Veteran Nollywood actor, Yinka Ogundaisi, who starred in The Village Headmaster in 1958, has died, a close family member said.

The actor died on Wednesday after battling a prolonged illness.

Before his death, Ogundaisi suffered from leg paralysis and asked for financial assistance to undergo surgery. However, the target fund could not be met.

In 2013, he was diagnosed with twisted intestines, a hernia, and an enlarged prostate, according to reports.

He then had problems as a result of back pains, which he was claimed to have battled for several years.

Ogundaisi was a cinema, television, and radio actor, writer, and director.

After the late Duro Ladipo, he was the second actor to play the iconic Sango in the film Oba Koso.

He is recognized for reviving and repackaging ‘Feyikogbon,’ the longest-running Yoruba TV show.

Also, he wrote The Charmed Lock, a crime fiction thriller based on African hypnotism.
