Veteran highlife music star, Fatai Olayiwola Olagunju, aka Fatai Rolling Dollars is dead.

He died in the early hours of Wednesday.

Before his demise, the octogenarian was hospitalised following a strange illness which hit him when he went to perform a couple of shows in the United States.

Confirming his death in a telephone chat with our correspondent on Wednesday morning, the music star’s wife, Zainab, who had been with him in the hospital said Rolling Dollars was moved from Ahmadiyya Hospital where he had been receiving treatment to an undisclosed hospital in Surulere where he gave up the ghost.

Prior to his demise, it was reported that the musician was unable to come up with N29, 000 balance of his hospital bill at Ahmadiyya Hospital.

Zainab told The Nation that the family has not decided on where he would be buried though internment has been fixed for 4pm on Wednesday.
