Abimbola Kazeem

Yoruba actor and comedian, Kazeem Abimbola, popularly known as Jigan Babaoja, has revealed that he survived a ghastly accident that left him bloodied.

The actor shared his experience in a post on Instagram on Monday.


β€œThank you Allah πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ I will forever be grateful oh lord ! And my instinct didn’t want to step out of my house today πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ but am happy that I am alive !

The actor is popular for the viral β€œSho mo age mi” slang.


In an interview with punchng.com in 2018, Kazeem said the slang came up when he was with friends, arguing about the real age of actresses in the movie industry.

β€œI have actually done several skits but it’s just that God had mandated that I would become popular with this β€˜Sho mo age mi’ slang. I was on a movie location with some of my friends when we started talking about our actresses that were celebrating their 40th birthday; we said that some of them were either not up to 40 years or they were above the age.

β€œThat was how we started arguing and I cited myself as an example, asking them if they knew if I was up to 40 years old. That’s how I started asking them if they knew my age in Yoruba. From there, something urged me to do a skit about it and that’s how it went viral,” he said.
