See Why Jide Kosoko’s 70th Birthday Bash Won’t Hold

The 70th birthday bash of legendary actor, Jide Kosoko, has been suspended.

The development was made known by the thespian who turned 70 on January 12.

Kosoko hinged the reason on the present economic hardship in Nigeria but he appreciated his colleagues and fans who came up with the idea of celebrating his contributions to the industry while he was still alive.

While declining the offer, the actor said, “putting it (celebration) on hold because of the masses, of which I am part of”.

The thespian in an Instagram post on Sunday, said he was sure that “very soon, the challenges facing the country will be over and we will all be happy about it”.

Meanwhile, Fuji icon, Wasiu Ayinde, aka K1 De Ultimate, also recently cancelled his birthday celebration due to the current economic hardship in the country.

Both men were staunch supporters of President Bola Tinubu during the last presidential election.
