Another popular Yoruba actor dies

Less than 24 hours after the death of seasoned actor, poet and journalist, Adebayo Faleti, was announced, the Nigerian film industry has been thrown into mourning, following the passage of another actor, Olurotimi Ayinde, a.k.a Abu Olododo, in Abeookuta, capital of Ogun State, on Sunday night. A friend and colleague of Ayinde, Waheed Ijaduade, brought his departure to the attention of the public in a statement posted on Facebook on Monday. According to Ijaduade, “We chatted for a while on that night. He even asked me about the outcome of a summit that I attended in Lagos. We talked about other things and we agreed to meet on Monday or Tuesday before I went to bed. I went to his residence to see him the following day (Monday) as agreed only to learn that he was dead.” The actor has since been buried according to Muslim rites.
