The full name of the actor was Sikiru Adeshina A.K.A Arakangudu. He was a Yoruba actor in Nollywood. He has passed away on January 8, 2016 in Kaduna State. At first there were rumors of him being dead and later on his fellow actor Prince Jide Kosoko delivered the sad news to the media.
The well built, popular and talented actor who is known for his mastery of the roles of herbalist and armed robber in most Yoruba movies we heard passed on few hours ago.
Sikiru Adeshina a.k.a Arakangudu was a versatile and handsome actor who was very good at what he does. Arakangudu during his days proved his mettle in the Yoruba movie world. He was also popular for his baritone-voice.Â This popular Nollywood actor was also known as just Sikiru Adeshina, see his photos.
During the later years of his life the actor did not get many roles in Nollywood movies. He was not seen or heard of and people wondered about his life and career.
In the early years he used to play armed robbers and such personages as Igba Owuro and Aje Olokun are also on his list of achievements. In 2015 he starred in Ayaba OosaÂ movie. You can find it on YouTube. Sikiru Adeshina is to be seen playing one of the palace chiefs in it.
The cause of his death is unknown for now. There are speculations that he might have had an asthma attack or even a spiritual one that killed him.
Over the last years he seemed to be fairly disappointed with his acting career and with friends turning away from him and forgetting him. He moved to the north and obviously was able to make a nice living there. The gossip states he planned on shooting his own movie, but now his talent is out of our reach. So sad!
We know that Adeshina was a Muslim. Presently his family did not make up its mind on whether to bury him at Kaduna or take his body to the south. R.I.P. Sikiru Arakangudu! May your soul have peace.
