Social media users have been reacting after a video revealed that Olaiya Igwe, a renowned Yoruba actor, received a brand-new Mercedes Benz from Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, the former Lagos State Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
The video which surfaced online on Friday, August 11, 2022, spotted the actor rolling on the ground in a traditional native attire to appreciate the NURTW chairman.
The video that has since gone viral online shows the actor being surprised by MC Oluomo with the vehicle.
The former NURTW head pretended to be in a situation when they approached the Benz as they were out for a nighttime stroll.
He pushed towards the car while putting his arms around Olaiya’s shoulders. Uncertain of what had happened, the Nollywood star reacted in panic before realizing what was going on.
Olaiya Igwe took off his shoes when he saw the whip, yelled in joy, then put his palm on his head in amazement.
After receiving the gift of the car, he immediately raced to where MC Oluomo had waited, where he even made a prostration on the ground. The actor, who was dressed in a traditional white overall, rolled on the ground in thanks.
This has generated massive reactions online as netizens expressed different opinions about it.
Read some of the reactions:
Hmmmmn…….with lot of thoughts.
How I wish this was done in good intentions. We all know how this came into an existence already. The self called 70 year old man gesture.
Now olaiya go campaign for tinubu
Lmao. Watch out
That is the price for the few minutes video he did to endorse Tinubu. Before you talk why didn’t he give him before he made the video. Sold out completely.
It’s funny when I read peoples comments on here about Mc oluomo … he as been given peoples gifts even without tinubu start president campaign
No wonder Olaiya has relocated his residence from Abeokuta to MC’s house in Lagos over some months ago in pasting posters of Tinubu for President, every pain has a gain. Mumu man roiling on ground like a slave for his son.😪
The truth is Olaiya might actually needed a car and it’s not politically related
