-Wins Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’s N.5 million
It’s a moment of jollification and celebration for the veteran actor, Kayode Odumosu, otherwise known as Pa Kasumu, who is now bursting out of his health challenge. The ace thespian has finally moved into his new three bedroom bungalow in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
According to an industry source, the talented role interpreter has moved from his Alayaki, Mushin, Lagos residence, where he had lived for about 10 years.
The source said that despite the recuperating state of the ace comedian, he was still very much joyous and excited about the new development, singing praises in appreciation of what God has done in his life.
“Pa Kasumu is very happy at the moment. He has finally moved into his new house in Abeokuta, Ogun State. I learnt he relocated on Thursday, April 17, 2014. I also learnt that his former place in Mushin, Lagos, has been occupied by another person. I learnt he should have moved to the place since January but due to the delay in the renovation of his newly acquired house. He was asked to remain in Mushin till everything was completed. I really thank God for him. He has started a new life entirely.”
An inside source also revealed to ENCOMIUM Weekly that fortune has continued smiling on the renowned film maker as he has just won N500,000, via the popular MTN sponsored television programme, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (WWTBAM).
“I learnt Pa Kasumu just won N500,000 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire programme, and he is so happy about it. I believe with that, his dream of travelling abroad for further treatment will soon be realized.”
ENCOMIUM Weekly, in a bid to confirm the news, put a call through to Pa Kasumu’s mobile phone on Friday, April 18, 2014, but it was picked by a woman who identified herself as his younger sister. She told us that the Odogbolu, Ogun born theatre practitioner was out of town at the moment.
“Pa Kasumu is not around, but he left his phone. He travelled out of Ogun State. He went for treatment. I will inform him as soon as he returns.”
We later contacted his spokesperson and coordinator, Save Pa Kasumu Initiative, Mrs. Idowu Olajide, and she confirmed to us that the comic thespian has relocated to his new Abeokuta, Ogun State home, adding that he is happier and much better now.
“It’s true that Pa Kasumu has vacated his Mushin, Lagos residence finally. He left on Thursday, April 17, 2014. He now lives permanently in Abeokuta. You will soon be invited to the place. He would be happy to grant you a full interview to show his appreciation to all that stood by him till date. He only comes to Lagos on Tuesday of every week for treatment. He is very much better now.”
Asked to comment on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’s N500,000 prize said to have been won by Pa Kasumu, she reacted, “It’s true that he won the prize but he is yet to collect the money. It’s not a kind of money that’s paid instantly. But hopefully, very soon, he will collect it.”
