Foremost actor, Bayo Bankole popularly known as Boy Alinco has revealed in a post this morning how he quit smoking few years back. Before now, the actor was known to be a chain smoker, all thanks to a fan’s advice that motivated him to quit.
Reminiscing on how the change came about, the actor who now resides in America posted this on his facebook timeline: “I smoked ha !!! …. God is good, when I looked back then, I say Thank You Lord. Today Mark six years I stopped smoking. How did I stopped, a guy saw me in a party called “Alinco ! Alinco !! Alinco !!! …” I answered, he called the bar man “pls give my Broda 4 bottles of Gulder… (Turned to me) baba I appreciate you so much” I said thank you” and I brought out my pack of Benson cigarette, about to light a stick and he said to me …. “Baba you smoke ? This is not nice now u too much for this” and I said to him “Bros if Na because of Gulder, baba I go finish this four stick wey dey here, if I wake up tomorrow I fit no smoke again”. I woke up the following morning 18th of October 2010 and I never tasted cigarette till date …. To God be the glory”.
At the moment, Boy Alinco runs a radio programme called Afroville in America where he currently resides.
