Excuse me, please. Our soldiers need us to prolong their life in happiness and joy, not just in films but also in music, football, crafts, and other media.

We must establish a trust fund and give them the better life they merit. part in “The Village Headmaster,” was declared deceased early on Saturday morning, according to The Nation.

Actor Saidi Balogun revealed his passing on Instagram, expressing his sorrow at his passing and bidding him farewell.

She remarked on how many veteran performers are in need of assistance and are suffering, particularly in terms of health.

Foluke pleaded with the president to provide a better plan for the veterans.
She demanded that the government create a trust fund and give the soldiers small gifts that they would treasure for the rest of their lives.

She stated this in response to the passing of veteran Dejumo Lewis, who she said was going through personal struggles that she would not discuss out of respect for the deceased.

I was a little saddened to learn of Uncle Dejumo Lewis’s passing when I woke up this morning. Not because he wasn’t old enough to pass away—after all, everyone will die at some point—but rather because I was close to most of these elderly veterans and knew the things we talked about when we got together.

“Uncle Dejumo told me he would have loved to celebrate his 80th birthday and that he had some needs (which I won’t discuss because I have to respect his death) to be met, but I was unable to provide for him because I had a lot of things I was handling myself (I still have some on my monthly payroll).”
I recall Uncle Larri Williams; we were organizing his book launch and birthday celebration, which is why the photo session on this post exists. Sadly, he passed away.
Death is unavoidable but manageable, particularly in the case of these elderly folks. My mother is ill and has been for a while. She doesn’t ask for much; all she wants is to be loved and have the necessities of life, which we her children have, in our own ways, been able to provide for her, mostly through God’s mercy.
No one will be the President of Nigeria right now and have it easy, but I am a shrewd admirer of my president and governor and I believe in them despite the difficulties. And I think that Nigeria may be better, but we need to make better arrangements for all of these veterans, sir.
Baba Agbako is almost a century old; we speak every other day, and from what I understand, his basic needs are met (thank goodness he has a home), but the frequent festivities have somewhat extended his life.

“Nollywood is a pension-free industry.” I realize, but please, sirs Babajidesanwoolu @officialasiwajubat @twitter

Could you please assist us in setting up a trust fund for these veterans and making provisions for the small things these actors would cherish in their future years, as they will never be able to spend the years they had before now?
In Nigeria and even throughout the world, these people have made us grin. These trailblazers have helped Nollywood get to where it is now globally.

“I clearly recall that prior to Covid, I was the one who rejoiced in each person’s final moments before the majority of them departed for the hereafter. Regretfully, I am unable to maintain it; all I can do is attempt.
Need I say a big thank you to everyone on social media? Despite the negative feedback, the necessary goals have always been met.

But in order to offer these elderly people a sense of purpose and to make them laugh, our government must put in place a long-term solution that shows them how much society values them and has returned the years they have spent honing their art.

“Most of these elderly individuals were working in our field out of enthusiasm before, and most of them had no idea how things would end up the way they did. Our profession is not pensionable. These are honest men and women who have led morally upright lives grounded in values.

Are they to be faulted for dying as beggars and peasants and sticking up for what is right? Excuse me, please. Our soldiers need us to prolong their life in happiness and joy, not just in films but also in music, football, crafts, and other media. We must establish a trust fund and give them the better life they merit.
