Jide Kosoko Tongue Lashes Elesho In Public For Calling Him Ex-ANTP President -Elesho Reacts

One of the days that popular albino actor Adewale Elesho will never forget in his entire life was Sunday, 29th December 2013, as he bit more than he can chew and got embarrassed for it publicly by the on-going President of Association of Nigeria Theatre Art- Practitioners (ANTP), Prince Jide Kosoko.
According to information at our disposal, Adewale Elesho, Prince Jide Kosoko, host of other artistes and other top personalities were gathered at the end of the year party organized by oko oloyun in Lagos. When the MC anchoring the programme, Timothy Agboola otherwise known as Ereke ni shop called upon Adewale Elesho to come and greet his colleagues, fans and admirers at the event, while recognizing some top filmmakers, he addressed Prince Jide Kosoko as the Ex-President of ANTP. This, we learnt really infuriated Kosoko and made his action known to Jimoh Aliu who was seated beside him.
Unfortunately for Elesho, after he alighted from the stage, Jide Kosoko was also called by the MC to greet his fans, colleagues and admirers just like Elesho. But surprisingly, Kosoko who has already been angry with Elesho’s statement first, corrected the impression given by Elesho that he was not an ex- president, and further embarrassed Elesho calling him all sorts of names that he would not forget in his life.
To confirm the story, Global Excellence called Adewale Elesho popularly known as Enunjawaya on Wednesday 8th January, 2014. He said ‘’ WHAT HAPPENED WAS TRUE. Jide Kosoko is my boss; I can’t reply him on any issue. “Oga le soro si omo ise, iyen ko se nnkankan’’ Just the way he talked to me and  I didn’t  reply , if oga Bello talked to him that way too, he won’t reply him’’.
In his own reaction, Prince Jide Kosoko said “ it’s true we were together at a gathering when he was asked to say hello to people, when he wanted to recognize me, he  said, I greet my brother Prince Jide Kosoko, past president of ANTP. Some members of the association who were there wanted to react but I told them not to. Unfortunately, the opportunity came for me to react to what Elesho said. And when he was on stage, he said he was joking about what he said. So when I was reacting, I said since he could not see well during day time, it might have affected his brain.
He continued ‘’It’s true I’m not running for the second time in office but it’s also true that we don’t have an elected  president of ANTP for this period and we can’t allow a vacuum, more so  that I’m yet to officially handover. For him to recognize me as the past president, his brain should be able to tell him that I’m  the most  senior person of the association for now. Apart from that, I’m an automatic member of the Board of Trustees, and member of National Executive Council.
The interest is for us to have a credible election. The issue in ANTP, leadership is not what to discuss now because it’s in court and there will be judgment on 30th January. More so, remember that Elesho belongs to Victor Ashaolu faction.

As the year begins with lots of people engaging themselves in one sphere of entertainment and others, divas in the make-believe world are also increasing on a daily basis.
