The talented actor passed away from his condition just a few steps from achieving full health and wellbeing after a seven-year battle with stroke.
A renowned figure in the Yoruba cinema business who had devoted many years of his life to it was Musiliu Ajikanle.
The experienced actor had recently struggled with a stroke, which had negatively impacted both his health and his ability to earn a living.
Amidst his struggles, a glimmer of light emerged as Pastor Agbala Gabriel, a well-known philanthropist and spiritual leader, reached out to the ailing actor. Pastor Agbala, who had a reputation for helping those in need, visited Musiliu Ajikanle at his residence and saw the gravity of his situation.
