Star actor,Olatokunbo Olakunle,popularly known as Dejo Tunfulu,is not enjoying good health at the moment.
We gathered from an industry source that the comic actor who is popularly known for his imbecile character in movies is seriously down with chicken pox.
This,we were told,has made it difficult for the talented thespian to breathe well or even recognize people at the moment.
The condition of Dejo’s health informed why he was hospitalized in Owo,Ondo State where he was supposed to anchor an album launch alongside his friend and colleague,Akin James,a.k.a Akigbe.

According to the source,Dejo and Akigbe were in Osogbo,Osun State on Friday,February 17,2012,alongside some of their colleagues including Olaiya Igwe,Mr. Latin,Laide Bakare,Sanyeri and others on invitation by Governor Raufu Aregbesola for a road trek programme tagged,Walk To Live,slated for Saturday,February 18,2012.
The source further told us that it was during the programme that Dejo received a call from Owo to anchor an album launch which he obliged.
According to the source,the Abeokuta,Ogun State born role interpreter left Osogbo,Osun State on Saturday alongside his friend,Akigbe after they were through with Aregbesola with the hope of storming the event in Owo,Ondo State the next day.
Dejo landed in hospital that very day he was billed to perform.This,we learnt,distabilised Akigbe as Dejo’s situation got worse.
He was said to be in coma for hours,and when the situation was far from improving,he was aided with oxygen to stabilize his health.
Buoda Ode,as he is also known,was said to have been responding to treatment few hours later but suddenly,we learnt,the situation relapsed and was getting out of control.
Hence,the decision to refer him to Lagos University Teaching Hospital(LUTH),Idi Araba,Lagos,by the Federal Medical Centre,Owo,Ondo State where he was formerly hospitalized.
Close source says<b>Dejo Tunfulu is not feeling fine at the moment.I learnt he is down with severe chicken pox.He can’t eat,he can’t breathe well,he can’t even recognize anybody for now.
He was brought to Lagos in an ambulance with life support machine from Owo,Ondo State where he was formerly hospitalized,before he was referred to LUTH,Idi Araba,Lagos.
But I learnt he said he won’t go to hospital again,he prefers to be treated at home.That’s why he is still in his Akute residence now.But,one of his brothers took him to a spiritual home when the condition became suspicious.I am only praying for him that he regains his consciousness soon and bounce back.<b> the source said.
