Nigerians mourn the beloved Nollywood star known as Omoge Campus.
Nollywood actor Aisha Abimbola has passed away.
The producer, actor, wife and mother of two had been in a battle with breast cancer that came to an end yesterday, May 15.
Abimbola was a notable star in her home country with a profile that put her solidly in the Nollywood A-list. She's known for her roles in popular titles such as, No pain No Gain, Papa Ajasco, So Wrong So Right, and Awerijaye. Yet we all know her as Omoge Campus in Bola Igida's famous film back in 2001, the role which put her in the industry spotlight.
Abimbola recently wet her feet as a producer when she made her producer debut with T'omi T'eje, which premiered in the U.S. and featured talent such as Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, Joke Muyiwa, Iyabo Oko, Saidi Balogun, Razak Olayiwola, and Bose Oladimeji among others.
Native of Isale Eko, Lagos Island Nigeria, Nigerians have been expressing the tremendous loss all over social media. Abimbola's colleague, Bisola Badmus first posted the confirmation of Abimbola's death on social media, and other colleagues have followed suit paying tribute by posting pictures of Abimbola online.
She will be missed.
