Olurotimi Isaiah Ayinde, famously known as Abu Olododo is dead.
Ayinde died, on Monday morning, in Abeokuta, Ogun State after a brief illness.
His demise is coming barely two days after the news of the death of veteran actor and poet, Adebayo Faleti, who died in Ibadan.
His colleague and friend, Ijaduade Waheed Abolaji, who confirmed the development on Monday, said the late actor would be greatly missed.
The bereaved actor told newsmen that he had a brief phone conversation with the deceased on Sunday night.
He said, “We chatted for a while on that night. He even asked me about the outcome of a summit that I attended in Lagos. We talked about other things and we agreed to meet on Monday or Tuesday before I went to bed. I went to his residence to see him the following day (Monday) as agreed only to learn that he was dead.”
According to the actor, Ayinde’s co-tenants had decided to open the door of his room when he failed to show up in the morning and found him in a sitting position and lifeless.
“He never told me that he was sick. He appeared to be quite healthy when I spoke with him on the phone. His death remains a mystery to me,” Ijaduade said.
The actor has since been buried according to Muslim rites. He was aged 51 and married with four children.
