“The postponement is in honour of the three fallen heroes in the Yoruba movie industry. Olumide Bakare, Prince Adesina Adesanya (Pastor Ajidara) and Moji Olaiya. Both Prince Adesina ADESANYA(Pastor Ajidara) and Olumide Bakare would be buried on the 25 and 26th of May, 2017 respectively. It is in view of this that a July 4-7th, 2017 date has been chosen for the occasion. We hope you will keep the date opened in your diary.”

What a nice gesture from Saidi
