Actors, actresses mourn as Fadeyi Oloro passes on

204

Veteran actor, Ojo Arowosafe popularly known as Fadeyi Oloro is dead.

The actor died on Tuesday following a protracted kidney failure that kept him in and out of the hospital for more than three years.

Per Seconds News gathered that the actor, who was known for his traditionalist role in many of his movies, had been reaching out to kind-hearted Nigerians for financial assistance for sometime but none seemed to have come his way.

Before his death, the Arelu-famed actor was said to have struggled to cope with life as his daughter revealed on an Instagram live session days back that his father was served quit notice and would be forced to leave his current home if urgent financial assistance didn’t come his way.

His death came barely three weeks after a London-based Pastor, Tunde Adegboyega, pledged to give N3 million to the ailing actor after he saw his video on Instagram where he could barely mutter words.

His daughter, who joined an Instagram live session with popular OAP Daddy Freeze recently, shared details of her father’s predicament.

She revealed that her father’s landlord served them an eviction notice for failing to pay his rent, the amount she did not specify.

She said in January that doctors at the University College Hospital (UCH) in Ibadan diagnosed her dad with kidney-related ailments, among other things.

Some of veteran actors and colleagues of the deceased who spoke with Per Seconds News on Tuesday evening had denied the actor’s death as they claimed they were yet to be briefed.

But a call put across to Saidi Balogun for confirmation was returned with a simple text message that reads “Fadeyi is gone”.

Further information pieced together revealed that the deceased actor made frantic efforts to reach out to some prominent Nigerians to save his life but the help came rather too late.

The President of Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Bolaji Amusan, could not be reached as of the time of this report as his line was busy.

Some of his colleagues, especially the junior ones have flooded the social media space with pictures of Fadeyi as they lamented his death and prayed for his family.
