The Nigerian film industry is currently mourning the death of veteran actor, Prince Femi Oyewumi aka Laditi who reportedly passed away on Thursday.

The 51-year-old filmmaker was said to have been suffering from chronic back pain for some months now and had a relapse that led to his being rushed to the hospital.

Prince Kehinde Adegoke Oyewumi who is the young brother of Laditi confirmed the news of his death. In a Facebook post, Adegoke shared the news of the late entertainer’s death by sharing his photos with a sad caption:

He wrote: “Eniba magbe ko bami daro aro, eniba maluko ko bami daro osun,……… ” Eniba mo boda mi, Omo’ba Femi Oyewumi ( Laditi ) kowa bami sedaro enimi. Sunre o, omo Ajagungbade onidugbe. Good Knight”

When translated, it means: “Anyone that I wish to stay in the morning, may anyone who wants me to sleep in osun,……… ” whoever knows my motorcycle, my loved ones, I wish him well, help me sleep well. Rest in peace, the son of ajagungbade, onidugbe. Good night.”

Laditi had featured in popular Yoruba films like Koto Orun, Aye Toto, Ija Eleye, to name a few. Laditi’s death is coming on the heels of actress Emilia Dike who died a few days ago.
