Kunle Afolayan pays tribute to memory of late Sadiq Daba
Film maker, Kunle Afolayan, has paid glowing tribute to the memory of veteran actor, broadcaster, writer, and producer, Sadiq Daba, who passed on yesterday, March 3, after a protracted sickness.
The late actor featured promonently as Danladi Waziri in October 1, and Prof. Yahaya in Citation, two of Kunle’s films.
In his tribute written on behalf of his production company, which was posted on his Instagram page, he described the fallen actor as the greatest warrior, who was determined to enjoy everything he loved – including acting.
“The life of one we love is never lost. His influence goes on through all the lives it ever touched” – Christopher Holloway.
… Just like the impact of our dear beloved one, Mr.Sadiq Daba whose ever positive and enlightening presence left an unforgettable mark in our hearts. We’ve come a long way as a family, and we are truly grateful for every moment we shared together.
Mr.Sadiq is the greatest warrior we’ve ever known, and his undaunting nature shone bright during his time on set with us. He was determined to enjoy everything he loved – including acting. And this we are extremely happy to be a part of.
His enthusiasm at playing Inspector Danladi Waziri in October 1 and Prof. Yahaya in Citation is a true definition of his optimistic and passionate self, which we’ll never forget. No one could have played these roles better than Mr.Sadiq Daba.
Words can’t describe how grateful we are to have been a part of his life on earth, but we hope this short video will do justice. He will continue to live on in our hearts.
