On his demand to “dash” him “something,” we let out a throaty laughter, taking that as his comical way of welcoming us. What else do you expect from a veteran comedian like Moses Olaoluwa Adejumo’s (a.k.a Baba Sala)?

But there was steel in his voice and expression that told us he was very serious when repeated the demand: “you must drop something if you want to interview me”.

Tensed silence.

Momentarily tongue-tied, Dada Osasona, The Sun photographer and I exchanged awkward glances, wondering if our prospective interview subject was the same Adejumo, accomplished entertainer, theatre artiste, film maker and ingenuous creator of the popular comic character, Baba Sala, who made waves on stage, radio, television and cinema, particularly among Yoruba audience for close to three decades (mid 60s to early 90s).

At last, we managed to find our voice. We had no money to give, we said.


However, what we could offered, we tried to explain carefully, was an opportunity for him to connect with his numerous fans, who, obviously might have been wondering what could have happened to their idol – to think that he slipped out of the public glare unceremoniously. Certainly, we coaxed, he would not want to disappoint them.
