Popular actor, Prince Jide Kosoko, has described as unfortunate, the death of Yoruba actor, Lekan Oladipupo, better known as Gorgio Lekinson in some movies.
Kosoko noted in an interview on Thursday that his colleagues least expected the thespian’s demise, especially “when we felt he was getting better.”
Lekinson, a gifted actor, died on Wednesday January 25,2012 in Osogbo, Osun State of heart-related ailment.
Kosoko, who said the deceased had been battling with the heart-ailment for some time, prayed God to continue watching over the rest of them.
He noted that since death is an inevitable end for all men, there is nothing anybody can do whenever it comes.
Kosoko, however, prayed for long life among members of the industry in view of the deaths recorded in the industry in the recent past.
He said, “The death of Lekinson is disastrous. He died at 5pm on Wednesday January 25,2012 as colleagues were taking him to the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, Osun State.”
Another actor, Mr. Bolaji Amusan, popularly called Mr. Latin, stated that Lekinson’s demise came as a shock to members of the Yoruba Nollywood genre.
He notes that he was a fine actor who would be sourly missed by all his colleagues.
Latin said, ‘‘His death is shocking. He was a very good actor and brother. We will all miss him.’’
Many watchers of Yoruba films will miss the actor who usually reeled out names of major cities of the world in a bid to fleece victims whenever he was playing the role of a fraudster.
