Baba Suwe battles for life at LUTH

Babatunde Omidina popularly known as ‘Baba Suwe’ has been admitted at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, in Idi Araba, Lagos.

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Bolaji Amusan, the National President, Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, disclosed this on Friday in Lagos.

Amusan popularly known as ‘Mr Latin’ as his stage name, said that the development was as a result of the approval of the association’s appeal to the Federal Government to foot the medical bill of Baba Suwe.

He said the ailing veteran comedian who was alleged to be suffering from an unknown sickness had been promised a first class treatment by the Federal Government at LUTH.

Amusan said that the Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole, had made arrangements for the comedian to be treated while the Federal Government will foot the medical bills.

“Myself and other association members have just taken Baba Suwe to LUTH from his residence.

‘‘I want to appreciate the minister for this gesture, we are happy that our colleague will be back on his feet after a comprehensive treatment. He is receiving first class treatment and we feel so honoured.

‘‘I also thank the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for his generosity, having donated N1m toward Baba Suwe’s treatment.

“I also thank everyone who had made donations toward our appeal for him, we can’t appreciate them enough. As the new president of the association, the welfare of my members is paramount on my mind which I have determined to improve within my four years’ tenure,” he said.

Some of his colleagues in the industry had made generous donations coupled with the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Osinbajo who donated N1m. The comedian began his acting career in 1972 but came into limelight after he featured in a movie titled” Iru Esin”, a film produced by Olaiya Igwe in 1977 and had produced several Nigerian movies.

Rapists should be hanged – Foluke Daramola-Salako

Popular actress and producer, Foluke Daramola, took a bold move some years back when she revealed in an interview that she was raped at a young age.

And according to the actress, the horrible experience has largely influenced how she has raised her 13-year-old daughter.

“I always enlighten my daughter about how some men can be when it comes to sex. Even when I am not around her, she always cautions men when they try to touch her in a way she is not comfortable with.  She tells me when she feels harassed by a man. She is out of the country at the moment, and people always call me to ask me how I trained her.

“In my days as a young woman, I couldn’t discuss sex with my mum; even till now, I still cannot do that because of the orientation I had as a young girl. If my daughter should get deflowered today, she will tell me because we are friends. I started discussing sex education with my daughter when she was six; I didn’t feel it was too early because she had a rapid growth.

“I was raped by my tenant because he thought I was older than my actual age. I am comfortable with my daughter being around men because I have educated her,” she said.

Noting that rapists should not be spared, Daramola called for capital punishment for offenders.

“I believe the government should pass a law against rape; rapists should be killed when they are caught. I don’t call myself a rape victim, but a rape victor.  Rape victims become a shadow of themselves; they have no form of self-esteem, some of them even take their lives. When it happened to me, I thank God I had friends who helped me recover fast.

“When I came out to say it, people were shocked, but I am happy that after my interview, people started coming out to talk about their experience. It has been happening; it is just that people don’t talk about it.”
