Nollywood actor Femi Adebayo needs no introduction in the entertainment industry. The son of veteran actor Adebayo Salami has carved a niche for himself using his father’s influence and has become a force to be reckoned with.
It could be recalled that a video went viral some months back showing how Femi slapped his father in a hotel room. The actor has openly come out to reveal why he did that to his father.
According to Punch, Femi disclosed that that was the craziest thing he has ever done but as an actor he must be ready to play unbelievable roles. He added that the moment they were on set, he did not not see him as his father but a colleague.
Femi said: “I have been presented with scripts where I had to slap my father on set and I must do it as an actor. He has slapped me on set too countless times. The moment we are acting, I don’t see him as my father anymore; I see him as a colleague and we need to interpret our roles very well. He trained me and he is my boss in the industry. He has taught me not to fear whenever I come across a bigger actor or someone like him on set. But the moment the director says stop, I prostrate to him and apologise.”
The talented actor also spoke how he and his father supported an upcoming act, Jigan. In the ‘sho mo age mi ni’ video, Femi was seen disrespecting his father.

He said: “Jigan is more like a boy to us. When he came out with the trend, we felt we could do a skit to endorse it. The irony was in asking my biological father if he knew my age.”
