Veteran Yoruba actor Prince Adewale Adeyemo passed away on Monday morning after a short illness.
His fellow actor Kunle Afod confirmed the sad news on his Instagram page.
Afod shared a photo of the deceased, writing: “Well, God, you know Prince Adewale Adyemo best in peace. He passed away early this morning after a short illness. God comfort all his family, friends and colleagues. “
This comes just hours after the Yoruba film industry paid tribute to the late Murphy Afrabi, who passed away on May 14, 2023.
Veteran actor Adeyemo was diagnosed with lung, liver, and kidney problems in 2021. He successfully operated on through fundraising.
Many Nollywood actors, including Yinka Quadri, Fathia Williams, Kemi Korede, Itele and others, have expressed their condolences on social media.
