Here is what the source said about Nollywood actress Toyin Majekodunmi’s death and how it relates to Peju Ogunmola:

“First noticed her in the 80s movie and her husband titled “OLANI YONU”. She slimmed down and beautiful. Then went off screen for a while. Next i saw her, she was big.

Aluwe’s wife Peju Ogunmola needs to be careful too. She was slimmed as well but suddenly gained weight. Start losing weight ma’am. There are ALWAYS warning signs. Weight is not something to be proud of. It used to be a sign of wealth and health but it was really never the case.”

In December, popular Nollywood actor Tunde Alabi got his leg amputated because of diabetes.

In our next episode of health talk, we will bring you a list of diabetes-causing foods you must watch out for.

May the souls of the deceased Nollywood stars rest in peace.

    The No. 1 killer is rice. I used to love and eat rice a lot until it led to diabetes. Now I eat more vegetables, whole grain and occasional brown rice, with lots of vegetables. We need a lot of self control, eat in little portions and avoid sugary drinks. I don’t drink soft drinks anymore, only water and tea without sugar. With a lot of discipline, sensible diet and exercise, one would survive diabetes for 30-40 years from date of diagnosis.
