Emmanuel Adejumo, one of the sons of the late ace comic actor, Moses Olaoluwa Olusanya Adejumo aka Baba Sala, has announced that his father’s burial date would be fixed soon. Emmanuel reportedly said this while addressing newsmen yesterday, adding that some of his children were just been aware of the demise of their father.
Baba Sala reportedly died in his sleep on Sunday night after taking his supper in Ilesa, Osun State.
Earlier confirming the death of the ace actor, the late actor’s media aid Isaac Haastrup said he died of old-age related sickness on Sunday night and that his remains had been deposited in the mortuary at Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex Annex, Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa.
Emmanuel said though his late father was not wealthy, but he was rich in the knowledge of God.
“Though he was not wealthy, he was rich in the knowledge of God and he had a wealth of experience. He would tell us that his father did not encourage him to be a comedian; that he didn’t have anybody to advise him when he was growing up.
“He was a prayerful man. He was a Godly person; he never missed morning and evening prayers. If there was anything he was expecting or any trip he wanted to undertake, he would instruct all of us to pray and fast for nothing bad to happen.”, Emmanuel said.
The late actor had been battling with acute stroke for a few years before his death on Sunday night.
