A popular Nigerian television presenter, Rachel Bakam, has died at the age of 38. The mother of one died from anaemia.

In an exclusive chat with The PUNCH, her brother, Armstrong Bakam, revealed that Rachel died at 12pm on Tuesday afternoon with her mother by her bedside.

Armstrong said, “She had anaemia; so, she was taken to the hospital on Friday and she died this afternoon at about 12pm. I was not with her when she died, but her mother was by her side.

“Before Friday, she fell ill and was admitted for some days but she was discharged and taken home. However, she was returned to the hospital on Friday.

“Right now, her mother is not in the right frame of mind to speak. Rachel was 38 years old when she died; she would have clocked 39 on September 11. She had a son.”

Armstrong further revealed that the family was in shock as Rachel reached out to them for prayers via the family group chat on Sunday and everyone thought she was recovering.

He said, “We will really miss her because her death is a shocking and devastating news to the family. In fact, the whole family is actually troubled and quite a number of people are yet to believe that it is actually true.

“On our family WhatsApp group, she posted that she needs our prayers while she was in the hospital on Sunday; people were wishing her well and she was responding with amen. Quite a number of people felt she was recuperating but the news of her death is a huge shock.”

He noted that she would be missed because she had a large heart.

“She was actually my niece because her father was my first cousin. I will miss her because she was a very lovely person. She was always smiling and she was down to earth. She was always accommodating because she had a large heart,” Armstrong said.

Rachel was born and brought up in Kaduna State where she had her primary, secondary, and tertiary education.

She studied English and Theatre Arts at Ahmadu Bello University and Digital Filmmaking at the New York Film Academy.

My father never recovered from NDLEA ordeal – Baba Suwe’s son

Adebowale, the son of a late comic actor, Babatunde Omidina, aka Baba Suwe, on Tuesday, said his father did not recover from what he suffered in the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency after he was accused of peddling dr¥gs in 2011, which turned out to be false.

The actor died on Monday at his house in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State after battling a sickness. He was aged 63.

Adebowale, in a viral video on Monday, accused family members and friends of neglecting the veteran actor while he battled the illness.

 

However, while speaking at the residence on Tuesday, he apologised for making the video, saying he did not mean to disrespect anyone.

Speaking on his father’s sickness, Adebowale said the illness started after the NDLEA ordeal.

He said, “My father was a lovely person. Whenever I showed him his videos, he would start laughing and sometimes burst into tears and ask if it was him and if he would ever act again and I would console and assure him that he would act again, just to make him happy.

“I can’t really say this was the cause of my father’s sickness, but since his matter with the NDLEA, my dad was not himself; he used to think about his wife and he used to think about us too because he still told me a few days ago that he was not sure if he would be with us for long and I told him that he would be with us.”

Narrating Baba Suwe’s last moments, Adebowale said he was in the gym on Monday when he was called that his father was not breathing well.

“I asked them to call a nurse to treat him and when I got home, I went to his room, talked to him; he was trying to talk to me, but he could not.

“He was taking his first drip when I got home and when he was taking the second drip, I went out to wash my kits. I was washing my kits when my mum came to tell me that my dad was dead. I had to ask her if she was joking because I just left him about five minutes ago; I rushed to his room and found out that he was dead.

It was a day of glitz and glam as Iyabo Ojo held a grand ceremony in honour of her late mother, Olubunmi Fetuga who passed away in 2020.
Despite numerous stars turning up to celebrate with her, Ojo made sure to remain the star of the day with gorgeous outfits.
The film star rocked not one but five stylish looks – two of which were designed by Toyin Lawani and CEO Luminee.

In classic Iyabo Ojo style, she made sure to spare no expenses with her looks and judging by the photos she uploaded, her stylists and designers understood the assignment perfectly.

Check them out below:

The actress rocked a bedazzled blue dress with a feathered mono strap sleeve. The mermaid look which she paired with a blue gele and clutch purse, gave off a peekaboo effect as she showed off her thighs in a sheer look just before her knees.

For her final look Iyabo Ojo went all out with the creativity in a red beaded dress by Toyin Lawani of Tiannah’s Empire. The elaborate sleeves gave off a structured look that unarguably made her the cynosure of all eyes.

Some netizens claimed that with five different outfits for a one-year remembrance party, one would not imagine what Iyabo Ojo would do at five years.
