“I’m not your mate, you were in secondary school when I started acting” – Veteran actor, Pariolodo calls out Mr. Latin
Pariolodo a veteran Nollywood actor has publicly berated his colleague and the president of the Theater Arts and Motion Picture Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Mr. Latin, for refusing to assist him in his time of need.
This comes after the veteran Yoruba movie star received a car, foodstuffs, and household items from well-meaning Nigerians after he cried out for help.
He had previously opened up about the difficulties he was facing in a viral video, and Nigerians generously came to his aid.
Following the support he received from Nigerians, Pariolodo called out TAMPAN president, Mr. Latin, in a new video circulating online.
He expressed his disappointment that Mr. Latin refused to help him on the grounds that he was not an active member of the association.
Pariolodo claimed that despite his long-standing contribution to the Nigerian film industry, he did not receive the support he expected from someone in a position of influence like Mr. Latin.
He emphasized that he is not on the same level as Mr. Latin, as he has been in the industry long before him. He stated that he started acting in 1976, while Mr Latin was still in secondary school.
“Mr. Latin, you were in secondary school when I ventured into Nollywood. I am not your mate. I started acting in 1976,” he said in Yoruba.
