Nollywood Veteran Ojo Arowosafe, famously known as Fadeyi Oloro, has died at 66.

The Ekiti-born actor, who rose to prominence during the 80s and late 90s for his trademarked herbalist character, died on Tuesday evening after a long battle with kidney-related ailments, among other things.

The Yoruba movie icon had last month, through his son on an Instagram live session with popular OAP Daddy Freeze, begged Nigerians for help after the actor was served a six-month eviction notice over unpaid rent.

Subsequently, UK-based Nigerian pastor Tobi Adegboyega of Salvation Proclaimers Anointed Church, donated N3 million for Arowosafe’s treatment and other outstanding bills.

Fadeyi Oloro was born on September 15, 1957, in Igbara Odo, Ekiti, and became a household name during the cinematic era for his antagonistic roles in Yoruba movies accompanied by his ever-vibrant recitation of chants and incantations.
