but if you can’t deliver, they’ll just kick you out. In this field, you can’t sleep your way to the top.”
