Veteran Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko has postponed his 70th birthday celebration due to the economic hardship in Nigeria.

Kosoko, who celebrated his 70th birthday on January 12, expressed gratitude towards his colleagues and fans for proposing the idea of honouring his contributions to the industry while he is still alive.

He revealed that after consultation with them, they unanimously decided to postpone the celebration, primarily due to the dire circumstances confronting the nation and its citizens.

He wrote:

 “I want to use this opportunity to offer my sincere appreciation to my colleagues who came up with the idea of celebrating me for my contributions to industry growth and development our industry while I am still alive and kicking. This also falls within the year of my 70th birthday.

“It is my sincere prayer that they will all remain relevant in all areas of human endeavours they find themselves in.

“I have discussed with them, and they reasoned, that the celebration should be put on hold, basically because of the current situation in the country and what the people are going through.

“I am very sure that very soon, the challenges facing the country will be over and we will all be happy for it. I am putting it on hold because of the masses, of which I am part of. Thank you all for your understanding!”
