Popular socialite and owner of Movida Night Club, one of the pioneers of clubbing in Lagos, Akeem Shodeinde is dead, according to family sources.

Shodeinde, who has been down with diabetes and kidney failure for some years now, reportedly died on Sunday, May 10, 2015, after a relapse of the ailments after he had undergone treatments in UK and India.

Te business man had lamented his inability to stop smoking and drinking despite his condition even when he decided to give his life to Christ in an interview he granted a weekly magazine.

Read what he said here:

Smoking is an addiction. I can't lie to God because if I lie, I am deceiving myself not anybody but I have been praying to God to stop which I believe I will soon stop.

And the habit of drinking and smoking is the more reason I need to shut down the club because it's really affecting my only one working kidney which is not good for my health at all.

I need to take a medical check-up and balance my health because I only have one daughter and I want her to see me on her wedding day.

Well, he has finally succumbed to the cold hands of death.

May his soul rest in peace.
