Friends and colleagues has taken to social media to react to the actors sudden death.
Tola Taye Balogun – Why do death come with its ugly claws and take people untimely? Why must someone be born in the first place when he is still going to die? To what end does death repay us for all the ups and downs of life? Who benefits at one’s death God or the devil? Kayode Durojaiye aka Biggy I cannot believe you are gone so soon. Last week we were together chit-chatting and laughing freely. I even congratulated on your new car and we prayed together. You were a good actor Biggy. One of your spectacular role that still leaves me bewildered is your role in one of my movies Aunty London where you played alongside Chiwetal Agu. Sleep well Biggy, the entire Nollywood will remember you. My heart bleeds.
