Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has debunked death rumours of veteran comic actor Babatunde Omidina popularly known as Baba Suwe.
Fabiyi while speaking with Legit NG confirmed that the actor is indeed alive and gearing up for his upcoming birthday.
According to him, Nigerians should simply celebrate the thespian instead of wishing death upon him.
"Baba Suwe is alive and well. Nigerians should take time out to celebrate his upcoming birthday," Fabiyi said.
Similarly, the actor took to his verified page on Instagram to further discredit reports that Baba Suwe has passed away.
"This is just unfair and evil for someone to cook up such dirty, unjust and unverified news without bearing in mind the consequences. It is criminal and unlawful. We have an organised and structured association and we are improving daily to be of standard and maximum service to all," his note read in part.
