“If there’s a better word to use in place of veteran, then that should come for this old war horse in the world of make-believe."

“Uncle Tunde Alabi has been on the acting scene since the glorious days of television drama in Nigeria and he’s today one of the last of that octopus called The Village Headmaster, a television drama that was the in-thing in its days on national television."

“He’s laying helplessly at the General Hospital, Lagos waiting to lose his right leg or even worse."

“He has done his part in putting smiles on faces and happiness in the lives of millions home and abroad, it’s our turn to help him."

“Nothing is too small. He will appreciate your candid help. Thanks and God bless”, Julius appealed.
