The 53year-old actor cum lecturer and head of the department of Theatre Arts, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED), Ijanikin, Lagos, stirred up controversy sometime in 2013 when he switched from Etisalat where he was the face of the brand to its competitor, MTN, in Saka don Port advertisement campaign.

“The truth is, I was never an ambassador to Etisalat. If you read all the papers, even before the ‘port’, all the journalists then, who were saying that I am Etisalat ambassador, I used to correct them that I am not an Etisalat ambassador. I was never Etisalat ambassador. I was just a model to an agency, Centerspread, who was handling Etisalat account. And when Centerspread left the account, it was given to another agency, which I was doing. I never had direct interaction between myself and Etisalat. I was just like any other model.

“So, when DDB, which was the agency, called me and they spoke with my lawyer, and the issue of ambassadorial thing for MTN came up I went. I was just an ordinary model,” Saka told New Telegraph.

Denying being a star, he said to the paper, “I am not particularly attractive on screen; number two, the roles that I play are not the playboy or big roles; they are just gateman, houseboy, cook, and all those small small roles. So, it has not really attracted so much stardom that will give me so much challenge. But to the glory of God, the little that I have achieved today, God has also given me the grace to manage it.”
