Yomi Obileye

Nigeria Movie Industry, Nollywood has lost yet another talent veteran actor Yomi Obileye. And contrarily to the rumors out there, the cause of death is not COVID-19 aka Coronavirus.

Comedian Gbenga Adeyinka took to social media account to announce the departure of the veteran actor when he shared a tribute. It was gathered that the late Obileye died in the early hours of Friday, April 24, 2020 from an undisclosed ailment.

Eulogising the actor, Gbenga Adeyinka wrote:

“If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane, we would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

Rest In Peace Uncle Yomi OBILEYE . Thanks for the memories. I can’t help but want to watch “HOSTAGES” again. Sleep well Egbon and May God give your family and fans the fortitude to bear the loss.”

Known for his role Tade Ogidan’s 1997 film ‘Hostages’ as well as the soap opera ‘Palace,’ he has acted alongside other veteran Nollywood stars like Liz Benson, Jide Kosoko, Antar Laniyan, Dayo Adeneye, Jide Alabi, Tunji Bamishigbin.

He also starred in “Head Gone” in which he played the character Dr. Smith. A comedy, “Head Gone” is a reflection of the globally accepted truism that a thin line separates sanity and insanity.

In 2020, the Nigerian film industry has lost stars like Pa Kasumu, Frank Dallas, Jennifer Omole and Rasheed Abu to mention but few.

May his soul rest in perfect peace,
