DELE ODULE FIGHTS YINKA QUADRI OVER BISI KOMOLAFE
Two popular Yoruba actors, Dele Odule and Yinka Quadri, are allegedly at loggerheads over beautiful actress, Bisi Komolafe. The problem started at the movie location of popular Yoruba comedian, Sanyeri, where Dele and Bisi were billed to perform. We learnt that Dele called Bisi to demand for her tally number as a leader on location and she acted rude to the veteran actor. Dele thereafter tongue-lashed Bisi and her friend, Yinka, by addressing them as illiterates who lack respect for elders.
We learnt that Bisi refused to greet Dele henceforth on the movie set. Angered by Bisi’s act, Dele reportedly was said to have descended on her again and her boss, Yinka Quadri.
But unknown to Dele, who later called Yinka to report Bisi to him, the beautiful actress had already told her boss over phone about the development, especially the insult meted out to him.
This, according to reports, degenerated into an exchange of words between the two veteran Yoruba actors.
When we called Yinka on Saturday, August 4,2012, he said: “My brother, it’s not true that I’m at loggerheads with Dele Odule. Don’t mind people that would not let the sleeping dogs rest! What is it that has caused so much attention like that? They said Bisi Komolafe was on location with Dele Odule and Dele asked her for her tally number as a leader and they said Bisi was rude to her. That’s all! What is my own? When I saw Dele, I begged him and we settled the matter amicably. So, how has that turned to another serious issue? Don’t mind the rumour mongers, they are only mischief makers. I wasn’t there and when I asked Dele, he denied calling me an illiterate and we settled it amicably”. We equally called Dele Odule and Bisi Komolafe, but their mobile phones were switched off, apparently indicating that they were still at the movie location.
