In the past 48 hours, the issue of Babatunde Omidina (Baba Suwe’s) ill health has become one of the most discussed subject matters in the Nigerian movie sector.
TheNewsGuru, TNG had reported that the popular comic actor’s health is waning. The respected comedian is currently suffering from chronic diabetes.
Popular actor, Bolaji Amusan a.k.a Mr Latin has reacted to the viral claims that the Yoruba sector of Nollywood has abandoned Baba Suwe.
Mr Latin who also doubles as the National President of the Theatre Arts and Motions Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, said the association has been taking care of Baba Suwe’s medical bills since 2017.
Mr Latin made this known in Abeokuta on Monday, February 18, 2019.
In his words:” I have just instructed the Lagos State executive of the association to check on him (Baba Suwe) to ascertain his health progress.
“I can tell you that we have not abandoned Baba Suwe, as well as any of our members, as being speculated in some quarters by mischief-makers.”
TheNewsGuru reports that back in 2016, Baba Suwe had debunked reports of ill health when Yomi Fabiyi declared on Instagram that his health is waning.
In an interview with a news medium, Baba Suwe said:”My health is perfectly fine, I don’t want anybody to worry about me,” he said. Adding, “a lot of people have been calling me about the issue all day what Yomi put out is a very old story. I don’t want to talk about the issue any more please ignore it.”
