For the Management
- ADIEU BIODUN IBITOLA (MAMA REMDEL)…REST IN PEACE.
I just got the news of the death of MRS. BIODUN IBITOLA (MAMA REMDEL). This is a great loss to all in the film production and broadcasting industry at large.
To many of us, Mrs Biodun Ibitola came to the limelight as a dogged, strong-willed and bold Yoruba newscaster (then popular BIODUN AGBOOLA) of RADIO NIGERIA AKURE in the early 1980s (particularly in the pre,during and post 1983 general elections period). I came closer to her in 1987 during an audition when I was making attempt to join the IRIRI AYE DRAMA GROUP.
She will be greatly missed. May her soul rest in peace. Amen
May her soul rest in perfect peace (amen).
