Nollywood, this morning, lost one of Yoruba film industry’s prominent actors, Olumide Bakare, aged 65. The actor who became famous from a TV series, Oluwa Langbe Lodge, was said to have passed on after a protracted illness.  
  “He had a successful surgery and after the surgery, he talked to people and told

them he was fine. But two hours later, he passed on. It is very painful because I had actually been wishing him a quick recovery,” said Mufu Onifade, a member of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTAP).  “Bakare is someone who was a hundred percent committed to the theatre profession. He started on stage and then from there, went on TV, did radio and then film which was where he settled.”

 The actor was reported to have suffered from cardiac arrest few months ago.
