The experienced Nollywood actor Yekini Oyedele, known as Baba Legba, is dead. The actor died in the early hours of Monday, September 7.
Before his death, Baba Legba was known to have played comic roles with Baba Sala.
Actor Adejumo Boisala Emmanuel, who announced his death, wrote
“Alhaji Yekini Oyedele, better known as Babalegba, died in the early morning hours of that day (exactly at midnight).
He joined the theater group Alawada in 1974 and played comic roles with Baba Sala, sometimes playing Babalawo, a police officer, but mostly from one comic role to another. He was a family friend and a supporter of my father until his death. His name was Ikubolaje on a Sunday before he went to Mecca and became a Muslim.
Personally, he also contributed a lot to my success.
May your soul rest in perfect peace, baba.”
