President Bola Tinubu expressed sorrow on Sunday at the passing of two seasoned Nollywood performers: Tolani Quadri Oyebamiji, well known as Sisi Quadri, and John Okafor, better known as Mr. Ibu.

The president referred to the performers as geniuses who, via their work, had relieved and cheered millions of Nigerians.

“Take comfort in the knowledge that even though these cherished Nigerians have departed, they will always live through their works which will remain an inspiration and a fount of good cheer for many,” he said, urging the bereaved.

Assuring them of his support, thoughts, and prayers at this time of sadness, he also expressed his condolences to the Actors Guild of Nigeria, the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), and the whole creative community.

Sisi Quadri passed away on Friday at the Ogbomoso general hospital, where he was being treated for an unidentified disease. His passing occurs on the same day as the premiere of Anikulapo: Rise of the Spectre, his most recent film in which he portrayed one of the three ghosts in the mysterious epic series helmed by Kunle Afolayan.

After experiencing a relapse a few days prior, Mr. Ibu was taken to Evercare hospital in Lagos on Saturday and later passed away from cardiac arrest.
