Again, death visits Nollwood as Yoruba actor, Suebebe, passes on


The Nigerian movie industry has lost another veteran as veteran Yoruba actor, Dayo Adewunmi, aka Suebebe, is dead.

He was said to have passed away on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, as announced by popular cleric, Ademola Amusan, aka Agbala Gabriel, who had been taking care of him.

Suebebe had for some time lamented about a protracted illness that kept him in a bad shape.

He died in the early hours of Wednesday at an undisclosed hospital in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Announcing Suebebe’s death, Agbala Gabriel wrote on social media: “It’s a pity, Baba Suebebe died at hospital this morning. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.”

‘In a rare sober mood, Suebebe had, in 2023, appealed to Nigerians for forgiveness over his reckless lifestyle when he was younger and sought financial assistance on social media to foot his medical bills.

While seeking assistance from the public, the actor said he has been in the Yoruba movie industry for decades without any achievement.

He noted that he had no house or car and reiterated that he lived in poverty.
