August 12, 2015 – Abija Turns Beggar, Nollywood Yoruba Tajudeen Oyewole Actor Begging For Money Says Lack Of Education Has Landed Him In Poverty

“I Have No House, No Land, No Car, I’m As Poor As A Church Rat”  – Tajudeen Oyewole

Yoruba actor Tajudeen Oyewole aka Abija Wara Bi Ekun is going through a very rough time at the moment.

The actor who was very popular in the early 90s is now limping following a ghastly accident that happened back in 2007. The actor lost his car while returning from a movie set and since then, he hasn’t recovered.

In an exclusive chat with the Entertainer, the actor begged well meaning Nigerians to come to his rescue

In his words:

“I was born over 50 years ago. I attended only primary school at Local Authority Primary School, Oniyere in Ayedun Agbo Bi Ekun Village, Osogbo, Osun State. My parents actually sent me to school but I was a truant. That is why I did not go beyond primary school, but it pains me now. At the moment, none of my children is into acting, but one of them edits. As for me, I think it is education first for children. If they place acting first, their future could be ruined. It is lack of education that almost ruined me.”.

“I am not rich; I don’t have a roof over my head, which is part of measuring one’s wealth in this part of the world; I don’t even have a land. And it’s not because I am not serious or that I’m a prodigal son; the money realised from acting is just not much, or even enough, as people out there or our fans think. I am prudent and I have only one wife. But having said that, I cannot say that I am not a rich man, because I have children higher institutions, although I may not be rich in cash.

“I want Nigerians to help me in my career. I need sponsors. I am not a greedy person. I believe in Allah. People interestingly call me Alhaji, although I am yet to visit Mecca. The only car I own was condemned in that accident. As I speak, it probably would have been towed away by government agencies. I will appreciate every help that comes my way.

Heya!!! Nigerians make una help him oooo.

    “Abijah wara bi ekun

    Arogun ma tidi

    Abijah gbaragidi deru ogunnu” hahahahha:):):)

    Yes, sir! Who told you are not educated. Reading your command of English goes beyond woooow. I respect that a lot. It’s nothing to be ashamed off, sir. The first thing that ruined your opportunity in the so called Nollywood was the bad deal (they cheated you as I heard) in the very famous movie titled “Opa Aje”.

    I am quiet sure that well meaning Nigerians at home and abroad will come to your aid. There are many fathers of ours who did not go beyond primary school as well. They also have children in higher institutions. With time I believe, inshallah, everything will be fine. I can not possibly offer financial support at this very moment but I can definitely offer kind words as instructed by Islamic noble prophet (SAW). Qur’an teaches us that after hardship there is always ease.

    What amazes me about you sir, is your look (you never age) and your age. I’d thought you are in your 60s. There is nothing to worry about not being educated sir. While education is very important, it’s not a do or die affairs. It’s Nigeria economy that cheated you. Jimmy Kimmel, a “Night live” entertainer did not go beyond high school yet he’s in millions that even many professors only dream of being him. I also give thanks to Allah (azal wajal) that, despite tests and trials you going through you do not lose faith. What a wonderful man.

    Allah is the Giver of wealth and He will give you. It’s indeed easy for him. May your children prosper. Ameena

    @naijagists, jazakhallahu khayran.

    D likes of Abijah, dagunro, the late Ajigijaga nd d rest of dem play a single role nd dey ar addicted to dat role which probably would av added more to their misfortune in their career respectively…..lukin @ it from d angle of Yinka Quadri nd ogogo nd d rest of dem, I tink dese pple strive more in order for dem to fit in in oda roles in d same field wit d aforementioned names. I heard from a reliable source dat yinka Quadri just enrolled back to school, even b4 now u knew education is vital, yet u neva made a move. Adding value to our lives shld always b our major priority. Sir Abijah Ain’t blaming you tho… may God help u lykwise me.
