The family of Olumide Bakare, has announced May 26, 2017 the burial arrangements  for the actor. It will take place in Ibadan, Oyo State, on May the 26th, 2017

The 65 year old actor died on his way to the UCH Ibadan, after his health suddenly took a different dimension after a long battle with lung and heart disease.

His death left his family and colleagues sad. It's such a great loss to the Nollywood Industry.

Dele Odule,  a co-author said, “It is very sad. It's a pity that death is inevitable and we will all die one day. But what pained me most about his death is that he did not reap the fruits of his labour. What is the purpose popularity when you can't even afford to take care of yourself? He spent all his whole life entertaining people and making them happy and it's a pity  his own life ended this way.”

According to his family, The wake keep and the service of songs will hold on May 25, at ST James cathedral, Oke Bola Ibadan, and he will be laid to rest on May 26 by 10am, at the same venue.
