Nollywood was on Tuesday morning, thrown into mourning, following the news of the death of popular Yoruba actress and producer, Bisi Komolafe, who died at the University College Hospital (UCH) in the early hours of Tuesday.
It was gathered that Bisi stayed with her aunt in Ibadan during the period of her sickness and was said to have lost her mother about five years ago.
While reacting to Bisi’s demise, her aunt said she was yet to come to terms with the fact that Bisi was dead and had been deposited at the morgue.“I have lost a beautiful girl. I have lost a star that we are all looking up to in the family. Everybody loved her because of her simple lifestyle.
She gave me a pink gown few days back that I should wear it on (Tuesday), but I never knew she was telling me she was going to die. I don’t believe she’s dead. I know she can still be raised from the dead,” she said.Bisi’s sister, Bukky, was also pensive as tears rolled down her face uncontrollably. She said she was with her before she died; saying Bisi never gave up even at the point of death.
“I was with her and I never believed she was going to die, I had gone to several churches to pray and I was told that she won’t die. It is painful because she died with many unfulfilled dreams. It is more painful because she died without any child.
" According to Bisi’s aunt’s husband, who gave his name as Daddy Pelumi, the late actress would be buried on Friday, January 4 after the necessary burial arrangements had been concluded.
“Her father attends a catholic church and he has told us that she would be given a proper burial at the Catholic Church, Oke Padre, Salvation Army way, Ibadan”.
Some of the Nollywood actors and actresses who paid a condolence visit to Bisi’s house on Tuesday include, Yinka Quadri, Muyiwa Ademola, Remi Surutu, Akeem Balogun ( Olasco Films), Adekola Tijani ( Kamilu Compo) Majester, Yomi Fabiyi and others.
The actress was survived by her father, grandmother and siblings.
