The Nigeria movie industry Nollywood, is once again thrown into mourning as one of its actors Ernest Asuzu is reportedly dead.
According to reports, the veteran actor who some months ago went viral for begging on the streets, slumped and died around 9pm on Tuesday.
His wife, Jennifer Asuzu, who confirmed the sad incident to newsmen said he fainted on Tuesday evening and never woke up. She was then said to have called fellow actor Desmond Elliot to announce the death to him.
Azuzu who suffered stroke sometime ago was practically begging shoppers money to eat at some point in his life. When the news surfaced online, some colleagues in the industry including the Governor of Anambra State, Dr Ebelechukwu Obiano rallied round to support him.
His remains are on the way to the east for funeral rites.
May his soul rest in peace
