Sam Ajibola aka Spiff of The Johnsons

Actor Sam Ajibola has finally admitted that his son shares a resemblance with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The movie star popularly known for playing the character Spiff on African Magic’s The Johnsons said this in a recent interview on Channels Television while explaining why he sued a blogger for suggesting that Obasanjo is the biological father of his son.

Sam Ajibola pointed out that the speculations started after a photo of himself, his wife, their son and Obasanjo went viral.

He said: “The picture that caused the stir was the picture with me and my wife with the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

“I’m the Youth Ambassador to the Youth Development Centre of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library. So I have a relationship with him. He is a huge mentor to my life.

“And so from time to time, I visit him. After I had my son, I took him there to see him. And people started assuming things. They said, ‘Okay, my wife was a secretary to the former President.’ It moved from that to, ‘Oh! He [Obasanjo] is the true father’ of my son.

My wife’s fidelity is unquestionable, she was never Obasanjo’s secretary, Sam Ajibola clears air

“I won’t deny it, I’m saying this live on air. In that picture, my son does look like him there. But there are circumstances around it. And it’s still a picture. It’s a still picture. It’s a second. It’s a moment of which my son was just waking up from sleep when we arrived. So he was just booting and he had those eyebags. Those eyebags made him look like the former President. And people were claiming as if they were 100 per cent sure that the former President was the true father of my son.”
