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

Published

on

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 drugs 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.

“I was in shock and had to make a short video and because of the shock, I didn’t know what I was doing at that moment, so I posted it on my WhatsApp status and from there it went viral.

“I was surprised that within five minutes, the video had gone viral. What I have to say is that I’m sorry; I appeal to family members that I never meant it that way because I’m still young, but the shock affected me.”

The Governor of the Lagos State chapter of the Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria, Olufunmilayo Oyewunmi, while also speaking at the residence of the deceased on Tuesday, described him as a hero.

The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in a statement, described Baba Suwe as a man who used his gift to advance the course of mankind.

He noted that his death had left a vacuum in the entertainment industry.

Meanwhile, another son of the deceased, Adesola Omidina, has stated that the actor will be buried on Thursday at his house in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Some fans want to have sex with me for money -Peju Johnson

Peju Johnson

Nollywood actress, Peju Johnson is eager to settle down as soon as possible.

She told Saturday Sun that getting married and starting a family is one of her priorities next year. “For 2022, I’m looking forward to a better life and future. I want to be able to achieve my dreams. Somebody’s son is finding me; I am going to settle down and have my own family. I really can’t wait to see that happening. I pray my wedding bells ring anytime soon, because I really want it.

However, I am not getting any pressure from home to get married. In fact, my mum is a very loving and understanding woman. She won’t force or rush me into taking a wrong decision, because she knows everything happens at the right time, and God’s time is the best. Although, she does ask once in a while, she never pressurises me to bring a man home,” Ms Johnson says.

Giving hints on her kind of man, the actress states: “My man must be loving; tall, dark, caring, romantic and respectful. Most importantly, he must be God fearing, because if a man fears God, the rest is simple. Nowadays, men don’t fear themselves not to talk of God. I can reject a serious suitor if he doesn’t have respect for me or for other people.

I don’t like men that are disrespectful. Some of my fans are asking for my price tag. They want me to have sex with them for money, while some are sending me their dick pictures. Obviously, they are not my fans. I always feel embarrassed seeing all those things in my inbox. I can’t deal with such kind of men.”
