Why we will not mourn Adebayo Faleti – Afenifere

The Afenifere Renewal Group has revealed why it would not mourn the late renowned Yoruba actor, broadcaster, poet and writer, Chief Adebayo Faleti.
The group said the life of dedication and commitment that the deceased lived should be celebrated and not mourned.
Newsflash247 reports that Adebayo, who is one of the pioneer staff of the first television station in Africa, Western Nigeria Television (WNTV) died at the age of 86 during the weekend.
The group, in a statement by its publicity secretary, Kunle Famoriyo, on Monday said while the renowned actor and broadcast manager would be greatly missed as an unparalleled repository of Yoruba culture, his footprints in the annals of Yoruba culture should be celebrated and preserved.
Famoriyo said, “Baba Faleti was always willing to participate in anything that will promote Yoruba culture and language and that even in his old age, he offered himself as a pioneer member of the Board of Directors of Yoruba Academy, a cultural think-tank organisation established by the ARG.
“We commiserate with the Alaafin of Oyo, the Oyo State Governor, and Baba Faleti’s biological family members. We also call on all south-west governors to join hands to give Baba Faleti a befitting funeral, while also instituting enduring memorial for him.”
