Reports have again surfaced in the social media that veteran comedian, Moses Adejumo, a.k.a. Baba Sala is dead but one of his children has denied the reports.
The son, Emmanuel, who spoke with Punch on the telephone at around 10:20 pm on Tuesday said his father is alive.
”It is not true that Baba is dead. He is alive and he doesn’t even have a stroke.
”I don’t know where those peddling the death rumour got it from.”
Popular comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka, had in a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday night stated:
“We lost him. What a great loss. An icon is gone.”
This is the second time in less than six months that such rumour would be peddled about the comedian.
In August, a similar rumour was published by many blogs, however, it was swiftly debunked by Emmanuel.
“Good morning Nigerians, I want to thank you all for your love… I would like to inform us that my Daddy, Hon Moses Olaiya Adejumo MON is alive, he is doing well. Please, ignore any death rumour,” Emmanuel had posted on Facebook.
