The Nigerian movie industry has lost another veteran actor, Ernest Asuzu, to the cold hands of death.
Vanguard reports that the Nollywood movie star passed away on Tuesday, January 26.
Similarly, the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas, confirmed the news of the actor’s passing in a brief chat with Punch.
In his words:
“Yes, Ernest Asuzu is dead. I am trying to reach his wife to get the full details. I will get back to you.”
The deceased actor began his acting career in the ’90s and rose to prominence after he starred in the 1997 Nollywood classic, ‘Rituals’.
Asuzu was a top gun in the movie industry until he came down with a stroke in 2015 and it affected his speech. He was also bedridden for three years.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
