Bolaji Amusan, alias Mr. Latin, has debunked news circulating the Internet that Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe, is dead.
Baba Suwe has been ill for some weeks and was reportedly flown out of the country recently for treatment in the United States.
However, a post on Facebook earlier today claimed that the comic actor was dead.
But Mr. Latin, who is the president of the Theater Arts and Motion Picture Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), has moved swiftly to debunk the news of Baba Suwe's death.
In a viral video he shared on his Instagram page on Tuesday, Latin said: “The purported rumour about Baba Suwe dead is fake.
”Baba Suwe is presently in America for treatment. He is hale, alive, healthy. I thank you all for your concern.”
