Popular Nollywood Yoruba actor, Odunlade Adekola who has been in a paternity mess of recent has responded to social media and blog stories conveying the ‘untrue’ news.
According to Odunlade, his over two decades experience in the movie industry won’t allow criticisms and rumours weigh him down. It’d be recalled how the actor made trending stories on blogs and news platform for allegedly involving himself with actress, Bukola Adeeyo and fathering her son.. The Abeokuta-raised actor was interviewed by Samuel Abulude of LeadershipNG, and here is what he has to say on scandals flying around the media about him.
What is your take on scandals the media involve you in?
Some elements have hijacked the social media for their own mischievous gains. People just sit down and cook up stories simply because they want traffic, they want to make money. I think Nigerians need to get it right. It is not everything that is on social media that is factual. An entertainer who knows his craft should not be carried away with social media.
This is because, before social media, we have been in this industry. It is not social media that will bring us down. I have been in the industry for more than twenty years. So social media cannot bring me down.
