Damola Olatunji has stated that Baba Suwe started skit making in Nigeria, as he showered encomium on the late comedian.
Baba Suwe was known for making a number of people laugh with his signature roles in movies as a confused servant with a sharp tongue and a number of people were moved by the sad news of his death.
Speaking after his demise, Damola Olatunji, who is also the Chairman Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) Guild of Directors, said that Baba Suwe was a great man who enjoyed stardom to the peak. He said;
“He was a very great actor, one of the few actors that enjoyed stardom to the peak. He was so great to the extent that I could say he started skit making in Nigeria. I could remember that it got to a stage that the demand was so much that Baba Suwe would shoot two to three minutes skits into the VHS and give it to you to insert in your own movies.”
“He was so great that, even when you make movies and you take it to Idumota then, they will tell you to go and include Baba Suwe in it.
“He was able to able to use his stardom to achieve a lot of things. His death is a great loss to the entertainment sector and I pray the Lord grants his family the fortitude to bear the loss.”
