The dream of many students who desired to be a movie star at Mass Communication department of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic Abeokuta Ogun State was dashed when popular artist,Femi Branch visited them with a visible book and a failed promised.
Femi Branch was an household name in the movie industry and he leveraged on it to address the students 9years ago with the promise to groom them in the acting line.
One of the victims, Elegbede Ayoola said Femi Branch sold the book to several students with the promise that he would assist their acting career.
According to Ayoola, that was the last heard from him till date.
Mr Ayoola wrote on his Facebook wall,
“Dear Femi Branch,
About 9 years ago, you came to Mapoly, Mass Communication Department to sell this book to us as students with the promise to co-opt us into the acting line. That day, I used the money meant for my textbook to buy your book cos I had passion for acting. Till date, you’re no where to be found. Anytime I come across your movies, I remember that incident and it saddens my heart so much that a personality like you can do such a thing for young ones.
Anyways, we (those of us who bought the book and those who were in class that day) still remember and we’ll never forget. “
Many of Ayoola’s colleagues testified to the incident and said it was unfortunate for such a prominent personality in the industry.
