Veteran Yoruba actress Folake Aremu, popularly known as “Orisabunmi” has died.

She was 60 years old.

President of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, Mr Bolaji Amusan, aka Mr Latin, confirmed she died on Tuesday night.

“She died last night sir,” Mr Latin said.

Another senior TAMPAN member, Mr Tunde Ola-Yusuff also announced the death in a Facebook post.

“She left without a goodbye. The sudden death of Mrs Folake Aremu (ORISABUNMI) has been announced.

“Really a shock on everyone. Iya Oosa, may God rest your Soul among the righteous,” Ola Yusuff wrote.

Born on October 10, 1960, in Ilu Ola, Kwara State, Orisabunmi became popular in the 80s TV series “Arelu” starring her then husband, Jimoh Aliu and others like Fadeyi Oloro.

Jimoh and Folake Aliu had a very rocky marriage and the two were separated long before Aworo died in September, 2020.
