102 27

The Yoruba movie industry has been thrown into mourning following the death of a top actor and producer Ahmed Durojaiye a.k.a Alasari.

The late Alasari

P.M.NEWS learnt that Durojaiye was on his way to Lagos from his Abeokuta, Ogun State base to promote his new movies when the incident occurred yesterday.

P.M.NEWS gathered that the actor was travelling with three other persons when the back tyre of the Pathfinder SUV in which they were travelling busted around Onipepeye area of Ogun State.  The vehicle veered off the road and somersaulted several times.

The occupiers were rescued by some people and a colleague of Alasari named Dayo Amusa.

They were later taken to Federal Medical Centre, Ogun State where Alasari was confirmed dead while the three others sustained minor injuries.

Meanwhile, the remains of the actor will be buried on Wednesday at his Abeokuta residence.

Some of the early callers to the home of deceased include Prince Jide kosoko, Muyiwa Ademola, Odulade Adekola, Dele Odule, Fausat Balogun, Sokoti,  Alhaji Akeem Balogun a.k.a. Olasco Films, Comrade Femi Jolayeml; Omega films and others.

The Owu, Abeokuta, Ogun State-born actor, who is in his early 40s, is survived by one wife, four kids and an aged mother.

Commenting about the death of Alasari, the former governor of ANTP, Lagos State, Rammey Shita-Bey described the incident as “a terrible loss to the Yoruba movie industry.  He died when he was gaining prominence.”

Chairman Highwaves Video Mart, Rotimi Aina –Kushoro was in a state of shock when P.M.NEWS called him.

He said when he was returning from a trip he spoke with the actor in Ibadan who told him that he will be in Lagos yesterday morning.

“It is so sad,” he said.

Prince Jide Kosoko was still in a state of shock and could not speak with P.M.NEWS.  But some of his colleagues described the late Ahmed Durojaiye who is a member of Ogun State chapter of ANTP, as a very nice and easy going person.

Before his death Durojaiye was planning to release two movies titled ‘Omo Nite Club’ and ‘Iyanu’Part 2.

  25. akorede

    This is another victim of OGIDI OLE death trap SAGAMU/ABEOKUTA express road. Late Ogun state SSG was one of the victim of the same ONIPEPEYE village road mishap and other un-notable Indigene that lost their life on this road that Governor Daniel claim he constructed with over a billion naira.
    Anyway his tenure is over.Foolish Governor

    1. sanmi

      i don’t think mr akorede is mature enough to be calling a whole governour foolish,is it a sin for him to turn single carriage way to dual carriage way,or a sin for him to bring about civilization and development into a state,well, i deeply condole with the family of the late actor my his soul rest in peace,but for my korede,pls bridle your mouth and think before you speak,may the lord fill the vacume the deceased has left behind,

    2. Apero

      He is so useless.. God should help us in this country
