Mourning the deceased, actor Muyiwa Ademola, shared a video on his Instagram page early Thursday saying, “This is a very hard pill to swallow! How could this jolly good fellow just depart this world in this manner? Hmmm… it is well.
“Please be kind to one another as we don’t even know what we are individually passing through! I learnt Peteru died of cancer. You were battling such burden yet I never saw you without a smile! It is well. It is well. It is well. Journey well great guy. I am out of words tonight.”
