Mr Latin, who is president of the Theatre and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), took to his Instagram account on Tuesday, April 23, to call the rumour of his death a “fake news.”
“Good Afternoon everybody, the purported rumour of Baba Suwe death is fake news. Baba Suwe is alive and presently in America undergoing treatment,” he said.
“I thank you all for your support and concern. I want to tell you authoritatively that is alive, nothing happened to him. Thank you and God bless you.”
Baba Suwe has been in the United States since Sunday where is expected to complete his medical treatment at an unnamed hospital in Rhode Island.
TheNewsGuru recalls that back in February 2019, Baba Suwe received a N10m monetary lifeline from a female cleric, Esther Abimbola a.k.a Iya Aladura
The cleric gave the actor a sum of N10 million for his medical treatment.
Esther Abimbola is the founder of a Cherubim and Seraphim church in London.
Abimbola who is popularly known as Iya Aladura, offered to help the ailing actor with some money after Nigerian movie producer, Gbenga Adewusi called on her for help.
