Well-known veteran Yoruba actors Lalude beg for money for a car on social media (Watch)

A video has emerged online featuring Kamo, a renowned comedian called “Nepa Boys,” and Fatai Adekunle Adetayo, also known as Lalude, on the set of a movie.

In the video, Kamo can be seen speaking in Yoruba, appealing to his fans to kindly help Lalude acquire a car so that he no longer has to rely on motorcycles for transportation.

Not long ago, an amount of 4.6 million naira was raised for veteran actress Iya Gbonkan to assist her in completing her house and buying a car. This initiative was made possible through the efforts of the popular prophet Gabriel.

According to an online report, Pastor Gabriel, upon watching the video, got in touch with and personally visited the individual in Osogbo. Acting promptly, he started making arrangements by collecting funds from compassionate individuals worldwide, with the aim of turning Lalude’s dream into a tangible reality.

Currently, Lalude is on the verge of facing a situation similar to that of Iya Gbonkan.
