Veteran actor, Abdulsalam Ishola Sanyaolu popularly known as Charles Olumo ‘Agbako’ in the Yoruba movie industry has
been down with a strange ailment that rendered him incapacitated and made him disappear from the scene for some time.
The 94-year-old thespian who is now back on his feet granted an interview recently where he said, ‘I have told them,
and I’m also using this opportunity to inform them, that nobody should come and shed crocodile tears at my burial.
If they do, my spirit will flog them, because when I needed their help, they were nowhere to be found’.
He went on to say, ‘I have been sick but thank God I’m back on my feet. My ailment was heart-related and after
series of test, I was told that my heart was weak, coupled with the fact that I often forgot things, so I was placed
on drugs that must be used to avoid any crisis’. When asked if he underwent any surgery, he said, ‘no, the doctors
said there was no way they could perform surgery on me. They said the drugs were very essential and must not be skipped.
Though, I was operated upon when I had urinary ailment recently, I’m free from that now’.
Sad. Papa Charles Olumo has spoken. We need to imbibe the spirit of generosity and help people who are genuinely
in need not saving money to show off in burials.
