The actor, who died on Monday at the age of 63 after a long illness, was laid to rest alongside his late wife, Moladun, in his compound around 11 a.m. on Thursday.

Friends, colleagues, and family members could not hold back their tears as two of his fans dressed as and mimicked his character.
The fraca began when his corpse arrived with a coffin and a woman identified as Ayodele, aka Suwe, who claimed to be his first wife, insisted that he be buried with the coffin despite being a Muslim, noting that he was a celebrity and deserved a better burial.
She said: “He will be buried in the coffin. That’s how the children want it; you know, the practice of everybody is different.The children want it like that, the family and his colleagues also want it like that. ”
However, anI slamic cleric, Sheikh Ahamad Alfulanny, noted that the deceased was brought in a coffin so that colleagues, family, friends, and fans would be able to pay him their last respects and also to show that no organ of his body was missing. He, however, expressed a deep dissatisfaction over his burial delay, which he said was against Islamic injunction.
Speaking with our correspondent at the burial, Mr. Latin denied reports that the association abandoned the deceased while he was sick.
