Nollywood Actress Bisi Komolafe Laid To Rest (PHOTOS)

The funeral ceremony for the late Bisi Komolafe, the Yoruba movie actress, who died in the early hours of 1 January at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Nigeria, commenced this morning Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9AM amid tears.

The funeral mass took place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Oke Padre in Ibadan. She was then buried at a cemetery a few metres away from the mortuary.

Most of Bisi’s friends and colleagues are still shocked over her death. Those who managed to speak described the death as a big blow to the industry, considering the fact that she was one of the most promising and versatile actresses.

One of her best friends in the industry, Titi Osinowo, said: “I’m not in the right frame of mind to talk about Bisi now. I still can’t still believe she is gone. Wait a minute, does it mean we won’t see Bisi again?”

Bisi’s publicist, Faith Irabor, said: “She was like my sister and she was in her prime. I’m a woman and could be a victim of what happened to her. This is very sad indeed.”

Some of the movies she starred include Igboro Ti Daru, Aye Ore Meji, Ogbe Inu, Akanmole, Alakada and Akun.

Fellow actor, Saheed Balogun, has disclaimed the stories making the rounds that Komolafe’s death was as a result of fetish practices and husband snatching scandals.

‘You or I’, says, “I find it very absurd that anyone would attribute the death or illness of any Yoruba actor to juju. Many people die every day as a result of various ailments but the reason behind the hullabaloo over the death of a star is just because we are popular. It has nothing to do with jazz (evil forces) and no one knows the day he/she will die besides God. It is just sad that she died at a time when she was about to blow in the industry and fans looked forward to more works from her.”
