His corpse was moved from Isolo General Hospital mortuary, where he was kept after medical experts pronounced him Brought In Dead (BID).

Afolabi who was dressed in white was put in a transparent coffin.

Among those at the burial included the President of the Theatre Arts And Motion Pictures Practitioners Association Of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Bolaji Amusan, popularly called Mr. Latin, Mercy Aigbe, Damola Olatunji and Hafeez Owo.

Murphy, who started acting at a young age, celebrated his birthday on May 5, 2023.

His first stint in professional acting began under the guidance of veteran actor Fasasi Olabankewin (Dagunro) in 1998.
