    Popular actor, Olalekan Oladipupo a.k.a. Lekkinson is dead.

    P.M.News learnt that Oladipupo died yesterday at the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, Osun State.

    Investigations revealed that the man died of a heart related ailment.

    His health was said to have relapsed yesterday and he was rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead at about 5.30 p.m.

    The former president of Association of Theatre Arts Practitioners of Nigeria, ANTP, Prince Jide Kosoko and a one time Governor of the Lagos State Chapter of the Association, Rammy Shitta-Bey confirmed the death of the star actor.

    I had to look at the picture more than once to be assured that it's the same Lekkinson. I haven't heard about him in ages. May his soul rest in peace.
