Baba Suwe started acting at 18 when he dropped out of secondary school, and then he was in form four. 

He developed the passion when Baba Mero and his group came to the Children’s boarding school in Osogbo to act. After watching them, he got drums and other musical instruments, picked some guys in his streets like Mufitau Ilumoka, Sola Taiwo, and others, and formed a theater group. 

That was what metamorphosed into the brand ‘Baba Suwe’ today. His first show was at Amuto playing ground, Lagos Island. Although it was a free show, he was happy because it recorded a huge success.

In 2011, Baba Suwe alleged cocaine trafficking by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. This allegation was described as false and defamatory by the Lagos high court of law ruling. His solicitor was the late Bamidele Aturu, a Nigerian lawyer and human rights activist. 

Personal Life

He has three children – Junior Ominida, Halimat Omidina, and Okiki Omidina. After the death of his wife, his step-daughter, Omolara Kareem, accused him of killing her mother. 

According to her, “She [Monsurat] died of high blood pressure due to the squabbles she had with her hubby.” He has since re-married.

In 2017, the veteran actor Baba Suwe suffered a stroke and could not move around since then. He blamed his health challenges on his detainment by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
