Nollywood actor, Saidi Balogun, has denied rumours making the rounds that he received a contract from Oyo Governor, Senator Isiaka Ajimobi to shoot a movie.

The actor stated that what actually happened was him producing a movie to portray the transformation of Oyo state through a well package movie.

“No, I didn't win any contract from him. What happened was that people around him, including myself just wanted to show Ibadan people what Oyo State as a whole is now through a well packaged movie. Let the whole world see what we're clamouring about,” he told Encomium.

Saidi stressed that while shooting the movie, everything he did was free as there was no exchange of anything between him and the governor.

In his words, “No, there is nothing like that. I have said it many times, Ajimobi is a very nice person but he always wants you to do things and let him see the result of your efforts first. He doesn't believe in let's give him this, let's give him that, so that he can do something for us. He always wants to know where you stand first.”
