Veteran comedian, Moses Olaiya, popularly known as Baba Sala, was a household name in the early 80s and late 90s.

His artistic prowess was second to none as he was an expert at drawing out laughter from his numerous fans.

But at the moment, Baba Sala is not joking about his health. He needs your help.

The comedian, who sank into the background after enjoying patronage and limelight for decades, is said to be suffering from a stroke.

At a briefing held on his biography due for presentation on December 4, Baba Sala, who spoke with difficulty, noted, “I need help. Nigerians should help me. I am not dead yet, they should not let me die suffering.”

The one-time bride of the country’s entertainment industry looked frail and breathed with difficult at the event.

He could barely walk, as he was supported to the venue by two people.

Although he is 80, his family, including one of his wives, Funmi, said the octogenarian was not suffering from old age but lack of funds for medical treatment.

Baba Sala’s investments, according to his first son, Reverend Dele Adejumo, had all been wrecked by circumstances and poor management.

Among his investments listed by Adejumo are the Awada Spot in Ibadan; Alawada Standard Hotel, Ilesha; Alawada Records, Ibadan; and Ibukun Alawada Photo magazine.
