Adebayo Salami

Adebayo Salami who is popularly known as Oga Bello in a Gala event and awards for veterans in the industry held by popular actress Foluke Daramola Salako gave a speech about the problems that the industry is facing right now.

He made this speech on Friday 29th November 2019.

In his speech, he said:

We ate together and did a lot of things together. We knew where each of us stayed. We passed the night at one another’s houses, depending on the location of the job we had. If we have a job in Ibadan, we will all sleep at our colleagues’ place who stayed in Ibadan, We did the same to those who lived in Lagos. That was how it was back then. I want to plead with the young actors to let us work hand-in-hand. We need your contribution too.  Everything is evolving, culture itself is Dynamic and We can’t do anything.

And some of the young actors refused to join hands with each other because they are questing for power, but without unity and love things won’t work out well in the industry. They have forgotten that all power belongs to God. God should forgive our late boss “Ade Love”. He would always say don’t place yourself in power.

Also added by saying;
we should not forget another just like Foluke Daramola didn’t forget all the veterans. But let us put an end to Rebellion, Envy, and Backbiting so that there could be progress. If your fellow colleague is successful, it is not by his/her power, it is by God’s grace. If you bring up an idea or a suggestion and we didn’t follow it, it doesn’t mean you should stop working with them, we all have to work together.

Concluded by saying;

If you don’t have a good idea today, you will have it tomorrow. I plead with everybody let us work together.”
