When he returned to his hometown of Ilaro to examine a project, he says he was confronted by a group of unidentified supporters who demanded money.

He claimed that after giving away everything he had, a greedy admirer wanted more and brought his traditional dress, known as the ‘agbada,’ into the process, leading to his outburst.

Ogogo was so enraged by the fan’s taunts that he challenged the man to do whatever he wanted.

Narrating what happened, the actor said, “Before bloggers pick this up, let me tell my side of the story and the truth.”

He added, “I was in Ilaro, my own home town, for an inspection of a project, after which some unknown guys walked up to me for the normal appraisals. ‘We watch your movie’, ‘give up money, ‘We watched you all through our childhood’…All these as an actor we hear everyday.

“I offered all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my Agbada and demanded for an amount I can’t pay. I asked him to leave me, he said, ‘Do your worse’. The rest is story.”

“Do you pay anyone for doing your job? No. It’s our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer, always a boxer,” he wrote.

Ogogo began his acting career in 1981, shortly after starting work as a mechanic. In 1994 he left his job at the water corporation to concentrate on acting.
