Veteran and Popular Nollywood Actor , Adebayo Salami is celebrating his 65th birthday today.

Adebayo Salami popularly known by his stage name, Oga Bello, is a veteran Nigerian actor, filmmaker, movie producer and director. Albeit of Kwara descent, Salami was born on 9 May 1953 in Lagos State where he had both primary and secondary education.

He began his acting career in 1964 with a group called Young Concert Party, under the leadership of Ojo Ladipo, popularly known as Baba Mero.

After a few years, the group changed its name to Ojo Ladipo Theatre Group, and later metamorphosed into Awada Kerikeri Theatre Group. Following the demise of Ojo Ladipo in 1978, Salami took the mantle of leadership of the group, which brought him into the limelight.
