He is one of the big names in the Yoruba movie scene. He is seen as an elder whose views matter on issues in the Yoruba sector of the Nigerian film industry. But those who knew him while he was young said he used to sell locks at his father’s shop at Agarawu Market near Idumota. But things changed for this actor from Ogun State once he started acting.

His kids school and live abroad unlike him who started out as a trader.
