The family of the late Moses Olaiya Adejumo (a.k.a Baba Sala), has announced December 6 and 7 as dates for the burial ceremony of the legend.
His son, a Performing Officer at the National Troupe of Nigeria, Emmanuel Adejumo, popularly called Boisala, said the family was decided on the date for the burial.
Baba Sala, a Member of the Order of the Niger (MON), comedian, dramatist and actor, died on October 7 at 81 in Ilesa, Osun State.
He was recognised across the country as an icon of arts and entertainment, with some legislatures calling for a national monument to be named after him.
His body has since been deposited at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex Annex (Wesley Guild Hospital) in Ilesa.
