Only a while ago, Nollywood was faced with another tragedy after losing a popular actor and scriptwriter, Gbenga Ajumoko.
The actor reportedly passed away months after battling with two chronic ailments. The actor, who was from Ijebu, Ogun State, was said to have been hospitalized for over six months after he was diagnosed.
He was being treated at a hospital in Sagamu, Remo in Ogun state. According to reports, Ajumoko was diagnosed with kidney failure and diabetes disease. It was also reported that the actor was earlier diagnosed with hypertension, which led to the failure of his kidneys.
