Popular actors Yemi Ayebo, more popular with the stage name- ‘Yemi My Lover’, and two of his colleagues Babatunde Omidina, the make believe expert known as Babasuwe and his sidekick Opebe, real names Yomi King are currently in a messy fight.
Their issue has root in a campaign fee they reportedly got from public identifying with the re election seeking governor of Ondo state- Olusegun Mimiko.
Insiders revealed the trio travelled to Ondo state recently to drum up support for the leading candidate in the upcoming guber poll.
The deal was reportedly facilitated by Yemi Ayebo. He is identified as a native of Ondo state.
Sources claimed after all said and done- they were given N200.000 ( Two hundred thousand naira) as a group. And Babasuwe as an individual got another N250,000 ( Two hundred and fifty thousand) for supporting the labour party candidate despite overtures from rival party, Action Congress of Nigeria’s campaign team.
Insiders claimed it later emerged of the N200.000 joint fee- actor Opebe received just N5,000!
Insiders revealed Babasuwe and Yemi My Lover shared the remaining N195.000 on equal basis.
Informants claimed, it was about two hours after the deed was done that Opebe got a hint of what went down and he was greatly infuriated.
He reportedly stormed Yemi Ayebo’s room and charged at him- stridently telling all that cares to know the cause of his grouse.
According to a source ‘it took a while for onlookers to separate the combatants’
Sources further revealed by the time the peace makers got the full hang of what was amiss- Babasuwe had disappeared.
Opebe was said to have rained curse words and abuses on both Ayebo and Babasuwe tagging them ‘greedy betrayals’.
He reportedly vowed to get all due him back from them, tagging ‘his enemies’.
It is not clear how far he has gone with this at press time- but informants confirmed ‘since the incident remains alienated with his former confidants’
