Nollywood actor, Taiwo Hassan, popularly known as Ogogo, has narrated why he beat up a tout in public saying he was only defending himself.
Ogogo in a post shared on his Instagram page Friday said the incident occurred during his visit to his hometown in Ilaro, Ogun State.
He wrote, “Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth. I was in Ilaro, my hometown, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals.
“We watch your movie. Give us money. We watched you all through our childhood. All these as an actor, we hear every day. I offered all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my agbada and demanded an amount I couldn’t pay.
“I asked him to leave me and he said, “Do your worse” the rest is a story. Please stop harassing actors or entertainers; do you pay anyone for doing your job? No it’s our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer always a boxer.”
