Nollywood actor, Olumide Bakare is dead.

The veteran thespian who had been battling with lung and heart related illnesses for several months, passed on in Ibadan this morning. Fondly called, Chief KoKo of Oluwa lambe house, he had earlier on his admission to UCH been diagnosed with a respiratory disorder problem before he died Saturday morning. He did not fully recover from the sickness that kept him indoors for months.
