Rumours have circulated of late that veteran actor, Jide Kosoko, was involved in a brawl with some video club owners.
This, according to him & his family, is completely false. He explained the whole incident in a recent telephone interview.
Kosoko, who was reluctant to talk about the
incident as it was against his principle to
grant telephone interview however said it
was impossible for anybody to beat him up.
“I was never beaten up. I am a member
of the board of trustees of the Video
Rental Operators of Nigeria and there
was a crisis in the association. I was
there to mediate and find way to
resolve the crisis. While that was
happening, there was a fracas with the
video club owners as they began
fighting one another. Someone threw
a plastic bottled water and it hit me in
the eye. That was it,” he said.
Confirming what her father said, Sola Kosoko
said it was impossible for anybody to beat
her father up.
Sola said she heard about the story on the
radio and wondered how they came up with
such story. She said, “I heard about the news
on radio but how could anyone have beaten
up my father? It is not possible.”
