The Nollywood industry has been thrown into a state of mourning following the death of one of its promising actresses, Akingbemisola Dorcas on Friday, the 24th of March, 2023.

According to reports, Anjola, 33, was diagnosed with the ailment in 2021. As a result of this, she travelled to Dubai, UAE for chemotherapy which lasted about 6 months.

After her medical treatment in Dubai, she came back to Nigeria cancer-free and continued her acting career. However, tragedy struck on Friday, the 24th of March after Anjola complained of memory loss and headache.

She was rushed to the hospital, but, unfortunately, Anjola was pronounced dead.

The tragic news was shared by the late actor’s colleagues, Itele and Zainab Balogun who mourned her on their Instagram pages.

Taking to Instagram to mourn, Bakare shared her last moments with Dorcas. She fondly recalled praying together with her and the deceased assuring Bakare that she would stay strong and encouraging her to do the same.

Bakare also remembered the promises they made to each other, their photoshoots, and the plans they had. She questioned what would happen to the generous donation made by their male colleague, Ibrahim Yekini, better known as Itele.

She wrote:

“My Own GBEMI is sleeping. She said we will talk later. AKINGBEMISOLA. Remember how we prayed together. Remember How I said you were God’s favorite.
