The 49-year-old popular Yoruba actor reportedly died in the early hours of today, Sunday, May 14, 2023, in his residence.

Veteran film director and producer, Tunde Ola-Yusuf confirmed the passing via his Facebook page on Sunday afternoon.

"Rest in peace. May God give the family and close associates the fortitude to bear the loss,” he wrote.

The deceased celebrated his birthday just over a week ago, precisely Friday, May 5.
