The family of the late Chief Adebayo Faleti, has said that the late broadcaster, actor and playwright who passed away on Sunday, was about 95 years old and not 86 as being reported.
While condolences and tributes are still pouring in for the Yoruba literary icon, one of his grandsons, Gbemisola took to Facebook to correct the the belief that his kate father was 86.
He wrote: “I have had to speak to the media severally on this. He was born about 10 years before his officially declared age of 86 years. There was no record of his birth but from his accounts, he must have been born between 1918/and 1920. So the family has disregarded any official age before his death and agreed unanimously that he was 95 years. No contemporary of his is less than 92 and they all still claim that he was older than them.
“So please, be corrected, he was 95, not 86.
“That is the position of the family.
“Dec 26, 1921 – July 23rd 2017. Wikipedia has already effected this. Thanks a lot”.
