The children of the Dejo Tunfulu were in shock at their father’s demise.
His first son, Junior, revealed that his father had an unfulfilled dream in the movies he had produced but were yet to be released to the public. He told Saturday Beats, “My dad believed in me that I can act. I used to be nervous and scared. He had four children. He was sick before he died. He told my younger brother that we should not fight the doctors before he passed on. He was taken to Ikorodu General Hospital where his colleagues showed up and they really tried (their best for him).
I appreciate their efforts because they stood by him. I pray my dad’s soul will rest in peace. My dad already created some things for us (his children) before he died. Some of his films have not been produced, and he was supposed to release them before he passed on. I just have to make him proud wherever he is. That was what he told me last year.”
Another of the late actor’s children, Victoria, stated that they would appreciate whatever help they could get, particularly from the government. She said, “In any way the government can support us, they should. Even if it is school fees, house rent or job opportunities, we would appreciate. Three of us (siblings) are still in school.”
Corroborating his brother, one of the deceased’s sons, Muiz, said, “My dad had a movie he was supposed to release in April. He had finished producing it.”
