Yesterday, news hit the internet that popular comic Yoruba actor, Babatunde Omidina popualarly known as Baba Suwe is down with chronic diabetes.
It was also reported by some media outlets that the ailing screen star has been abandoned by colleagues and the film industry but the National President of the Theatre Arts and Motions Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria, (TAMPAN), Mr Latin has reacted to this.
In his reaction, Mr Latin who is also an actor himself denied the rumors that the actor has been abandoned. According to him, the medical bills of the actor is something the association has been taking care of since 2017. He said,
“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 him, as well as any of our members, as being speculated in some quarters by mischief-makers.”
It would be recalled that back in 2011, the 60-year-old Baba Suwe was alleged of cocaine trafficking by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), an allegation that was described as false and defamatory by the ruling of the Lagos High Court of Law.
