Veteran Actress Iyabo Oko dies months after her rumored death

Yoruba movie veteran, Sidikat Odunkanwi professionally known as Iyabo Oko, has passed on.

Iyabo Oko’s daughter, Bisi Aisha, announced her demise on Instagram.

She wrote “it is well with your soul,  mummy RIP”


Before her demise, the 62-year-old actress battled with ill-health which caused her to take a long break from the movie scene.

The actress sparked controversy in 2022 after she was announced dead and came back alive three hours after.

Sidikat had stage names such as “Iyabo Oko” “Apoti Aje” Sisi Mama”.

Last year, one of her daughters, Olamide, disclosed that her mother was diagnosed with ischaemic stroke about five years ago but kept her health issues away from the public.

Yoruba Nollywood stars including Foluke Daramola, Iyabo Ojo, Bolaji Amusan, Mercy Aigbe and Biodun Okeowo, others assisted financially in the past.
