Prominent Yoruba actor, Samuel Akinpelu, otherwise known as Alabi Yellow, is dead.
The actor passed on Sunday at Hopewell hospital in Ikorodu, Lagos, after an unsuccessful battle with stroke.
Before his death at 62, the actor featured in Kunle Afolayan’s latest film, titled ‘Mokaliki.’
Akinpelu, who was hit with stroke in 2018 after the death of his wife, was assisted with 10 million by Prophetess Esther Ajayi to aid his treatment. However, the news of his death since yesterday has triggered several comments, with many saying he was not given proper treatment before he indicated interest in the funds.
