Veteran actor, Chief Jimoh Aliu (popularly known as Aworo), has died at the age of 86.

 

Aliu died on Thursday at the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, after a brief illness.

 

According to a close associate of the veteran actor, “The corpse of the deceased would be moved to his residence at Adebayo area in Ado-Ekiti before being taken to his hometown, Okemesi Ekiti in Ekiti West Local Government Area of the state, where he would be buried tomorrow.”

 

Aliu, who was working on five movie projects expected to feature top Nollywood actors, died while producing the first one titled, ‘Olowo Ite’.

 

The theatre practitioner, who was born in Okemesi-Ekiti, began his acting career in 1959 after joining Akin Ogungbe Theatre Group.

 

He left the theatre group in 1966 to form his own troupe, Jimoh Aliu Concert Party.

 

He had produced and featured in various Yoruba movies, including Arelu, Yanpan Yarin, and Fopomoyo.

 

He was a former President of the Association of Nigerian Theatre Practitioners
