Popular Yoruba movie star, Aisha Abimbola, popularly known as Omoge Campus, has died.

She reportedly died in a Canadian hospital on Wednesday. The cause of death was still speculative as at press time.

Her colleague, Bisola Badmus, broke the news of her death on her Instagram page.

Other colleagues of the deceased like Ronke Odusanya, Biodun Okeowo, and Odunlade Adekola, have also expressed shock over the loss of their colleague.

According to Goldmyne TV, it was reported that the deceased allegedly died of breast cancer in Canada. The late actress was rounding off her HND programme at the Lagos State Polythenic when Wale Adenuga Productions came to shoot in her school.

The director, Antar Laniyan – who eventually became her mentor – was waiting for a cast member when Abimbola walked up to him to ask for a role in the movie.

Laniyan offered her the role of the absent actress, kicking off Abimbola’s acting career.

However, the movie “Omoge Campus” – a film by Bola Igida – shot her into limelight in 2001.

Apart from her acting career, the deceased also ran a catering business. Her death comes almost a year after Moji Olaiya’s death. The talented actress died on May 17, 2017, in Canada. She died few months after welcoming her second daughter.

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.

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 formerly married to a colleague, Victor Ibrahim.

Popular Nigerian singer, Ayoleyi Solomon, also known as Reekado Banks, has announced his departure from Mavin Record.

Mavin Record is a music label owned by the popular producer, Don Jazzy.

In a post on his Instagram page, Reekedo Banks thanked Don Jazzy for the opportunity he gave him to improve himself after he joined the record label in 2013.

The post read: “Today I write in tears, not from a place of pain, but of joy and gratitude. A place of bliss and satisfaction because I am more than contented with how far this opportunity has brought me. The last five years have been the most blissful years of my career. The journey has been extremely wonderful and filled with the best experiences.

“I’ve learnt that family is not just about blood ties but about the love, sacrifices and friendship that exist amongst its members. The relationships I have fostered has proved to me that love is thicker than blood. Joining the @mavinrecords family was the best thing to have happened to me in the last decade. @donjazzy took me in and treated me like his own son. I’ll be eternally grateful to him for sacrifices he made towards the growth of my career.

“His selflessness and efforts towards me and the entire Mavin crew is one that is admirable and worthy of emulation. A true KING with a large heart, full of kindness and ready to accommodate even more people. And to the rest of the crew, Our family is a clear example of the saying, ‘We rise by lifting others’.

“Thank you all for all the times you’ve lifted me at my lowest moments, for the support, the amazing hits and most especially, the LOVE. Taking this bold step and moving on from Mavin Records onto bigger opportunities is something that, though not easy, is absolutely necessary because of my growth. I am very ecstatic about what the future holds and I cannot wait to share with everyone what new opportunities have come. Long Live Mavin Records.”

Popular Comedian, Kevin Hart has stepped down as host of the 2019 Oscars.

This is coming two days after he announced he was hosting the 2019 Academy Awards on his Instagran page.

On why he stepped down, Hart claimed he was pressured by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to apologize for past homophobic comments.

On his Twitter page, he wrote: “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s. This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists.

“I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past. I’m sorry that I hurt people. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

After Hart was announced as the host for the Oscars, multiple celebrities and other critics noted some of his past, including tweets, such as, “Yo if my son comes home and tries to play with my daughters doll house I’m going to break it over his head and say in my voice ‘stop that’s gay.’”
