Baba Suwe battles undisclosed disease, cries out


Ace comedian, Babatunde Omidina, better known as Baba Suwe, is seriously unwell and in urgent need of financial assistance for his medical bills.

The thespian in a trending video is seen interviewed in Yoruba on his ill-health.

In the interview Baba Suwe traced his sickness to when he was being prosecuted for drug trafficking by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency saying it developed while he was in detention.

In the flip, the distraught 60-year–old is seen crying profusely and pleading to Good Samaritans to come to his aid.

Despite his plight the popular comedian’s sense of humour is still intact. When asked by the interviewer if N5m would be enough for his medical expenses, he retorted: “I doubt if you have ever made money. Am not talking of such meagre sum.”
