Baba Sala died in his sleep – Son


One of the children of late Moses Adejumo, aka Baba Sala, Emmanuel, has shared an insider knowledge about the last hour of his deceased father.

The popular comedian, who hailed from Osun State, died on Sunday at aged 82.

Leading up to the late ace actor’s demise which hit the headline, he was said to have taken his diner before going to bed and died in his sleep.

“He was not sick. I was told that he ate last night. He did not die of any sickness. It was just the time for him to go and be with the Lord. One of my younger ones talked to him on the telephone on Saturday and he was okay. His wife, Iya Rhoda, told me that he ate around 6:pm and rested for a while before he entered into his room to lie down on the bed.

“His wife went inside the room to tell him something and she discovered that she was not responding. She started calling him, ‘Chairman, Chairman,’ but no response. She shook him and discovered that he had gone,” Emmanuel told Punch.
