Veteran Nigerian comic actor, Moses Olaiya Adejumo, better known as Baba Sala, is dead.
The iconic dramatist died on Sunday at his house in Ilesa, Osun state.
Baba Sala’s death was made known by Isaac Haastrup, his media aide.
According to Haastrup, Sala died of “old-age related sickness”.
“He came to church two Sundays ago and he was the one that said the benediction. Baba has gone to be with the Lord and he will be missed by many people including his fans,” he said.
The comedian’s remains have been deposited at the morgue in Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa.
The late 82-year-old veteran actor recently suffered a reported stroke and asked Nigerians for financial assistance.
