Eniola Oluwakemi Badmus, one of the most loveable & hilarious Nollywood actress has lost her Dad and is in mourning.
Today, the Nollywood actress took to her Instagram to share a collage of her photos with her octogenarian dad with a caption announcing his death.
“RIP dad,”, and this opened a floodgate of condolences from fans on her social media.
The actress has always had a close relationship with her father. In her September interview with Razzle Dazzle, Badmus revealed she is the 13th child of her father who has 21 living children.
She continued, “We all eat together as one family; some of us go on vacation together during summer and we all wine and dine together.”

“I am what I am today only because of the presence of a special someone in my life. On your Birthday today, I fail to find enough words to express my gratitude and wishes for you. Let’s raise a toast and celebrate your life as a kind, humble and generous father that you’ve been. Wishing you a very Happy 85th Birthday dad!” she said.
