Chairman of Cornfield Group and Botosoft Techologies, Dr Babatope Agbeyo has commiserated with the family and people of Ekiti State over the demise of movie legend, Chief Jimoh Aliu, aka Aworo.
Dr Agbeyo, an investor in the movie business, also condoled with movie practitioners in Nigeria on the death of the veteran actor who for many decades had the privilege of leading Nigeria’s entertainment industry with diligence, discipline, dedication, and core professionalism.
He said the late actor, who was once ANTP President was a strong advocate for peace and development in film production, demonstrated visionary leadership that was very evident to all, including his efforts to deepen the culture, values, virtues and tradition of the Yoruba race through the contents and story lines of al his productions.
The famous entrepreneur, and philanthropist added that unknown to many, Chief Jimoh Aliu was a cousin to his biological mother and that the deceased stood by him and extended fatherly roles when he lost his dad, stressing that he helped him to make many decisions which positively paid off. ”The last message I recieved from him was in May this year. I am deeply pained by the story of his sudden death.” Dr Agbeyo said.
He said the deceased style of leadership for many decades earned him the trust and respect of his community, contemporaries and Nigerians from diverse political, social and religious leanings.
Dr Agbeyo prayed almighty God to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest and comfort to the family he left behind, theater community and the good people of Ekiti State during this time of mourning.
