Nigerian actor, Yemi Solade, says he will not allow anybody throw jabs at him on social media.

The actor who recently turned 62years stated this in a chat with Punch.

The actor said anyone who does that will be referred back to his/her parents.

He said “I am human and I am on social media to express myself. I am not there to encourage anybody to throw jabs at me. I am an African man who is a chieftaincy title holder.

“I cannot allow an 18-year-old throw jabs at me. I will send that person back to his parents because this is Africa. Social media is not a leveller.”

Speaking about how it feels clocking 62 years, Yemi Solade said, “I don’t have any special feeling clocking 62 years. It is the same old me. I am myself; hale and hearty, and I remain the actor that people know me to be. My craft has helped to sustain my name in the industry over the years. A lot of people are endeared to me because they appreciate good art.

“The quality of the training I got and my natural ability to deliver have helped me. Also, my physical attributes (have helped). When Nigerians see anything that looks flashy, they want to surround it. I am very focused. I have been an actor for 45 years, and that speaks volumes. It tells me I am doing well.”

The actor added that he pays special attention to his appearance in public.

He concluded “I pay special attention to my appearance in public. I don’t want to be everywhere. I want my work to speak for me. The creative industry has too many events and I don’t have to attend them all. I just want to do my work and go home, rest and look forward to the next job.

“However, that does not mean I don’t attend events. I only select the ones I attend. I never set out to be a popular person. I only wanted to express my innate ability to do theatre arts.”
