Veteran Nollywood actor, Olaiya Igwe has broken his silence following his unclad video that went viral online and explained his reasons.
The actor went to the beach naked to pray for the sucess of Bola Tinubu, APC’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election.
The video shocked a lot of people and many insulted Olaiya for going to such extreme lengths but the actor has explained his motivation.
A video posted to explain himself showed him having a telephone conversation with someone who from the look of things called him to chastise him about his actions.
Olaiya blasted the person by asking what they did for him when he was sick and dying.
According to the actor, the person ignored his calls when he was in the hospital and needed help but Remi Tinubu ran to his rescue and made sure he was fully treated.
In his words:
“Did you not hear I was sick some times back? How much did you send me? Were you not always ignoring my calls then?
The time I was sick, Remi called Ajala Jalingo to take me to Ikeja Teaching Hospital that they should take care of me and on the third day, she called and ask me if I have American visa and if I don’t have a visa, they should quickly arrange it for me.
So her husband will now come out for a position and I won’t support? I cannot be a bastard and support one unfortunate person now”
