Veteran actor Jide Kosoko mourns the passing of Olofa Ina, a close colleague who passed away yesterday.
Kosoko expressed that the late veteran actor battled tirelessly, yet ultimately, it was in God’s hands, wishing for his peaceful rest.
Further reflecting, Jide Kosoko lamented that with Olofa Ina’s departure, the Yoruba language in the movie industry has suffered a profound loss, leaving behind an irreplaceable void that will be challenging to fill.
At last, olofa fire is gone. You fought back but God knows best. Ha baba yoruba is gone. No doubt the vacuum you left will surely be difficult to fill. Rest on High Chief Deji Aderemi. Sun re o.
