Popular Yoruba actor Dayo Akinpelu, popularly known as Alabi Yellow, has suffered a partial stroke.
Confirming the news on Wednesday, comedian Jigan Babaoja of ‘Sho Mo Age Mi’ fame, announced that his foundation would visit the actor and see to his speedy recovery.
Concise News gathered that the 62-year-old actor’s health deteriorated after his wife passed away recently.
Alabi Yellow revealed in a video that he has been suffering from the illness for about six months. This comes after he featured in Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie, ‘Mokalik’.
Over four decades after his debut as a professional actor, the actor is one of the most recognisable faces in the Yoruba movie industry.
