Multiple award winning Nollywood actor, Odunlade Adekola recently addressed the rumours of him using diabolical means to be successful in his acting career.
Debunking the rumors, he said “I never knew I would be successful as an actor; my belief has always been that God should elevate me in my endeavors. I always prayed that God should make me a successful person. Some people say that I used voodoo or metaphysical powers to be successful. I hear when they say such but I tell everyone that I can never do such. When the rumor of my death hit town, some people said that I did jazz to be successful. That was during the graduation of my students last year; I said it in public that if I had ever thought of doing jazz to succeed God should make me lose everything I had ever worked for.
He added that the rumors don’t upset him because he believes in his hard work. “I hear these comments but they do not move me at all. I am a writer, director, producer and an actor. It is normal for people to talk but it has never upset me.”
