Ace actor and filmmaker, Yomi Fabiyi has debunked rumours of the death of Babatunde Omidina, a veteran movie star, better known as Baba Suwe.
There were unconfirmed reports on social media in the early hours of Friday that the veteran Yoruba actor had died.
However in a short video, Fabiyi refuted the claims, revealing that he just spoke with him a few minutes ago.
Fabiyi wondered why anyone would derive joy in peddling falsehood about the death of others when they are still alive.
“I want to use this medium to dispel the rumour circulating. It is pretty unfortunate that I have to still come out and do this again. I don’t really understand what perpetrators of such falsehood on social media gain by doing that,” he said.
“It is not right, knowing fully well the status of the person in question. Please desist from doing such. Baba Suwe is alive, hale and hearty. Please stop doing this nonsense. I just spoke with him less than two minutes ago and he is doing fine. He asked me to pray for you and to stop such act.”
