Veteran Nigerian actor Adewale Elesho has appealed to popular blogger and spiritualist, Esther Tokunbo Aboderin, popularly known as Iya Esabod, asking her not to demean or make jest of veteran actress Lanre Hassan, popularly known as Iya Awero for her ill leg condition.
Recall that Iya Esabod had slammed the veteran actress alongside Jide Kosoko and many other elders in the Yoruba sect of the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood for her silence in the recent back and forth amidst members over Baba Ijesha’s defilement and molestation saga. Esabod linked Iya Awero’s legs condition to wayward and immoral activities while growing up.Reacting in a video he put out on his Instagram page, Adewale Elesho described Iya Awero as a mother of the Industry, explaining that her leg condition was due to the tours and activities she underwent in taking stage play across various part of Nigeria during her prime in her career.
Adding that he is appealing to Esabod and is not insitgating a war or fight against her, Elesho stated that moving from one state to another to entertain the audience and rigorous dancing were the order of the day before the modern movie came to limelight and Iya Awero was one of the few who engaged in that.
