Another Nollywood actor, Prince Femi Oyewumi, known as Laditi, is dead.

Laditi, a prince of Soun of Ogbomoso, died in the early hours of Friday after he was rushed to the hospital on Thursday night.

The 51-year-old actor was said to have been suffering from chronic back pain for some months before his death.

Those who watched him in the epics like Aye toto; Koto Orun; Ija eleye and so on won’t find it hard to remember a character called Laditi and his brilliant roles in the film industry.

Femi Oyewumi, an actor and a producer who is a specialist in a stage play, epic, and historic film, started his career in the ’80s.

Ogunojalu Ogbomoso was his last work.

However, Ajoke Kosemani, a Nollywood actress close to the actor, described his demise as a great loss to the movie industry in Nigeria.

  1. This is not the picture of the actor we grew up to know as Laditi. Maybe this actor bore that role name at some point, but the real Laditi is not so young and does not look like this.
