Innocuous praise-singing in a bid to get something from the veteran Nollywood actor, Taiwo Hassan (popularly known as Ogogo) degenerated into an exchange of fisticuffs and of invectives.
The not-so-palatable incident happened in the actor’s hometown of Ilaro, Ogun State where the actor had gone to inspect one of his projects
Ogogo got into heated fights and arguments with the street urchins who demanded he pays a certain amount of money before they let him go.
In a video shared by Ogogo, he was seen confronting the touts in a very fierce encounter. Narrating his ordeal, he wrote via Instagram;
“Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth. Was in llaro, my own home town, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals.
“All these as an actor we hear every day I offer all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my agbada and demanded 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 is our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer always a boxer”
