My two eyes never deceive me anytime, they are very accurate. That beautiful afternoon, just passing by along a street in Lagos State, the acclaimed Vice Chancellor of Entertainment, Alhaji Abass Akande Obesere, was sighted with a tea container dishing out for people to buy.
He walked through the streets advertising his wares to attract patronisers and many people were surprised seeing him in such a condition.
We looked around, it was not a Nollywood shoot and then we began to wonder.
To many people’s surprise, a man came from nowhere and said: ‘Cut! Cut! Good job Papa’. Everybody hissed but stayed glued waiting for the next scene. We were later told an Islamic artiste had featured Alhaji Obesere in a song and the visuals were just being shot.
Speaking to us, Obesere said he only acted according to the director and nothing else. “I did what the director asked me to do and nothing else. People actually thought I had turned a tea-seller and were saying is that not Papa selling tea, no he is not? Let’s go and buy,” he said.
