Commenting on the deaths in Nollywood industry, popular comedy actor, Bolaji Amusan, otherwise called Mr. Latin, said everybody would definitely die someday, he noted that there was nothing anyone could do when death comes.
According to him, “People die daily. Only God knows the number of people that have died globally between the last day in 2012 and the New Year. But because of our closeness to some people and for the fact that they are famous, we tend to express great loss when they die. The popularity of dramatists and the love people have for them often make their fans lament whenever any of them dies.’’
‘‘It is the love they have for actors and actresses that make them think so. Death is inevitable. But it is so sad that while people are rejoicing for the New Year, friends, fans and colleagues of Komolafe are mourning. She was a great and talented actress, very promising,’’ he noted.
