Yomi Fabiyi mourns actress Jumoke Aderounmu’s passing

Actor Yomi Fabiyi has joined the mourning of Jumoke Aderounmu, a well-known Nollywood actress who just passed away. She was well known for playing “Esther” in the iconic TV series Jenifa’s Diary.

Fabiyi shared his feelings on Instagram after recalling the unfortunate loss of the forty-year-old actress early on Saturday.

He recalled Jumoke’s visit to his Gbagada house, when she had given him words of support when he was having a hard time.

Fabiyi thanked her and the other friends who helped him during that time, stating that their actions had given him courage and hope.

Fabiyi also talked on how social media affects relationships in the industry in his post.

He regretted not being able to help Jumoke had she reached out, and bemoaned not having heard from her prior to her passing.

In his words…

Jumokeeee! The last time I saw you was when you came to visit when I used to live in Gbagada then. You saw my condition and told me to hang in there that it was a phase and I would come out stronger. Same time, @sotayogaga @eniayenfe_ot came and gave me some money to support. I can never forget those visits and concerns. It gave me hope and fortify my survival instinct. Thank you, guys.

Instagram, as in social media in general, the daily posts have killed many relationships. We have jettisoned the conventional friendship characteristics in the industry. Seeing a colleague’s post, liking, or commenting now means care, friendship, loyalty, keeping in touch, etc. Charade and total bs.

Whereas there could be serious pain behind some beautiful posts. We are all guilty of this. Jummy, I never heard a thing, you didn’t reach out. On a normal day, and you know, except you place a caveat, I would have moved and rally others, and maybe calvary would have surfaced.

So weak to post since. I just muster this little courage to post. Oga, oh, RIP for you, Jumoke. Death, keep big distance from my loved ones, please. RIP Jumoke Aderounmu . Sun re oh

If I write a sentence as your tribute, I know you will reject”.
