Veteran Nollywood actor, Baba Alapinni, has made a heartfelt appeal to his fans, requesting a car gift.
In a circulating video, the well-known figure in the Yoruba film industry revealed that he had previously owned a car, but was compelled to sell it in order to cover the medical expenses for his 40-year-old son, who tragically fell severely ill and eventually passed away.
Appeal for a Car Gift:
Baba Alapinni, known for his agility and versatility, showcased his plea in the video by energetically jumping.
He humbly requested his followers and admirers to assist him in acquiring another car, acknowledging the challenges he had faced and the necessity of having reliable transportation.
Inspiration from a Yoruba Actress:
It is worth noting that Baba Alapinni’s plea comes shortly after Yoruba actress Margaret Olayinka, widely known as Iya Gbonkan, received a brand new car as a gift from her fans.
The 64-year-old actress, who has made significant contributions to Yoruba cinema, became the subject of a viral video in which she expressed her desire for a car despite her fame and many years of work in the industry.
Support from Admirers:
The passionate appeal made by Iya Gbonkan moved her followers, who decided to celebrate her achievements and legacy while she is still alive, rather than waiting until her passing.
Their generous response resulted in the presentation of a new car to the beloved actress, a gesture that deeply touched her.
Baba Alapinni’s appeal for a car gift reflects the challenges faced by actors in the Nigerian film industry.
Inspired by the support shown to Iya Gbonkan, he reached out to his fans for assistance.
Such acts of generosity and appreciation not only honor the actors’ contributions but also highlight the importance of recognizing their accomplishments during their lifetime.
