One of the veteran actors in the Yoruba movie industry, Ahmed Odunla a.k.a Dento, has passed on. The actor died after a long battle with partial paralysis (stroke). He will be buried today (07/08/2012) according to Islamic rites.
It's really so sad how these guys who gave their all to a profession that has now become a money-spinner, die in abject poverty. I saw him a few years ago and was moved to tears; he looked unkempt and frail.
Rest in peace, Dento.
