The Yoruba arm of Nollywood has been thrown into a deep abyss of mourning as yet another actor has passed away.
Popular actors Kunle Afod and Ronke Oshodi broke the tragic news of Ademola Adeyemo’s death on Instagram.
According to Afod, the late actor died in the early hours of Monday, May 22, after a brief illness.
Adeyemo reportedly battled with three strange ailments (damage in his lung, liver, and kidney) in 2021.
Kunle Afod wrote: “Hmmmm. God you know best. RIP Prince Ademola Adeyemo. He passed on early hour of today after a brief illness. God will comfort all his family friends and colleagues.”
Ronke Oshodi also shared a photo of her late colleague and mourned the painful loss.
“Hummmm oga bayi òòò We love you but God loves you more. Rest in peace PRICE ADEWALE ADEYEMO.”
Netizens mourn Ademola Adeyemo’s death
While colleagues of the late actor mourned him, some netizens also expressed shock over his death.
Other people, however, called out Yoruba actors for refusing to help the late Adeyemo as he was reportedly sick for a while, not briefly, as Kunle Afod announced.
