Gbadebo starred by Odunlade Adekola, a local newspaper vendor suffering from sort of entitlement syndrome. He is not satisfied with his fortune in life and considers his present status and a lot of the people he interacts with daily to be less than him. He blames his lack of ambition and success that pervades his environment, but the reality is that he is a lazy man that prefers to spends his days complaining and putting down the honest efforts of those around him.

Gbadebo somehow lands a position as driver to Morayo a young wealthy lady, played by Adunni Ade. However his high level of indiscipline makes it impossible for him to work for long in this new job before getting into some serious trouble. However, he finally made it, and things changed for him when he met his wealthy biological father.
