A Yoruba veteran actor, Pa Jimoh Aliu, popularly known as ‘Aworo’ is dead.

 He died at the age of 85.

The Ace actor who was the producer of many epic and household films, including the famous movie “Arelu” and a host of others, died at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, Thursday afternoon.

Jimoh Aliu, a former President of the Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (ANTP), lived an eventful life and succeeded in raising many actors who are still making waves in the make believe industry today.

VOICE AIR MEDIA obtained that his body would be moved to his residence at Adebayo area in Ado-Ekiti, after which he would be taken to his hometown, Okemesi-Ekiti, Ekiti West Local Government Area of the state, where he would be buried tomorrow, a close associate to the late Actor said.

Aliu succeeded in producing the first of his five-movies project, Olowo-Ete, before his demise. The projected movies were expected to feature top Nollywood actors in Nigeria.

Born in Okemesi-Ekiti, the deceased began acting in 1959, after joining Akin Ogungbe Theatre Group and left in 1966 to form his own troupe, Jimoh Aliu Concert Party, in Ikare-Akoko, Ondo State.

He had produced and featured in various Yoruba movies, the most popular being Yanpan Yarin and Fopomoyo.

Aliu was formerly married to his colleague and Orisabunmi star, Folake Aremu, before they parted ways after 20 years of marriage. He is survived by two wives – Queen Bola and Folashade.

After years on the airwaves, he was honoured with a National Merit Award of Member of the Federal Republic (MFR) in December 2005.

May his soul rest in peace.
