Popular Nigerian comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka has apologised to Nigerians for posting a false claim that veteran comedian, Moses Adejumo, popularly known as Baba Sala was dead.

Gbenga Adeyinka issued the apology via his Instagram page where he had earlier made the untrue claim.
“Good evening please DISREGARD the news of Baba Sala’s demise. The source has since recanted. So sorry for the misinformation.
“Feeling very stupid that I just took his word for it. Sorry again,” the standup comedian wrote.

Adeyinka’s untrue claim was deleted soon after it was posted, but many blogs had published it as the gospel truth without verifying from the family of Baba Sala.
Adeyinka had earlier posted, ” “

MOST SENIOR APOSTLE . MOSES ADEJUMO Popularly Known As

However, one of Baba Sala’s sons, Emanuel Adejumo, had dismissed the story as false.
He said “It is not true that Baba is dead. He is alive and he doesn’t even have a stroke.
“I don’t know where those peddling the death rumour got it from.”
This is the second time in less than six months that such rumour would be peddled about the comedian.
In August, a similar rumour was published by many blogs, however, it was swiftly debunked by Emmanuel.
“Good morning Nigerians, I want to thank you all for your love… I would like to inform us that my Daddy, Hon Moses Olaiya Adejumo MON is alive, he is doing well. Please, ignore any death rumour,” Emmanuel had posted on Facebook.
