Nollywood legendary actor, Kayode Odumosu, popularly called Pa Kasumu has lost his sight and has problem walking after suffering from an unknown illness.
The 66-year-old veteran caused a lot of emotional roller coaster after recently making an appearance at an event by actress Foluke Daramola. The event was said to be meant for ailing and aging Nollywood veterans, hence, Pa Kasumu’s appearance.
The veteran was said to have been suffering from both liver and heart ailments that affected his memory and eyesight. The condition was said to have deteriorated after he couldn’t raise enough money to fund his trip to India to continue his treatment.
There were reports that he initially suffered a partial stroke in 2013 but he travelled to India in 2015 for treatment and he got better. He was however required to return to India two months for another treatment which he could not due to financial setbacks. This made his condition to deteriorate. He was also reported to have misplaced his international passport.
Members of his family were said to have moved him from his home in Abeokuta to his elder sister’s residence at Aseese, Ogun state in 2016.
The actor is now completely blind and is only able to walk with support. His appearance got his fellow veterans, including Mama Rainbow, teary-eyed. Some were even seen in the video sobbing uncontrollably, especially Yinka Qadri.
