Internet sensation and actor, Oluwatoyin Bayegun, popularly known as Woli Arole, has called for the need to see and care for people who are living with mental illness.
The comedian, on Friday, October 10, had disguised himself as a mentally challenged person and begged for alms at Ikeja for some time.
He said: “I was just walking down Ikeja today going to meet people and I saw different reactions of rejection and all of that, they didn’t know it was Woli Arole, I saw different reactions and I must say even people should also do well to see and care for people who are mentally unstable in our society."
The comedian stressed that he decided to put up the act to experience and show how mentally challenged persons are treated in the society.
Woli Arole said further, “I am using this as an image of the mental state of so many, some people are not even dressed like this but they are going through a lot in their mental state.
