Our hearts are heavy and our countenance sour as the news of the death of the illustrious Television personnel and Actor Sadiq Daba permeate the internet.
The news came to all yesterday the 3rd of March that Sadiq had gone to be with his creator. The actor had been battling leukaemia and prostate cancer since 2017 and was supported with fundraising by several Nigerians including Josephine Obiajulu Odumakin, Mabel Oboh, and Femi Otedola amongst others.
On the 3rd of February 2018, Daba joined Project Pink Blue to walk against cancer to commemorate World Cancer Day. He passed at the Ayinka General hospital in Ikeja, Lagos.
Sadiq was loved by many as that cheerful screen presenter and for his impeccable acting in the movie October first. A role model to all seen as a pioneer to northerners in the entertainment space.
Social media is riddled with lots of sweet words and eulogy to the late Sadiq. It is a very unfortunate situation and our heart goes out to his family and loved once. We pray they find solace in the knowledge that he was a great man and contributed immensely to the childhood of many great’s we know of today.
Rest In Peace Sadiq.
