Shocking: Ibadan Socialite, Femi Lekuti Dies Two Weeks After Burying Dad

The Ibadan social circle was shut down on Friday, February 10, 2017 when the news hits the city about the demise of a popular socialite, Femi Lekuti.

The socialite who joined politics and contested for the State’s House of Assembly under the All Nigerian Peoples Party but lost some years ago has reportedly being suffering from an undisclosed ailment which paralyzed some part of his body for some time.

A source that spoke with Papermache disclosed that he was managing the sickness well and even played a major role when he buried his father in Abeokuta two weeks ago before his untimely death.

The socialite who bestrode the country’s party circuit like a colossus in the 90’s was a darling of many. He enjoyed a rare goodwill during his lifetime as the line the King of fuji beats, Wasiu Ayinde dropped for him ‘danku ara wa ni, ijinle pam pam’ still rings in the heart of his many friends and admirers.

A family source hinted that the sickness gripped him in the early hours of Friday, February 10th 2017 and he was first rushed to Oke Ado hospital, Ibadan before he was later transferred to the University College Hospital where he was pronounced BID(Brought-in-Dead).

Socialite, Femi ‘danku’ Lekuti Suffers Stroke (pleads ‘help! i don’t want to die’)

He ruled the social circle in the 90’s like a colossus, but life in its fairness and oddness is playing a cruel game on him.

Femi Lekuti was a name that commanded respect some decades ago and not many socialites and fuji music fans can easily forget the mention ‘danku ara wa ni, ijinle pam pam!’ in one of K.1’s lyrics where he sang his praise to high heavens.

The socialite is at the moment not enjoying the best of health and he is calling out to his friends for help.

In a phone conversation with papermacheonline Lekuti confirmed ‘yes, I’m battling stroke which has left part of my body in paralysis, right now I’m in Abeokuta where I was directed to seek traditional cure. Please reach my friends, tell them to help, I don’t want to die’.

His battle with sickness reportedly started some years ago and he had incurred a lot of bills which left him with little option than to sell his properties.

To all that know him in his days ‘Baba Imole’ was a kind man that could give all he had to help his friends.

The socialite is at the moment bed-ridden in his Ibadan home waiting for help in any direction to come.
