Veteran Actor Fadeyi Oloro Is Dead

Veteran Nigerian actor, Ojo Arowosafe, popularly known as Fadeyi Oloro, is dead.

The Ekiti-born actor, who rose to prominence during the 80s and late 90s for his trademarked herbalist character, died on Tuesday afternoon after a long battle with kidney-related ailments, among other things.

He was aged 66.

Arowosafe, who played Fadeyi Oloro in a Yoruba TV series titled ‘Arelu’ in the 80s, had been ill for over three years before his shocking death.

His daughter, Fasunwon Bidemi oluwafunke, confirmed the sad development on Tuesday night.

Arowosafe was born on September 15, 1957, in Igbara Odo, Ekiti, and became a household name during the cinematic era for his antagonistic roles in Yoruba movies accompanied by his ever-vibrant recitation of chants and incantations.
