Veteran actor, Adedeji Aderemi, who is popular as Olofaina, has died. Aged 73, the stage and screen actor and producer died yesterday.
His colleague, Saidi Balogun, and later, actress Foluke Daramola, announced his passing on their social media handles.
Reacting in an Instagram post, Daramola said she takes solace in the fact that Olofaina lived a good life and was happy and was relatively fulfilled.
He began his acting career on stage and in 1972, and floated the Olofaina Theatre Troupe with the likes of Gbolagade Akinpelu and the late Oyetunji of Esinnla.
The last time Olofaina, who featured in the 1989 home video by the late Alade Aromire, titled, Ekun, was in the news was in June 2021, when he tried to intervene in the matter between the comedienne Damilola Adekoya, aka Princess, and the now convicted, Omiyinka Olarenwaju aka Baba Ijesha.
Burial arrangement for the veteran actor will be as announced by the family.
