Veteran actor, Kayode Dosunmu, popularly known as Pa Kasunmu, who was diagnosed with heart and liver-related diseases in 2013,has resumed work. In a chat with Saturday Beats, one of the children of Dosunmu, Tunji, said that the family was glad that their father had resumed work.
He said, “He has started work already, but people would not know because his recent works are not yet out on the television. About three weeks back, he concluded some production meetings and I was made to understand that he had resumed work already.
“Probably what I am telling you that he is working on might not come out this year. For somebody who has not been at work for over a year, he has to take things gradually. We the children are happy that he started work because we stand to gain a lot by him doing some physical activities. Sitting at home could make him sick the more.”
He told Saturday Beats that the family was concluding efforts in flying the veteran actor abroad for better treatment.
“For now, he is receiving treatment in Lagos and we give glory to God that he is a lot better now unlike when the ailment started. He will travel abroad for further medical checkup, but it is nothing serious; it is just for him to have a better option and to make sure that everything is fine.
“It is no longer like a distress call like before because as of last October, his condition worsened to the extent that he found it difficult to see and hardly remember the people he knew. But glory be to God, his condition has improved. Now, everybody is relieved but back then, nobody was at rest and I personally was very scared. It is just a growing concern that he has to be sent abroad for better treatment.”
