Why we won’t help some ailing actors – TAMPAN President, Mr Latin
Bolaji Amusan, also known as Mr Latin, President of the Theatre Arts and Movies Production Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, has disclosed why the organisation would not assist certain sick actors in the film business.
Mr Latin added that the group has spent more than N10 million on health concerns affecting performers and that it is always willing to assist.
Mr Latin alleged during a recent appearance on 32FM in Ibadan that the group is unable to help some of its ill members because they are inactive.
He explained that these ailing actors are most of the time out of shame, and don’t ask TAMPAN for help but rather go on the internet, radio or television to seek help because they know they were not active members, hence the group was unable to assist them.
“We always come to the aid of all active members. Since I became the TAMPAN President, we have spent more than N10 million on the actors’ health challenges.
“The ones you see going on radio or TV to beg for money are not active members of the association.”
