Top Yoruba actor Pa Kasumu, whose real name is Kayode Odumosu, has denied the reports circulating in that he has lost his sight due to deteriorating health. Contrary to speculations, the renowned comic said the allegation is nothing but a figment of people’s imagination. While speaking with Encomium magazine on Thursday, October 13, 2016, the Odogbolu, Ogun born film maker said:“There’s nothing like that, maybe because of the fact that they don’t see me often in movies.”
Concerning his health the actor gave thanks to God for how far he has come with him but noted that he is yet to visit India again. He said: “The only thing is that I have not been able to go back to India for further treatment and medical checks because I have lost my passport. Even, if I get the passport now, I don’t have the money to embark on the trip now. But I still hope to go any time God blesses me.”
In 2013, Pa Kasumu sought help from fans to make up his medical bills after he suffered a stroke that affected his vision. In September 2016, reports surfaced that he went blind and was moved from his Abeokuta residence to his sister’s home in Ibafo. A couple of veteran Nollywood actors have been down with one ailment or the other in recent time. Village Headmaster actor Tunde Alabi is down with diabetes and his right leg up for amputation, Elder Maya lost his life to a liver related ailment.
