Olanrewaju, the movie producer son of veteran actor, Moses Adejumo, otherwise called Baba Sala, has said apart from being in agood health, his father recently came to Lagos to receive an award.
There were concerns over the health of the gifted Yoruba comedian sometime in August this year.
Olanrewaju, in a telephone chat on Thursday, said, ‘‘Last week, he was given a ‘Living Legend Award’ by the Lagos-based Naija Fm. The organisers also lodged him in a reputable hotel for two days. He came with his wife and one of my younger brothers. He was very happy with the happy and did not hide his feelings about the done honour done him by the radio station.’’
According to Olanrewaju, his father also used the opportunity to record a promo for his latest film, Mr. Padua in South Africa’ billed for screening next week in Lagos.
He also added that the film, shot in South Africa, echoes good quality in terms of cast and production.
‘‘It was a good promo for my latest film because my father used the opportunity to drum support for it and also appreciated Nigerians for standing by him during his ill-health. In fact, he stated in the production that he now eats iyan (pounded yam) and amala (yam flour) to show that he is better now. The promo will start running on a number of television stations soon,’’ he added.
Besides, Olanrewaju described his first film, Jaiyeku, as a tribute to his father for living for others without being selfish.
