Bandele, famous for directing the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie's classic novel, Half Of A Yellow Sun, is said to have died on Sunday, August 7. The cause of his death has not been revealed. He was 54 years old.
The statement released by his daughter reads in part;
"I am heartbroken to share the sudden and unexpected death on Sunday 7th of August in Lagos of my father Biyi Bandele.
Biyi was a prodigiously talented writer and film-maker, as well as a loyal friend and beloved father. He was a storyteller to his bones, with an unblinking perspective, singular voice and wisdom which spoke boldly through all of his art, in poetry, novels, plays and on screen. He told stories which made a profound impact and inspired many all over the world. His legacy will live on through his work.
He was taken from us much too soon. He had already said so much so beautifully, and had so much more to say.
We ask everyone to please respect the privacy of his family and friends as we grieve his loss."
May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
