Veteran Nollywood Actor, Yinka Ogundaisi Is D£@d After Battling Sickness

Veteran actor and filmmaker Yinka Ogundaisi have departed after a long battle with paralysis.

The d£@th of the actor was confirmed by a statement by Ropo Ewenla, a member of the Ibadan Film Circle (IFC), a group the late filmmaker belonged to before his d£@th.

Ewenla wrote:

“Today, this morning, one phase of history came to an end. Erin ti wo. The elephant rises no more. Yinka Ogundaisi bid this world farewell at dawn. It was Kate Adepegba who dropped the bomb on my lap. I called Uncle Yinka’s number to confirm and rudely, it was so.”

Yinka underwent paralysis on his legs, a condition for which he sought financial aid to undergo surgery.

Before his death, he was also a writer, director of films, TV and radio programmes.

He was the next actor to play the legendary Sango in the film Oba Koso after the late Duro Ladipo.

He was attributed with resuscitating and repackaging the longest-running Yoruba TV programme Feyikogbon.

Ogundaisi was also a member of the cast of The Village Headmaster.

He wrote the crime fiction novel ‘The Charmed Lock’ based on African hypnotism.
