I am not broke, Saidi Balogun refutes rumour

Actor, Saidi Balogun, is in the news again. This time, he is coming out to refute claims in some quarters that he has gone broke, hence his decision to come back to acting.

Balogun said there was no iota of truth in the report, saying that “some people tend to deceive themselves by believing that they know everything that happens to you as though they live inside your house or they know every move that you make.”

Reports surfaced weeks ago that Balogun was having some financial problems and that he has stopped attending public events as a result of his financial status.

R gathered that Balogun, who has not been appearing in his colleagues’ movies for about three years has now returned to acting and some people believe that the actor returned because he was having difficulties meeting up with some financial obligations

The actor insisted that he would not have responded to the report as there was no iota of truth in it, adding that “if you think I am broke, then you should know that what you think does not in any way affect my life. The truth is that I have better things to do with my time than to be responding to hearsays. Everybody is busy with activities that would better their lives and I am not exception to that. I am neither rich nor broke, but I am happy and contented with what God has done for me.”

He added that he was not appearing in other people’s movies for some time because he was busy with other engagements that were not necessarily related to acting.

“I have been in and out of the country for the past one or two years. Having said that, how does my absence and return translate to me being broke? I don’t think that argument is logical,” he said.
