Adesola Omidina, a son of the late veteran Nigerian comic actor, Baba Suwe, has apologised to the members of Theatre Arts And Motion Pictures Practitioners Association Of Nigeria; and Nigerians over his comments after his father died yesterday.
The young man who is also an actor, in a video that has gone viral, showed his father’s corpse while claiming that friends and colleagues of the late actor abandoned him in his time of need.
While retracting his statement, the Omidina via his Instagram page wrote, “As the son of the veteran actor late Babatunde Omidina ‘Baba Suwe’ I am genuinely issuing this statement to denounce and condemn the video(s) about Baba Suwe’s death that has been wrongly posted.
“The Nollywood, TAMPAN, the government, Prophets, family and fans have been supportive in their own ways. I tender an apology to all the groups, people and families affected! Again, please disregard any inappropriate ‘video’ circulating social media.”
