Nigeran comedian, Ogunbayo Oluwakayode better known as Pastor Jerosi has narrated how he discovered that embattled actor, Baba Ijesha, and comedienne, Damilola Adekoya a.k.a Princess, were an item.
According to the comedian who was the last defence witness in the controversial alleged sexual assault case in the sitting at the Special Offences Court in Ikeja area of Lagos, he worked with Baba Ijesha for over 15 years in the entertainment industry.
He said he also worked with Princess after she called into one of the shows he anchored “Orisun” and requested to work with him.
Narrating how he got to know Princess and Baba Ijesha were dating, he told the court,
“Sometime in April 2015, Princess called Baba Ijesha, then I was with him, and she said she had a surprise for him. We had just finished a program in Ogun, and we were heading to Ltv for another, but Baba Ijesha insisted that we visit Princess and see what the surprise was. So I drove Baba Ijesha to Princess’ house somewhere in Aguda Surulere, and Princess was already waiting for him when we got there alongside a man and an aged woman who happened to be her mother. So Baba Ijesha got down from the car and greeted the old woman while I remained inside the car.”
” After a while, Baba Ijesha came out from the house in the old woman’s company, and I heard the old woman say,’ please take care of Damilola. I know she can be stubborn.”
“I had always had my guesses about Baba Ijesha and Princess, but I wasn’t sure, but on seeing this, It seemed as though Baba Ijesha had gone for an introduction. So when Baba Ijesha got into the car, I finally popped the question, ” are you dating Princess?”
“Jokingly, Baba Ijesha said he was dating Princess, but she was taking the relationship too far”
Pastor Jerosi said he warned Baba Ijesha about his relationship with Princess, but he didn’t listen to him.
Although Princess was absent in court, her lawyer dismissed the testimony and said it was not relevant to the case because he wasn’t there when Baba Ijesha allegedly molested a minor on April 19, 2021.
The case has been adjourned till June 6.
