Yemi My Lover, Ti Oluwa Nile, Yemi In The Moon, and other films made him famous. After a brief illness, Lukuluku died in 1995.

a.k.a. Jaguar:

During the 1980s and 1990s, he was noted for his humorous scenes in his TV shows. Jaguar is famous for his greying hair and traditional attire, which set him apart from his classmates.

Jaguar died in the year 2000, when he was 55 years old.

Mufutau Oladokun, a.k.a. Alaran:

He was a Nigerian comedian recognized for his one-of-a-kind comedy roles in Yoruba-language films. Alaran was said to have become ill in the early part of 2003 and died in the same year.

Tajudeen Akanbi, a.k.a. Koledowo:

Koledowo was a well-known Nigerian comedian who rose to prominence in the 1990s. His comedic parts in Ajileye films like Koto Aye, Koto Orun, Eran Iya Osogbo, and others made him famous.

Moses Olaiya:

Baba Sala, his stage moniker, is well-known. He is regarded as one of the forefathers of Nigerian comedy. He’s been in front of the camera since the early 1960s. In 1982, he made the film “Orun Moru,” which was a masterpiece.

In 2018, he passed away.

Babatunde Omidina, a.k.a. Babasuwe:

Due to his humorous roles in movies, Babasuwe is without a doubt the doyen of Nigerian comedy. He began his acting career in the 1970s and was most known for his roles in the 1980s TV series “Erin Keke” and various home videos.

He died in 2021 after suffering from a long-term illness.

May their souls find eternal rest.
