Comedian and actor, Bayegun Oluwatoyin, better known as Woli Arole, recently got married and needles to say, he is enjoying his new status. According to him, he feels honoured and blessed to have got married to his ‘best friend’.
He told Sunday PUNCH, “I feel good, blessed and honoured to be married. I am entering another phase of my life. It is indeed a dream come true for me. I am married to my best friend. Before, the highlights of my career were the times movies I featured in were shown in cinemas and on Netflix. But now, I have so many highlights. My prayer for my fans is to always have highlights.”
The comedian also admonished social media users not to ‘easily adopt’ trends. He said, “I recently admonished social media users on the use of slangs. The ‘cut soap for me’ slang is funny. We do not know those that invented the slang and its purpose. But, I don’t think it is safe. It feels weird and that is why I had to speak about it. We need to be careful.”

Arole was also of the view that celebrities were humans who were liable to make mistakes like anybody else. He also stated that he felt the online trend of making actor and politician, Desmond Elliot, the object of jokes on social media had gone overboard. He added, “People expect too much from celebrities. However, celebrities are humans too. They are allowed to make mistakes. People should learn that we are all striving towards perfection. No one is perfect.
“On the issue of trolling, I feel that, at times, it could affect the celebrities in ways they do not think it will. We should just be very careful. Like the Desmond Elliot thing, it has gone overboard. These people are also humans and there is no one that cannot make mistakes.”
