In recent months, popular Yoruba movie star, Olaiya Igwe has been in the news on different occasions for the wrong reasons.
First he prostrated for Lagos State NURTW branch chairman Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo after the later gave him a car as a surprise gift.
Olaiya, as he’s popularly called, rolled on the floor and prostrated to appreciate MC Oluomo for the kind gesture, a move that was followed by an uproar on social media.
Not long after that, netizens again expressed disappointment in Olaiya Igwe when he recommended Portable to MC Oluomo.
A video that emerged from Portable’s visit to MC Oluomo captured Olaiya Igwe recommending the singer to the Lagos state transportation boss.
According to the veteran actor, Portable is a generous man who has taken after MC Oluomo’s generosity and principles of giving even when you don’t have enough.
This statement generated angry reactions from netizens who dragged Portable and Olaiya Igwe for their courtesy visit to MC Oluomo.

In his caption, Olaiya revealed that it is his pleasure to support a candidate who truly reflects our values and highest ideals.
Olaiya noted that he believes that BAT would be the best to protect our dreams and fight hard to keep the promise of Nigeria for the next generation.
“It is my pleasure to support a candidate who truly reflects our values and highest ideals. There is one candidate in this election who will protect that dream.
“One leader who will fight hard to keep the promise of Nigeria for the next generation. And that’s why we must stand up and make ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU JAGABAN the next president of Nigeria,” he said.

Only those depending on politicians for survival can go naked on the beach. This is how cold madness begins.
Be calming down; No one becomes anything without the approval of God.
Joblessness is a terrible thing, I just hope these characters will get jobs to do and stop wasting their time and energy on a failed project.
We have started counting the number of mad people we have in this country. I didn’t even know that even old men that supposed to exhibit some level of responsible maturity are also mad.
See them,Ohhhh,I see the handwork of MC oluomo, you have started working for the car he gave you.am sure most of them cannot go out because of scarcity of fuel,yet they are still blinded because of what they want to eat

The things the old folks condemn the younger ones for is what a supposed elder just exhibited… this is a perfect definition of “common sense no be by age”, f00ls grow old too” and to think that some old people are supporting this despicable character just because it favors their choice of political candidate.
This further justifies that the statement “respect your elders” is a scam. As parents are praying against bad behavior in their children, let children be praying agains that their parents don’t display this kind of Olaiya character. Shioor!
The other time someone trekked from Lagos to Abuja for PMB and today people trek distances because of lack of fuel and poverty, We don’t want nakedness in our nation, therefore God will not answer his prayers.
What a passionate supporter, may God bless him and answer his prayers ! We love Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu so much!
