President of the Association of Theatre-Arts Practitioners, ANTP, Prince Jide Kosoko, on reacting to Bisi Komolafe’s death disclosed that the union was planning to raise funds to help Bisi when the tragedy struck.
“I got to know of her illness on Sunday when Yinka Quadri called me that there is a need for us to raise fund for her treatment abroad. But unfortunately, we got the shocker this morning that she is dead. It is sad that this is coming on a new year” He said.
The Yoruba actress, died on the 31st of December, a few hours to the New year, after being hospitalized in the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan for 2 months, following a miscarriage she had.
Her boss, Mr Yinka Quadri in a telephone chat disclosed that the condition at which he last saw her on Sunday, December 30, had weighed him down. “I had to reach out to the Elders of the Association of National Theatre Practitioners (ANTP) to raise money for Bisi’s health because she had run out of money.” he said.
Bisi Komolafe got engaged to her Canadian based lover a few months back and had planned to get married this year.
The late actress was a nominee of the 2009 and 2011 BON Awards.
She left behind aged parents, brothers and sisters.
She will be buried on the 4th of January at Okepadi, Salvation Army way, Ibadan.
