This has to be the best internet find of the past decade. Kudos to who found all this information. It's sad to hear Badejo died of sickle cell.

Fantastic article. I really don't know how you managed to track them down. It's nice to have confirmation on what actually happened to him after Alien.

If anyone cares to, leave a comment on the blog. The family will be checking in to read them. Today would have been his 61st birthday. Show them and Bolaji some love, if you like :)

As interesting as this this article was (and as outstanding as it is) I'd even read a separate article about the research that went into it. This story is interesting as f**k, the story behind it has to be interesting also.

Just imagine a lot of finger-crossing, hopes dashed and fulfilled, e-mails sent, returned or lost, and a lot of cold, treacly persipration  :P

Excellent piece, Valaquen.  Badejo doesn't get enough credit for being one of the most convincing movie monsters ever.  You just helped changed that a little.

Kudos on your efforts and the awesome result.

Thank you. Bolaji deserves a Wikipedia page, at least.

I've always wondered what happened to him. Always assumed he just wasn't interested in the limelight. Sad to hear he died so long ago.
