See What Killed Veteran Yoruba Actor Pa Kasumu Kayode Odumosu


We reported some minutes back that veteran and legendary Yoruba actor, Pa Kasumu Odumosu Kayode has gave up the ghost. As indicated by reports, the aged actor died in a hospital after an “illness”

Review that in an interview with Punch last year (December), Pa Kasumu is quoted to have said his ailment is spiritual. His wellbeing status got troubling after a video showed his fragile state and he called for prayers.

“I need prayer, I don’t need help” Pa Kasumu reportedly told Punch.

Pa Kasumu said, “For now, I don’t need any help. All I need is prayer. All I can say about my sickness is that it is spiritual. That’s why I said it requires prayer. I’m currently at a church camp for its annual congress. God should take care of me. I will stay at the camp till the congress ends.”

The actor, who has been absent from the movie scene since he fell ill 10 years ago, revealed that it was the first time he would seek spiritual help. He also dismissed reports that he is now totally blind. He said, “RCCG is the first place I’ve gone for prayers. But, they have also been praying for me in my church in Sabo, Yaba, Lagos. I came from Abeokuta to the camp today (Wednesday).

“The doctors are just saying their own. They said I had a partial stroke. It affected my left side and to some extent, my sight.


“My wife and children have been taking care of me. The sickness started a long time ago. But I had the partial stroke nine years ago.”

Responding to reports that his smoking habits added to his affliction, Kasumu said people were simply ‘saying garbage’.

A son of the actor, Bode Odumosu, likewise spoke on his father’ health status. He emphasized that his dad needs prayers, not financial aid.

“I am his second son and we (his children) have been taking care of him. We didn’t reach out to anyone. People only became alarmed about Pa Kasumu’s condition after a video of him at Foluke Daramola’s event went viral,” he said.

It had been reported in 2017 that Pa Kasumu’s wellbeing worsened after he returned from a medical trip to India.

In spite of the fact that he was required to return to India two months after the initial trip, the sudden loss of his passport had prevented him from doing so.

Lately, sad news of the veteran actors suffering from life-threatening illness have been the request of the day.
