Kazeem Abimbola, popularly called Jigan Babaoja, has explained why he uploaded a photo that showed him giving ailing actor, Baba Suwe, some money.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the veteran actor had a stroke and needed urgent medical attention. Since the story broke, his colleagues in Nollywood have been paying him visits. Jigan also visited him in his Ikorodu residence in Lagos but decided to post the picture of him giving Baba Suwe some money, an action which many found ‘disrespectful’.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Jigan stated that the money donated to Baba Suwe was contributed by members of the public and he wanted to be transparent with it. He said, “When you are running a foundation, you must be as transparent as possible since it is not your money. I run the Jigan Baba Oja Foundation. I am only contributing my time and what I am doing is from my heart.”
