He, however, explained on his Instagram page that he was in a brawl with a tout who demanded money from him at a movie set even after giving him what he could afford.

He said, “Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and truth. Was in Ilaro my hometown, 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 offer all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my agbada and demanded for an amount I can’t pay. Asked him to leave me, he said “Do your worse” the rest is story. Please stop harassing actors or entertainers, 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”.
