Nothing has been heard from popular actor , Babatunde Omidina aka Baba Suwe in a long time. It seems his career took a nosedive after he was detained by the National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency on allegations of drug trafficking , some years ago . When nothing incriminating was found on the veteran actor even after he was detained for some days by the agency, a Lagos High Court ordered the NLDEA to pay the actor a compensation fee of N 25m . The publicity generated by the event and the ensuing court case cast a negative pall on Baba Suwe’ s career which he has yet to recover from . His problems were compounded by the fact that he had lost his wife , Monsurat Omidina aka Omoladun Kenkelewu , some years earlier . The actor said in some past interviews that his life became empty after the demise of Omoladun .
However, things may likely get better in a little while. In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Baba Suwe revealed that he would be getting married again . He said , “ It has been hard for me to cope since the death of my wife because I don’ t have any woman with me . I really loved and trusted my former wife . But I will marry again , and it may be soon . However , it also has to do with money , because women will not love you if you don’ t have money. ”
Speaking on the situation of things as regards the N 25m the NDLEA was ordered to pay him , he said , “ The NDLEA did not give me any money like the court ruled, and I have forgotten about it. I ’ m not interested in pursuing any case against them again , as I don’ t have money to hire another lawyer . The former lawyer ( Mr . Bamidele Aturu ) who was pursuing the case for me is dead. He really wanted us to see the case to a logical conclusion because I ’ m not a cocaine pusher. I was really embarrassed and that incident affected my career and health . During the time , people did not call me for movies . However , I just finished working on my own movie . ”
