Nollywood actor, Abimbola Kazeem better known as Jigan babaoja, has been trending online with his latest slogan ‘so mo age mi’ (do you know my age) and the question comes with beating after he has created trouble in the community but it’s all about acting.

The actor in a recent interview he disclosed that his journey into the industry has been through the grace of God as he hopes to use his position to impact lives out there.

The concept of ‘so mo age mi’ has been trending seriously, how did you come about it?

It has been God almighty
People with disability are rarely seen in Nollywood, how have you been able to hold up so far?

I was courageous and I kept on believing one day I will be seen

The slaps you get while shooting do they hurt you sometimes?

It was miming, I do most of it with my colleagues that knows me more about it. My fans have been wonderful, they always love me for who I am and I appreciate them a lot.

You are currently shooting your own movie ‘Disable,’ what gave birth to the idea?

It’s actually about what I have been through and what I faced while I was growing up

Permit me to ask, how did the challenge come about, was it accident or disease?

I was given an injection on the wrong part of my leg while I was a baby I fell sick

Wow, people are enjoying and making your new slangs about ‘age’ trend, how old is Mr Kazeem?

I can’t say my age for now until I make it big with this slang trending then I can announce my age
