Pa Kasumu loses voice and sight ,and how he's been living in a face-me-I-face-you apartment in Lagos (photos)

Ailing veteran actor, Kayode Odumosu aka Pa Kasumu's state of health has deteriorated. New reports surfacing online, claim that he now has a high level of hypertension and has also developed an advanced cerebrovascular disease, a medical condition that is related to brain dysfunction which affects the blood vessels that transports blood to the brain.
This new development has impaired his memory as well as gradually eroding his speech. He is also gradually losing the vision in his left eye.
Meanwhile, Journalists paid a visit to the home of the ailing veteran actor and were surprised to find him in a multi-tenanted rooming apartment building, commonly referred to as ‘face-me-I-face-you in No 9 Alayaki street, Mushin area of Lagos.
NET reports thus:

"The actor’s room is in the upper part of the building where he shares a toilet and bathroom with many other occupants also living on the top floor.

The building is not only dilapidated but also gross with filth and debris in and around the compound. Typical of this kind of living environment,
households have to share facilities like the toilet, bathrooms and kitchen.

Pa Kasumu tries to speak, but is clearly inaudible enough to overcome the loud noise coming from the speaker of a nearby mosque. His second son, Babajide Odumosu who was at home to take care of him was happy to give our correspondent an update on the events so far.

‘This environment is really not helping him’ Babajide said. ‘The doctors say he needs a lot of rest. As you can see, there is no way he will be able to get that with this noise you are hearing right now. The worst part is, there is another speaker very close to his window on his bedside’A week ago, the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola became interested in Pa Kasumu’s condition and offered to help with the treatment. Babajide told us that they had undergone the series of test like the Governor instructed and are still waiting for further instruction from the governor. ‘The Governor had asked for my father to go through series of tests. The doctors have fully examined him and have sent Governor Fashola a report. We are still waiting to for the next step.’
