“It is so sad we lost a Priceless Jewel, a very rare gem in the Nigerian film industry, Chief Mrs Folakemi Aremu, aka Orisabunmi, to the cold hands of death last night.


According to the actor, Orisabunmi died at 11 pm after a brief illness at 11pm.

“She passed away leaving a legacy of positive experiences for anyone who took the time to know her.
