Taiwo Hassan has reacted to a video of him fighting a man on the streets of Ilaro, Ogun state.


In a now-viral video, the Nigerian actor was seen fighting a man in the midst of a crowd before driving away.

Sharing videos of the incident on Friday, the 62-year-old better known as “Ogogo” explained the altercation.

He said a man who claimed to be a fan approached him alongside some others demanding money.


Hassan said he offered them what he could afford after which the man seized him by his outfit. The actor said the fight broke out after the man refused to let go of him.

“Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth,” the actor wrote.

“I was in Ilaro, my own hometown, for an inspection of a project.


“Some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals.

“[They said] ‘We watch your movie. Give up money. We watched you all through our childhood’.

“I offered all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my Agbada and demanded an amount I can’t pay.

“I asked him to leave me, he said, ‘Do your worse’. The rest is story.”


Hassan warned his fans to desist from harassing celebrities for money.

“Do you pay anyone for doing your job? No,” the actor added.

“It’s our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer, always a boxer.”
