Veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo has taken to Instagram to exclusively appreciate Nigerian billionaire, Femi Otedola, for redeeming his pledge of donating $100,000 USD (N35m) for the medical bills of ailing movie veteran and Tinsel actor Victor Olaotan.
Legit.ng had reported earlier that the actor was in a critical condition after an auto accident on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Monday, October 31, 2016. There were reports that his two legs might be amputated if nothing was done fast.
Mofe-Damijo wrote on Instagram:
“Valentine has come and gone for many but for me I am still overwhelmed by the best valentine gift yet, a text from a man who has in a short space of time become friend and brother @femiotedola confirming that he has released just a little less than $100,000 (USD) for the commencement of the treatment of my brother and friend Victor Olaotan. I just wanted to share this here not to flatter Femi but to reiterate that you are what you do not what you say you will do.
"Thank you my brother @femiotedola for proving that you are a man of your words. God bless you.

The actor is said to be currently receiving treatment and hailing fine.
Olaotan is best known for his role as Fred Ade-Williams in the long-running television series Tinsel. He was on MNET’s Tinsel series for seven years. He once worked with NTA in Ibadan, Oyo state where he produced Yoruba and English dramas.
In October 2016, just about the time Olaotan had an accident, another veteran actor Tunde Alabi’s leg was amputated after suffering from acute diabetes at the Lagos state general hospital.
