Baba Sala who has been nicknamed the father of modern comedy in Nigeria was an artiste, filmmaker, and TV presenter who brought laughter and joy to many households during his active days.

See how Twitter users are reacting to his death –

And I will repeat it here. Baba Sala (Moses Olaiya) was not a ‘Veteran’ but a legend, a pioneer and a trailblazer. And what we need from the media are images of him in his prime, so that younger people who did not meet him on the stage will get a sense of his greatness. RIP. https://t.co/e3kSuoBh19

Lol how is ‘Baba Sala’ a veteran?
The man is an icon, King Sunny Ade who is a legend, was a member of his band back in the 60s…
And this is before Baba Sala became an icon in theater and film in the 70s and 80s. https://t.co/v3m0WPrh2L
