Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke, is still devastated over the death of his colleague, Vicor Olaotan, who died recently.

Okeke, as part of his tribute, said whenever he knots a tie, as simple as it may seem, he would always remember Olaotan, nicknamed Big Daddy.

The thespian via his verified Instagram account shared a flyer that shows the funeral arrangement for the deceased as he took the caption section stating, "As simple as it is… whenever I knot a tie… I’ll remember you. You taught me many things. One of them being having the presence of mind and staying power with our work.

"I remember resoundingly how I would keep you waiting sometimes at work and you would chide and scold… Ogidi… if there’s anywhere else you’re destined to be… right there will you be. You taught me to respect my gifts and skillsets. My work. Myself."

The actor continued, "I carry myself today with a certain sense of 'principle', and that is because I was close enough to you, to see Gravitas, walking on 2 feet.

"You joked, played, danced…like a kid! Nobody danced like You FADA! You taught me to chase knowledge. You made 'knowing' a sweet study. We all miss the moments. But the memories and its effect will forever live with us.

"BABA 9 LIVES! Even the professional 'hangman’s noose' had NOTHING on you. Those 9 times. REST MY GEE! BIG DADAAAYYYYY"

The late Olaotan had suffered a traumatic brain injury after a ghastly car accident in October 2016.

The veteran actor had celebrated his 69th birthday on February 17, 2021, in a Turkish hospital where he was being treated for his brain injury.
