Multiple sources claimed the "Tinsel" star was in a coma and unresponsive to treatment.

However, a close family member disputed claims of being unresponsive. "He is stable and fine. We his family are thankful," she said.

She, however, declined to give any further information, saying, "E ṣá ba wa dúpẹ́ (Please just be thankful on our behalf)" before hanging up.

Now, comedian Ali Baba says the actor is doing well after his unfortunate accident. He also thanked the Lagos State response team for their quick response.

According to him, "On behalf of #victorolaotan, his family and friends, I want to specially thank the admirable spirit of the new Lagos State RRS. They saved the life of our friend yesterday by quickly responding to a distress call and came to his rescue. The Hospital also deserves to be acknowledged for accepting him without asking for a dime and working hard to stop his bleeding and stabilize him. God worked through the hands of these people. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you @akinwunmiambode. God bless you."

Victor Olaotan was on MNET’s "Tinsel" series for seven years where he played the role of Fred Ade-Williams.
