April 28, 2014 – Lere Paimo Survives Stroke, Wins One Million On Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Last year around May, veteran Nollywood actor Lere Paimo popularly called Eda Onile Ola battled partial stroke that incapacitated him for months.
After several months of treatment, the talented actor bounced back to health in mid-January 2014.
He was a special guest on the recently concluded Easter edition of Who Wants to be a millionaire show.
With the assistance of former winners Babatunde Oni and Gloria Young, Lere Paimo won one million naira cash prize on the popular TV money game show.
In a recent chat with Encomium, he expressed his joy to the organizers of the popular TV show for showing him love:
In his own words:
“They are really doing good and showing love. No doubt, the N1 million I just won would go a long way.
The Yoruba would say Eni ti o ba n fe teni, olorun lo maa n fe ti e naa’ (God loves whoever shows love). I pray God would continue to show love to them, grant them peace, make this company to grow and bless them forever. They have made us to see how good Nigerians can be, from when they visited me in my house, through my stay with them here, till I got to the hot seat. I have kept wondering if this kind of hospitality can be found anywhere in Nigeria. This is a very impressive experience for me at my age! God will bless the organisers.”
