Taiwo Hassan ‘Ogogo’ Explains Why He Fought With A Fan On The Street
According to the actor, he wants to put the message out clearly before blogs will come around and change the story.
He was seen in a viral video in a serious scuffle with an unidentified man surrounded by a crowd of people before entering his car and zooming off.
Pressed to share his side of the story to avoid misinterpretation by bloggers, the actor shared videos of the incident on his Instagram page, explaining what prompted the brawl.
He said: “I was in Ilaro, my own home town, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals. ‘We watch your movie’, ‘give up money, ‘We watched you all through our childhood’…All these as an actor we hear everyday.
“I offered all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my Agbada and demanded for an amount I can’t pay. I asked him to leave me, he said, ‘Do your worse’. The rest is story.”
Seizing the opportunity, the 62-year-old entertainer reminded fans that he was once a boxer while he advised them to appreciate whatever they are given benevolently by celebrities without exhibiting an entitlement attitude.
“Do you pay anyone for doing your job? No. It’s our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer, always a boxer,” he added.
