Husseini Shaibu, a theater practitioner, reported his death on Sunday via his Twitter account.

He wrote;

I have just been reliably informed that the ethnomusicologist, former Music Instructor with #NATIONALTROUPE and one time stand in for the ‘Papa Ajasco’ character on the popular #waleadenugaprod comic series ‘Papa Ajasco’ Mr. Femi Ogunrombi is dead.”

Husseini Shaibu added;

I am told that the actor, singer, highlifist and trained nurse whom we fondly called ‘Uncle Ogurombo’ (not to his hearing though) passed on this evening (Saturday)

Ogunrombi was well-known for his part in the comedy series Papa Ajasco by Wale Adenuga.

When the previous character, Abiodun Ayoyinka, left the program, Ogunrombi assumed the role of Papa Ajasco and played it perfectly well while it lasted.

Over the course of more than 25 years, Ogunrombi has established himself in both the theatrical and music industries.

The late Papa Ajasco won numerous national and international honors, but his most notable achievement came in 1995 when he performed a song in the language of North Korea and was given a gold plaque and a diploma certificate in creative composition there.

The late Papa Ajasco actor also founded and oversaw the renowned Ayoro Voices, a performing choral group at the University of Ife, before his passing.
