Veteran Nollywood actor, Femi Ogunrombi Papa Ajasco, is dead
Popular veteran Nollywood Actor, Femi Ogunrombi A.K.A Papa Ajasco is dead.
His death was confirmed by a theatre practitioner, Husseini Shaibu, via his Twitter handle on Sunday,
He wrote, “I have just been reliably informed that the ethnomusicologist, former Music Instructor with #NATIONALTROUPE and one time stand in for the ‘Papa Ajasco’ character on the popular #waleadenugaprod comic series ‘Papa Ajasco’ Mr. Femi Ogunrombi is dead.”
In our previous version of this report, we unintentionally used the image of Abiodun Ayoyinka, another Papa Ajasco, instead of that of the late Femi Ogunrombi. We regret the mix-up.
