Few days after the Nigerian entertainment industry mourned the passing of Baba Sala, another comedian, Ola Omonitan, popularly known as Ajimajasan, who dominated the stage at the same era of the deceased star, has passed on at the age of 80.
The close colleague of Baba Sala succumbed to his protracted illness in his home in Ibadan.
Punch reports that the actor had, earlier last week, been admitted at the University College Hospital, Ibadan for age-related ailment, but was released on Monday.
Deji Bobade, the Public Relations Officer at the UCH, disclosed that the family brought him to the hospital early on Thursday but the doctor who attended to him confirmed that he was dead.
He said, “Ajimajasan was receiving treatment at the hospital ward for a few days but he was discharged on Monday. He was bought back early today (Thursday) but after being examined, the doctor told the family that he was brought in dead.”
The late comedian was a regular feature at the then NTV Ibadan comedy show series several decades ago competing for fame and popularity with Baba Sala.
