Since the sad news of Nollywood actress, Aisha Abimbola, hit the airwaves, there had been tributes and elegies from colleagues, friends and fans across the planet.
Abimbola of the Omoge Campus fame, reportedly lost her life battling breast cancer in far away Canada. Of course, there has not been an officially confirmation of the cause of her death.
Her colleague, Bisola Badmus, who broke the news on her (Badmus)’s Instagram page wrote, “Unquestionably God RIP Omoge Campus.” She also shared the picture of the deceased with the caption, “Gone so soon RIP omogecampus.
“I’m still in shock as I woke to hear this sad news. I remember we were together in New York in November 2017 and we had a great time together. We might not be too close but we got along every time we met. Continue to rest in peace Aisha Abimbola Ibrahim.”
Other colleagues of the deceased like Ronke Odusanya, Biodun Okeowo, and Odunlade Adekola, have also joined the fray.
Opeyemi Aiyeola says, “This is too painful to bear. Seeing your pictures all around just makes me cry the more. Aishat Abimbola, it hurts me a lot to hear about your sudden death. May your soul rest in perfect peace.”
Ayo Adesanya has this to say, “I did not see this coming, so sad, heavens gained another angel.
“The last time we went out I had no idea you were fighting so much, am so sorry dear, you fought to the end. May your soul rest in peace.”
Fuji music maestro, Alabi Pasuma, Abimbola’s death has left a void no one can fill. Said he, “There are not many in the world like you and today the earth mourns the loss of an angel. This is beyond us, but who are we to question the giver of life.”
“It feels so unbelievable hearing this now. I don’t even know what to say, God grant her eternal rest and keep her children from vultures of this earth,” Bimbo Thomas wrote.
Abimbola featured in indigenous and non-indigenous productions such as “No Pain, No Gain,” “Awerijaye,” “So Wrong So Right,” “Omoge Campus,” “Kamson and Neighbours” among others.
She made her debut as a producer with the 2016 movie “T’omi T’eje,” which she premiered in Atlanta, with a music performance by King Rokan. But it was Omoge Campus that brought her into prominence.
The movie was based on a true life story, which she heard about during her Youth Service year in 2002. A mum of two, she was married to a colleague, Victor Ibrahim.
