TAMPAN sets up fund to cater for sick members

Bolaji Amusan, president of Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), has stated that the association has started an endowment fund to cater to the wellbeing of its members.

According to NAN, Amusan, who is popularly known as Mr Latin, disclosed this on Friday during the opening ceremony of the conference of Nigerian arts and films (CONAF) held in Abeokuta.

He stated that the era of going on social media to seek help for members in need is over, and the fund will cater to ailing members.

The ace actor also disclosed that the structure of the endowment fund was premised on strict contractual obligations and rules.

“The fund is to serve as rescue fund for the treatment of any of our ailing members, instead of exposing such and begging for assistance on social media,” he said.

Amusan disclosed that the fund will assist to create exposure for budding talents and promote creativity through capacity building and sharing of new knowledge.

THEWILL writes that other film stars present at the conference include Jide Kosoko, Adebayo Salami (Oga Bello), Dele Odule, Tunbosun Odunsi, Yemi Solade, Fausat Balogun ( Madam Saje), Ebun Oloyede (Olaiya Igwe).
