We reported earlier that Nigerian and Nollywood actor Victor Olaotan and lead character of popular TV soap opera Tinsel is on the verge of losing his legs as a result of a car accident he was involved in two years ago on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. We reported that Victor Olaotan and his family had earlier begged good willing and kindhearted individuals to help them raise fund in the tune of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) to fly the Nollywood actor abroad for proper medical and alternative treatment and rehabilitation so that his legs won’t be amputated.
Now, fellow Nollywood actor, friend, and colleague of Victor Olaotan, Richard Mofe Damijo popularly called RMD has just announced the latest developments about the situation on his Instagram page this morning. According to the actor cum politician, RMD had reached out to billionaire businessman Femi Otedola to seek help for his friend and colleague Victor Olaotan to raise the needed funds for the actor’s immediate medical treatment abroad. RMD was excited as he announced that Femi Otedola has agreed to take care of all the hospital bill accrued in the medical treatment of veteran Nigerian and Nollywood actor Victor Olaotan as he flies abroad for proper medical care. RMD wrote on his Instagram page:
“So, a few days ago, I reached out to @femiotedola asking for help for my friend and brother, Victor and just this morning Femi calls to tell me that he would take care of ALL of Victor’s bills. He told me that he is already on it and that his people are talking to Victor’s wife. Is God not awesome????? I can’t even contain my joy and gratitude. Thank you Femi @femiotedola you are a man and half and thank you to my young friend @gbenroajibade for championing this cause, they don’t make them like you anymore, you are such an amazing ‘child’ and I am proud to know you. Thank you to everyone who has supported in one way or the other. It’s been a long time coming”
We are most certainly happy and thankful to hear to hear this news which is by far the best news we have heard today. We are also happy that help has finally come to Victor Olaotan and his family.
