That is the adage that best illustrates the cold war between a renowned indigenous musician cum veteran actor, Chief Sulaiman Aremu Ayilara popularly known as Ajobiewe and Nigerian Telecommunication giant, Globalcom Limited owned by Otunba Mike Adenuga.
The actor, who is known for his “Ewi” chants has accused the Network of owing him the whooping sum of five million naira endorsement deal fee.
The Ila Orangun born thespian told Yorubamoviegist.com that, he was contacted in 2013 to do a special song with video for the chairman of Globalcom Limited, Mike Adenuga for the sum of ten million naira but he was paid only five million and the company promised to pay the balance later.
Ajobiewe said that out of the paid five million, a globacom staff known as Bode Opeseyitan who was the intermediary between him and the company deceively collected two million naira from him for the man he brought to handle the camera for the production, and Opeseyitan allegedly warned the Musician that only the man he brought can handle the projerct effectively because the is working for Globalcom.
The multiple award winning actor and ‘ewi’ expert further said that, Opeseyitan succeeded in collecting more than four millions naira from the initial five million paid. He said since that time, Globalcom has refused to pay the balance of five million naira and Opeseyitan has been playing smart game with him.
‘Opeseyitan has not been picking my calls again and he has refused to pay my balance, i am pleading to all well- meaning Nigerians to beg this man on my behalf to pay my balance. It is my sweat, they should pay me my money’, Ajobiewe begged.
Meawhile, all our efforts to hear from Opeseyitan before posting this report proved abortive as he was no where to be found. We placed several calls to him but no one picked up nor reply the calls.
