Veteran Yoruba Nollywood actor, Fatai Odua Adekunle Adetayo better known as Lalude is on his way to becoming a car owner.
It all started with comic actor, Kamo, who discovered that the movie veteran did not have a car after calling him to work on a skit production.
Kamo was moved by Lalude’s situation and made a video alongside the actor where he explained things and pleaded with fans to help him get a car.
