Movie actor, Abdulsalam Ishola Sanyaolu, popularly known as Agbako or Charles Olumo, has warned his colleagues not to shed crocodile tears when he dies.
The Yoruba actor said this in an interview with The Sun. He warned his colleagues, whom he said deserted him when he was down with ill health, that his spirit would whip them if they cried at his funeral.
“I have told them, and I’m also using this opportunity to inform them, that nobody should come and shed crocodile tears at my burial.
“If they do, my spirit will flog them, because when I needed their help, they were nowhere to be found,” he said.
The 94-year-old said while he battled a weakened heart, none of his colleagues in the industry, except Esther Idowu Philips, popularly called Mama Rainbow, came to his aid.
He added that although he spent years in the movie industry, he did not make money. Agbako said he had started out as an entertainer, jumping off a 10-storey building, carrying a mortar on his chest while as many as 12 women pounded yam, as well as dancing on broken bottles.
During his years in the industry, he produced three films: Agba Aja, Ajana Oro and Nkan Se.
