Adesola Omidina, a son of the late veteran Nigerian comic actor Baba Suwe, has apologised to the members of Theatre Arts And Motion Pictures Practitioners Association Of Nigeria; and Nigerians.
Adesola tendered the apology over his comments after his father died yesterday.
The young man, in a video that went viral, showed his father’s corpse and claimed that he was abandoned by friends and colleagues in his time of need.
Adesola, however, asked for the forgiveness of everyone affected by the video.
“As the son of the veteran actor late Babatunde Omidina ‘Baba Suwe’ I am genuinely issuing this statement to denounce and condemn the video(s) about Baba Suwe’s death that has been wrongly posted,” he stated on Instagram.
“The Nollywood, TAMPAN, the government, Prophets, family, and fans have been supportive in their own ways. I tender an apology to all the groups, people and families affected! Again, please disregard any inappropriate ‘video’ circulating social media.”
