This is not the first time the actor would have a run-in with the police in Lagos. In February 2020, his movie set was disrupted by some police officers in Lagos.

In the video which trended on social media, the officers demanded their work permits. This was met with stiff resistance from the actor and his crew. The armed police officers argued with the film crew by the roadside and stalled their filming for hours. The matter was later resolved amicably.

The actor became famous after he starred in Yomi Fash-Lanso’s movie “Ojo” (Rain). He has since featured in a number of movies including: ‘Man’s Best Friend’, Status, Ona MiIyawo, Koro, Toromade, Arewa Ojo and many others.

The actor, who emerged as TAMPAM’s Chairman in June 2020, has starred alongside various actors and actresses like Femi Adebayo, Bolaji Amusan, Peju Ogunmola, Damola Olatunji, Yinka Quadri and many others.
