Reverend Dele Adejumoh, who is Baba Sala’s first son, says there is no reason to worry about his father’s health, insisting the aged comedian is being taken care of by his children.

He told Punch, “We are taking care of my father. He does not take care of any of his children again and he does not pay school fees too. People are just being misinformed.

“As a family, we plan to celebrate our father. As soon as our plans are finalised, it will be communicated to the media.”

On a book on Baba Sala, Triumph of Destiny, which was unveiled recently at Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Lagos, the reverend said, “It is a good book and we appreciate everyone who contributed to its success because they did a thorough job. I am very happy my father is being celebrated while he is still alive. Baba is also very happy about it.  It is better we celebrate our icons while they are alive. We don’t need to wait until they’re dead before we begin to speak well of them. Apart from my father, we still have Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade, Victor Olaiya, Chris Ajilo and a host of others who have done great things for this country.”

Adejumoh also opened up that Baba Sala had nothing against the movie industry or Nigeria, saying that he was only interested in the growth of his church and his relationship with God.
