Ebun Oloyede, an actor better known as Olaiya Igwe, went stark naked to pray for the victory of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in a campaign stunt.


The actor shared a video of himself unclad on a beach via his Instagram page on Friday.

In the video, Olaiya Igwe is seen praying intensively to his maker that Tinubu wins the February 2023 election.

He also beseeched that the candidate’s vote should be as much as the water of the ocean.


“God, I’m calling on you because of Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” the controversial actor yelled in Yoruba.

“Let him win the forthcoming election, get him to the post. I internationally came to the beach to beseech you (God), the most merciful. Let Tinubu’s vote be as much as the water of the ocean. Don’t put us (APC) to shame.”

In his caption, Olaiya Igwe said Tinubu is the best candidate because he “reflects our values and highest ideals”.


The actor further urged Nigerians to support Tinubu in order to restore the country.

“It is my pleasure to support a candidate who truly reflects our values and highest ideals. There is one candidate in this election who will protect that dream,” he added.

“One leader who will fight hard to keep the promise of Nigeria for the next generation. And that’s why we must stand up and make Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Jagaban the next president of Nigeria.”

Olaiya Igwe’s video has, however, stirred mixed reactions on social media.


His stunt comes a few days after Kcee, the singer, and Rahama Sadau, the actress, endorsed Tinubu.
