Screen Legend Toun Oni Dies

Screen legend Toun Oni passed away yesterday morning according to 234Next.

The veteran actress and dancer, reportedly complained all night about feeling unwell, and was rushed to a hospital in Ebute Metta, Lagos after still persistent weakness, but unfortunately she didn’t make it, giving up the ghost before they arrived at the hospital.

Toun Oni was just 67 years old, with a career spanning over 30 years she will be fondly remembered for iconic roles in Checkmate, Fuji House of Commotion and many more Nollywood movies. She was given the prestigious Officer of the Order of Nigeria (OON) in 2006.

She is survived by children and grandchildren, one of who is actor and rapper Abounce. May her soul rest In Peace, and my thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this difficult time. She will be fondly missed.

Funeral arrangements are being finalized by her family.
