Nigeria, (AN24) – Popular Yoruba actor, Odunlade Adekola, has quashed rumours in some quarters that he patronizes witch doctors in order to get famous, adding that he will never and had never been involved in such act.
The Ogun state born actor and Glo ambassador made this statement during an interview with Punch newspaper.
According to him, “Some people say that I used voodoo or metaphysical powers to be successful. I hear when they say such but I tell everyone that I can never do such. During the graduation of my students last year, I addressed this issue because it was during that time people were peddling rumours of my demise.
“When the rumour of my death hit town, some people said that I did ‘jazz’ to be successful. That was why during the graduation of my students last year, I said it in public that if I had ever thought of doing ‘jazz’ to succeed God should make me lose everything I had ever worked for.
“I never knew I would be successful as an actor; my belief has always been that God should elevate me in my endeavours. I always prayed that God should make me a successful person.
“I hear these comments but they do not move me at all. I am a writer, director, producer and an actor. It is normal for people to talk but it has never upset me,” Odunlade opined.
