Journalists have damaged careers of lots of entertainers – Actor Odunlade Adekola

Actor Odunlade Adekola has accused journalists of damaging the careers of several show-biz personnel just as he denied online report that he owns a hotel.

The 38-year-old actor, who was born in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital but hails from Otun-Ekiti in Ekiti State made this allegation against members of the fourth estate in a recent interview he granted when asked about how he has maintained a scandal free career.


He said, “I don’t think there’s any actor that wouldn’t have scandals. We are all humans and are prone to mistakes. Most of the problems artistes have are caused by journalists. Some journalists don’t do adequate findings before writing their stories.

“Many people form an opinion of entertainers simply by what they read about them in the media. And some of these reports may even be false. Even if we have grown thick skin towards these things, what about our children? Journalists have damaged the careers of lots of entertainers.
Meanwhile, some journalists are also guilty of what they accuse entertainers of doing. We know some of them but we cannot just mention names. I believe it is better to call whoever is doing wrong to order instead of writing a damaging report about the person.”

Adekola, who is currently an undergraduate of University of Lagos studying Business Administration alerted members of the public to activities of some fraudsters operating fake Facebook accounts in his name.

His word, “I’m not on Facebook. Most of those questions and prayers posted on Facebook are not authored by me and I want my fans to know that. I am very active on Instagram and my fans relate with me there.”
