Multiple awards winning Yoruba actor,Odunlade Adekola better known as ‘Monday Omo Adugbo’ recently addressed the rumours of him using diabolical means to be successful in his movie career.
Debunking the rumours, the talented actor said, “I knew I would be successful as an actor; my belief has always been that God should elevate me in my endeavours. I always prayed that almighty God should make me a successful person. Some people say that I used voodoo or metaphysical powers (Juju) to be successful. I hear when they say such,but I tell everyone that I can never do such. When the rumours of my death hit town, some people said that I did Jazz (Voodoo) to be successful. That was during the graduation of my students last year; I said in public that if I ever had thought of doing jazz to succeed God should make me lose everything I had worked for.
Odunlade added that “the rumours flying around don’t upset him because he believes in his hard-work.”I hear these comments but they do not move me at all, I’m a writer, director, producer and actor. It is normal for people to talk but it has never upset me”
