Veteran Actor Olumide Bakare is dead


Veteran actor, Olumide Bakare is dead. Former president of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners, NANTAP, Mufu Onifade confirmed the sad news adding that he passed on early Saturday.

“He had a successful surgery and after the surgery, he talked to people and told them he was fine. But two hours later, he passed on. It is very painful because I had actually been wishing him a quick recovery. “Olumide Bakare is someone who was a hundred percent committed to the theatre profession. He started on stage and then from there, went on TV, did radio and then film which was where he settled.

Of course he became much more popular for his stint of TV in Oluwa Langbe Lodge. That was what brought him to limelight. You can’t fault him as a professional. He is someone who was very discipline. I see him as the last of the second generation of actors in Nigeria,” Onifade said.
