Baba Ijesha gets more social media followers, charges fees for birthday greetings

Baba Ijesha

Nollywood actor, Olarenwaju Omiyinka popularly called Baba IjeshaEmbattled actor, Olarenwaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, seems to have got his groove back, as he has constantly been making posts on social media. He is also paid to give birthday shout-outs to people celebrating birthdays and other events.

Recall that the actor is still undergoing trial over his alleged defilement of a minor. The girl in question is comedian, Princess’ ward and the alleged molestation took place at her house.

When the incident initially happened, Baba Ijesha usually looked downcast and forlorn, especially when appearing in court. However, the actor seems to have put the matter behind him and is back to his acting career. In the videos, the actor can be seen looking chubby and excited, which is a far cry from how morose he usually looked at the height of the crisis.

As of the time of filing this report, he had over 900, 000 followers on his Facebook page.

In one of the video posts, he hailed popular lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) on his birthday, describing him as someone who fights for victims of injustice. In the comment section, his followers were pleased with him as they showered him with commendation. Toyin Jaji wrote, “Good job”; CJ Chijoke wrote, “Even though I don’t understand Yoruba (language), I like this”; Adebisi Bolatito wrote, “It is a job well done. Baba Ijesha keep on thriving.”

In another video post, he greeted actor, Yomi Fabiyi, who was one his staunchest supports when the incident initially happened, especially when he was yet to be admitted to bail.

Meanwhile, our correspondent called a number displayed on the Facebook page and posed as someone who wanted to pay for a birthday shout out. The person who answered the call claimed to be Ijesha’s managers. He stated that a shout out costs between N30,000 and N50,000 naira per shout out. He said, “We have two types of birthday packages— N30,000 and N50,000.

The one of N30,000 naira will not be posted on Baba Ijesha’s page, while that of N50,000 will appear on his page.”

Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights. Certain men understand that position is an opportunity to etch their names in gold and put such in the same of time.   It is exactly fifty years today that the 42nd Deji of Akure, late Oba Agunsoyebioyinbo Ademuagun Adesida 11 joined his ancestors. That fateful day was Sunday and in the evening; darkness was just enveloping the city.
