Odunlade Adekola’s passion as a professional Yoruba movie actor to say the least has paid off for him.

His steady rise to fame is attributable to dedication, doggedness and his desire to always excel.

There is practically no new movie that the fledgling heroine face does not adorn the poster as His face on movie jackets among marketers is considered as “Hot Cake”.

However, it is no longer news that the talented entertainer has been cut off the multi-million naira Globacom Ambassadorship deal, what is new is the real reasons the talented thespian lost out of the deal.

According to source, Odunlade contract with Glo ended and they parted on convivial.

Findings by revealed that the prolific filmmaker have been found wanting in his roles as Glo Ambassadors hence the refusal to renew his contract.

We learnt that apart from seeing Odunlade’s face in couple of Globacom press commercials, it has been lost on quite a number of people that Odunlade was still a Globacom Ambassador for some time now.

Apart from always being there when the company needs him, Globacom expect the highly revered actor to constantly remind Nigerians that he is still a Globacom Ambassador from his activities as well as promoting the company at every turn. Squealed a close source.

The close source further revealed that, Odunlade’s colleague in the Yoruba arm of Nollywood, Funke Akindele popularly known as Jenifa is known to give out Glo souvenirs to people at every opportunity.

She also promotes the brand on social media like Facebook, Twitter and most importantly in her movies i.e Return of Jenifa, the attributes we gathered Odunlade Adekola lacks.

Odunlade try his best in order not to put the wrong foot forward but to Globacom management, image is everything.

Further digs revealed that Odunlade’s lack of sound and proper education affect his ethical behavior, though he has eventually put in for a degree course in university of Lagos.

His deficiency in English language and his inability to socialize and comport himself in corporate gathering plays a pivotal role in the lost of the Glo deal. An insider divulged.

Being a Globacom Ambassador comes with a lot of perks. Apart from the contract fee, the brand faces are paid when they are invited for Globacom events, especially outside their area of residence.

They are also paid allowances for taking part in Globacom commercials. When a commercial is being shot outside the country, apart from their allowances, they are flown with their managers on first-class to locations outside the country.

With the latest development, we learnt Odunlade is no longer experiencing happy moments these days.

According to the source, Odunlade has been lamenting to his close pals that his contract was supposed to be renewed, as his name appeared for new season according to the information he got months back.
