Bamidele, who is a cleric at the Love of Christ Chapel International Ministry in Lagos, said the family was humiliated that a few people had opened a phony account and requesting assets from clueless individuals from general society. He, be that as it may, cautioned individuals from the general population against paying into this account, saying anyone who needed to give assets to the family should come to Ilesa where the family of the late comedian lived. Bamidele stated:
“We have not opened any PayPal account or any online account. The claim is false information. The family has not asked for anything from anybody. We have not met and nobody is soliciting anything from anybody yet. If we will be expecting anything from any fans, admirers or anybody at all, it will be freewill donation.
We have not opened any PayPal site or any intent account for people to donate to. Anybody who wants to donate anything to the family should please come to the family in Ilesa. Such people can come with pressmen and take photographs to document it. They should have standard record and avoid fraudsters. They should avoid fraudsters, who are posing as members of the family.”
Baba Sala, 82, kicked the bucket in his sleep on Sunday night after taking his dinner. The family said his youngest wife, Funmilayo, had gone to his room to mind him when she found that he had died. One of Baba Sala’s children, Emmanuel Adejumo was the person who affirmed his passing.
Emmanuel affirmed the passing of his father in a Facebook post in the early long stretches of Monday, October 8, 2018.The younger man said, “My Daddy is gone. Finally gone home to glory. King of Comedy finally say bye-bye to this world. I will miss you so much Daddy. I love you so much but God love you more. Good night my mentor, father, teacher, gist partner. My daddy is gone.”
The remains of the late comedian has been deposited at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex Annex, (Wesley Guild Hospital) in Ilesa. This move, it was gathered, is to prepare the family and friends of the entertainer ahead of his burial.
