Just two days short of two years since the death of actress, Moji Olaiya in Canada, Nollywood stars have been thrown into mourning once more following the death of popular Yoruba actress, Aisha Abimbola. According to reports, many of which are still speculative at this time, the actress died in a Canadian hospital with the cause of death tied to a type of cancer which she has been battling silently for a while.
Fellow actress, Bisola Badmus, was the first to break the news via her Instagram account on Wednesday morning before others like Odunlade Adekola, Ronke Odusanya and Biodun Okeowo further confirmed it as they expressed shock over the painful loss.
Having become popular for her role in the movie, Omoge Campus by Bola Igida and as well for her roles in TV series such as Papa Ajasco and Company and Super Story, Bisola Badmus wrote: “Gone so soon RIP omogecampus” while sharing a photo of the 46-year-old who died on Tuesday in Canada like Moji Olaiya.
Before hitting limelight, Abimbola, known for her impressive acting and simple lifestyle, featured in Eje Adegbenro which was produced by Jide Kosoko and a series known as Awerijaiye.
The tributes have continued to pour in, with many of her colleagues expectedly taking to social media to express shock while praying for her to rest in peace. Some of the tributes so far as reproduced below: Yomi Fabiyi: Sharing a picture of the late actress along with crying emojis, he wrote: “Unquestionable God.”
On his own, Odunlade Adekola posted a picture of the actress on Instagram with the words: Omg so sad” while Ronke Odusanya wrote: “STILL IN SHOCK ……RIP @omogecampus1.” Fellow actress, Biodun Okeowo also known as Omo Butty, also wrote as part of her tribute: “May God forgive all your sins Aunty Aisha. #NoMoreOmogeC ampus#tearsuncontrolable#Go dPleasehaveCompasion#LetTH ISstop#” Adeniyi Johnson simply wrote: “Keep resting sis… Pls pray for us all” as Iyabo Ojo wrote: “Not again!!! am so lost of words, this is a great shock!!! Not again Lord!!! RIP dear.

May your soul rest in perfect peace Aishat Abimbola (Omoge Campus)” Tayo Sobola: “May the soul of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen Rip Aunty #Aishaomogecampus.”

Pls pray for her #omogecampus” Eniola Afeez: “May your beautiful soul rest in the bossom of Almighty God #RIP” Kunle Afod: “Another sad one…I never prayed to use ..
