“Nollywood actor Ibrahim Yekini, popularly known as Itele D Icon, has taken to social media to react to the widespread usage of his character, Gbogunmi, from the hit movie ‘Jagun Jagun.’
In a light-hearted and humorous post, Itele expressed how his character’s distinctive approach has been widely adopted by content creators. The most recent usage is for advocating justice for the late singer Mohbad.
Reacting to this in one of his posts, Itele stated, ‘#justiceformohbad, This character of mine has been through a lot 😂😂 #gbogunmi #jagunjagun #kesarithekingstillShowingincinemas.’

“‘Jagun Jagun,’ a film produced by actor Femi Adebayo, has been earning praise for its captivating storyline, compelling performances, and the skillful blend of humor and serious themes.
As previously reported by Naijalegit, Femi Adebayo, the lead actor and producer of ‘Jagun Jagun,’ expressed his concern about the recognition received by his colleagues, Lateef Adedimeji and Ibrahim Yekini.
The movie, featuring a talented ensemble cast, including Lateef Adedimeji (Gbotija) and Ibrahim Yekini (Gbogunmi), has garnered significant attention and accolades from viewers.
However, it seems that Femi Adebayo’s portrayal of Ogundiji, despite being the lead character and producer, hasn’t received the same level of recognition as his co-stars.
In what appears to be a lighthearted social media post, Femi Adebayo shared his thoughts on the matter. He wrote, ‘Saving kings and men isn’t an easy job – if a man does well, we should reward him. I personally think the way you people don’t rate Ogundiji calls for alarm! Ogundiji himself ‼️ The only man that can eat 9 snails at once! Ehn, if it’s easy – you should try it too. Every time, Gbotija! Gbogunmi! Do you think becoming a mighty warrior of might and caliber doesn’t come with sacrifices? Ogundiji is someone’s father too! He deserves justice for the bad names you people are calling him! Besides, If you were Ogundiji – wouldn’t you have done the same things he did? Subscribe to Netflix and see why even Ogundiji deserves his accolades! OGUN YAA ‼️‼️'”
