Veteran actress, Orisabunmi, is dead
Veteran Yoruba actress Folake Aremu, popularly known as Orisabunmi, has died.
The 60 years old died four four months after ex-husband Jimoh Aliu, better known as Aworo.
President of the Theatre Arts And Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) Bolaji Amusan, aka Mr Latin, confirmed she died on Tuesday night in a message seen by Qed.ng on Wednesday morning.
“She died last night sir,” Mr Latin said.
Another senior TAMPAN member Tunde Ola-Yusuff also announced the death in a Facebook post.
“She left without a goodbye. The sudden death of Mrs Folake Aremu (ORISABUNMI) has been announced.
“Really a shock on everyone. Iya Oosa, may God rest your Soul among the righteous,” Ola Yusuff wrote.
