The news of his death drew reactions from prominent Nigerians including the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo who said, “Baba Suwe’s death had left a vacuum that would take some time to be filled in the entertainment industry.

Baba Suwe’s popularity began after he featured in Iru Esin, produced by Olaiya Igwe in 1997. Other movies he starred in include Arewa Okunrin, Owo laso oge, Obáj’obalo, Àkóbí gómìnà, Ojabo Kofo, Teni Teni, etc.

The actor was in 2011 accused by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency of trafficking cocaine. This was later ruled as false and defamatory by a Lagos High Court. However, the outcome from the torture and all he went through took a negative toll on his health hence the illness and later death.
