He recently revealed that the rumors are false and the movie star and his dad never tested positive for coronavirus.
According to him, his father had been on admission since last year and he was diagnosed for another thing entirely, so it had nothing to do with COVID-19.
He added that Nigerians should ignore the lies being spread by the rumor mongers because they are not worth the attention.
His words, “It is not true that my father, late Nollywood actress, Orisabunmi and their younger sister, Janet Onishola died of COVID-19 complications. My dad has been on admission since last year and he was diagnosed for another thing entirely. It has nothing to do with COVID-19 at all.
Basketballers are aware, they came visiting, I was with him for a month at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), taking care of him.
Leave them to be saying their rubbish, how many people will I explain this to, do you know where those things have gotten to?”

Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.
The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.
Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.
Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
