The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described the death of former Village Headmaster Producer, Chief Tunde Oloyede, as a big blow to the Creative Industry in particular and the nation in general.
In a statement issued yesterday, the Minister said Chief Oloyede’s demise has robbed the nation’s Creative Industry of a great icon, a creative genius and a passionate advocate of the industry.
He said while Chief Oloyede was a man of many parts, he stood out for his legendary role in the production of the TV drama series, Village Headmaster, which for a long time enraptured Nigerians.
He prayed that God will give strength and succour to the family of the deceased, and also grant them the fortitude to bear their irreparable loss.
The Minister also prayed that God will grant eternal rest to the soul of the departed.
