Nollywood actress Ope Aiyeola has discredited claims she had a child in secret for veteran actor Babatunde Omidiran, a.k.a Baba Suwe.

Aiyeola who now lives in London in a chat with BBC Yoruba Service said she never had any romantic affair with the elderly Baba Suwe.

She said; “He is my boss and a kind man. “He used to cast me in a lot of roles when I started. And I am grateful to him”.

When she was asked about the man she ever had a crush for, she mentioned veteran Bollywood actor, Amitabh Bachchan, who is now 75 years old.


“I used to write him as a child, using the addresses she read on the jackets of Indian movies. Now I have a secret, I reach him on Facebook”.

Asked on the career path she would have trod, without venturing into acting.

She did not hesitate in her response. ” I would have loved to be a midwife or a child minder or surrogate mother”, she said.

Aiyeola, 41 next August, was born in Sagamu Ogun state. She is married to Babatunde David Olowolomo
