His son, Tunde Odumosu, broke the news in a telephone call to our correspondent on Sunday evening.
Tunde, who lives in Lagos, said his father gave up the ghost at about 12.30 p.m. on Sunday.
He said, “I was called that his condition had deteriorated on Friday but when I called him he didn’t sound so frail. I recall him asking me when I was going to come to Abeokuta and I told him I was coming on Sunday. I was told he was taken to the general hospital in Abeokuta but they had so many emergencies and he couldn’t be attended to.
“So they took him to a private hospital. I was headed to hospital to see him when I was called that he had just passed on. I was already in Abeokuta at the time. His death is so painful but I take solace in the fact that he lived a great life and is currently resting at the bosom of the lord”.
A popular Yoruba actress, Foluke Daramola, also shared the news on her Instagram page.
The actor was diagnosed with heart ailment in 2013. A former Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, donated N2 million towards his medical treatment in the same year.
Ms Daramola launched a lifeline for ailing and other aging Nollywood veterans in December 2019.
The initiative was tagged ‘Nolly veteran SOS Project 2019’.
Pa Kasumu was one of the beneficiaries of the initiative.
The sight of a visibly sick Pa Kasumu at the gathering had the likes of Yinka Quadri and other actors in tears.
