Ailing Nollywood actor Victor Olaotan can now heave a sigh of relief as billionaire and philanthropist, Femi Otedola has agreed to foot all his medical bills.
This came soon after a few Nollywood actors spearheaded by Gbenro Ajibade began a campaign to raise funds for the lead cast of Tinsel – www.thenet.ng reports!
The veteran actor who was involved in an accident in October 2016, was driving from movie set when the accident which injured his both legs, took place around Apple Junction, in Festac, Lagos.
He is thus seeking $50,000 for medical treatment abroad to avoid amputating his leg.
While announcing Femi Otedola’s kind gesture, veteran actor, Richard Mofe- Damijo took to Instagram to narrate how he got a call from Otedola who revealed that he was already handling Olaotan’s bills.

So, a few days ago, I reached out to @femiotedola asking for help for my friend and brother Victor and just this morning, Femi calls to tell me that he would take care of ALL of Victor’s bills. He told me that he is already on it and that his people are already talking with Victor’s wife. Is God not awesome????? I can’t even contain my joy and gratitude. Thank you Femi @femiotedola you are a man and a half and thank you to my young friend @gbenroajibade for championing this cause, they really don’t make them like you anymore, you are such an amazing “child” and I am proud to know you. Thank you to everyone who has supported in one way or the other. It’s been a long time coming
