Bisi Komolafe, the Yoruba movie actress, who died in the early hours of 1 January at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, western Nigeria, was buried amid tears Friday morning. Her corpse was received by her family and colleagues at the UCH mortuary, after which it was taken for a funeral mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Oke Padre in Ibadan. She was then buried at a cemetery a few metres away from the mortuary.It was gathered, that the late Bisi, was in and out of the hospital for about three months after she had a miscarriage, which resulted in complications.
President of the Association of Theatre Arts Practitioners, ANTP, Prince Jide Kosoko, who confirmed Bisi’s death to Entertainment Cafe, described it as an ill-timed development. According to him, “I got to know of her illness on 31 December when Yinka Quadri called me that there is a need for us to raise funds for her treatment abroad. But unfortunately, we got the shocker a day after that she was dead. It is sad that this is coming on a New Year day.”
