Adesola Omidina, a son of the late veteran Nigerian comic actor, Baba Suwe, has apologised to members of Theatre Arts And Motion Pictures Practitioners Association Of Nigeria (TAMPAN), actors, and Nigerians over his comments after his father died yesterday.
Shortly after his father’s death, Adesola shared a video showing the corpse of his father and accused TAMPAN and colleagues of abandoning him while he was sick.
He, however, has retracted his comment as he apologised to TAMPAN in a post on his Instagram page.
He wrote, “As the son of the veteran actor late Babatunde Omidina ‘Baba Suwe’ I am genuinely issuing this statement to denounce and condemn the videos made about Baba Suwe’s death that has been wrongly posted.”
He stated that Nollywood, the government, and TAMPAN have been supportive in many ways.
“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,” the statement reads.
Baba Suwe, the Yoruba comic legend died on Monday after a long battle with an undisclosed illness.
