Yomi Obileye Chief Daddy’s Younger Brother Is Dead: Veteran Nigerian Actor Dies
The elder brother to Taiwo Obileye, star actor in Chief Daddy movie, Pa Yomi Obileye has died.
He gave up the ghost around 6:38AM today Friday the 24th of April 2020 at his family home in Lagos.
According to a Nollywood insider, Pa Yomi Obileye has been showing symptoms of coronavirus infection since early March but was not officially tested or diagnosed with the condition.

We were both vintage car enthusiasts and loved how you were my perfect date to fashion shows..
You had a way of making me feel loved, valued and precious and oh how you pampered me…and named me ‘Kikelomo’
You were larger than life, my movie night, perfect queens English speaking poshest spice intellectual convo, inspirational …stay up late competition companion and high five buddy.
You were a devoted husband to mum and a fabulous grandad ..my mind was not ready for this.. Daddy even tears fail to console ..I know that God blessed me with the best of the best in you and so how can I question Him when He was the one that blessed me with you in the first place.. My Ayomze Jimmy Abayomi Obileye …when we meet again at Lord’s feet..I will kneel to thank you for the love you showered over me
