Veteran actor, Taiwo Hassan aka Ogogo has explained why he engaged a fan in a fight on the streets of Ilaro in Ogun State.
Videos of the incident that circulated showed Ogogo and an unidentified man getting involved in a tussle before the actor disengaged himself, hopped into his car, and zoomed off.
Ogogo took to Instagram to explain his side of the story on Friday.
He explained that the fan and some others had walked up to him and asked him for a sum he could not afford.
The actor said he gave the contingent all the cash he had on him but the said fan was not satisfied.
He said that the fan dragged his cloth, hence his reaction captured in the video.
“Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth.
“I was in Ilaro, my own home town, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals. ‘We watch your movie’, ‘give up money, ‘We watched you all through our childhood’…All these as an actor we hear everyday.
“I offered all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my Agbada and demanded an amount I can’t pay. I asked him to leave me, he said, ‘Do your worse’. The rest is story,” the actor wrote.
Ogogo advised fans to stop harassing actors and other entertainers for money.
