The coalition for a better Nigeria has called on well-meaning Nigerians to support Ojo Arowosafe, the Yoruba actor better known as Fadeyi Oloro, towards salvaging his ailing health.
According to NAN, Bamiji Awa, the coalition’s national coordinator, addressed the issue in a statement on Tuesday.
He said the veteran actor has battled with his failing health for years and is in “dire” need of financial support.
Awa, who is also the president-general for the Grand Council of Yoruba Youths, said the ailing veteran actor also needs assistance from spirited individuals and corporate organisations.
He said the actor has conducted a series of tests to ascertain the nature of his ailment but to no avail.
According to him, Arowosafe has sold his properties while moving from one hospital to another in search of a cure.
“Our dear Super Nollywood Actor, Chief Ojo Arowosafe, popularly known as Fadeyi Oloro is in dire need of the generous support of kind-hearted Nigerians concerning his failing health,” Awa said.
“We brought this into public knowledge after years of his health crisis which is certainly beyond the control of his immediate family.”
The ace actor, who hails from Igbra-Odo in Ekiti, has featured in hundreds of Yoruba movies like ‘Alagbara Ilu’, ‘Jagun Ina’, ‘Inu Bibi’, ‘IJA Abija’, ‘Osimi Ika’, ‘Adani Lori’, ‘Fitu Fona’, ‘Ruke Rudo’, ‘Bola Ele’, and ‘Ade Ogun’ among others.
The Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) had recently announced an endowment fund to cater to the wellbeing of its members.
Bolaji Amusan, TAMPAN president, had said the era of going on social media to seek assistance for members in need is over, adding that the fund will cater to ailing members.
