Why I engaged in fight with touts – Legendary Actor Ogogo explains

Taiwo Hassan Ogogo

Legendary Yoruba actor Taiwo Hassan, popular called Ogogo recently got into a fight with a tout and he decided to tell his side of the story before the narrative changed.

It is not uncommon to see celebrities surrounded by fans or miscreants who hope to get money or photos with them in public.

Ogogo shared a video of himself surrounded by some boys, but the gathering soon turned into chaos with the actor burying his fist in a tout’s body.

Ogogo explained that he had gone to his hometown to inspect a project and a group of unknown men approached him claiming they were fans and sw him in movies. Knowing that such recognition came with requests, the actor offered all he had on him, but one of the touts held on to his ‘agbada’ and demanded an amount he couldn’t pay.

Ogogo ordered the young man to leave him and was met with a ‘do your worst’ dare that escalated into blows. After urging the public to stop harassing celebrities, the actor dropped a reminder that once a boxer is always a boxer.

“Before blogger’s pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth. Was in Ilaro my own home town, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals.

“All these as an actor we hear everyday, I offer all i had on me and one of them dragged me by my agbada and demanded for an amount i can’t pay. Asked him to leave me, he said “Do your worse” the rest is story , please stop harassing actors or entertainers, Do you pay anyone for doing your job, No it’s our Job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, Once a boxer always a boxer.”
