It is another very difficult period in the movie industry as they bid Nollywood actor, Obi Madubogwu, goodbye.
Obi, who had been battling with chronic diabetic sore for a while, developed fever on Monday evening and was rushed to the hospital, where he had complications and later gave up the ghost.
Madubogwu, who was known for his role as ‘King of Musanga’ was formerly on admission at the Federal Medical Centre (FCM), Ebute Meta, YABA, Lagos State. The actor was known for his lead roles in movies such as ‘Passion of my blood, ‘The King of Musanga’ amongst others.
The newly elected president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Mr. Emeka Rollas, confirmed the news of his death to Vanguard, saying “It’s sad that after receiving Oni’s congratulatory message on the telephone, he didn’t live to see me face to face and thereafter meet the reforms we are about bringing to AGN with this new excos.”
“Obi was part of this dream to see that I become the President of the Guild. Last year, I chaired the event organized by his Saving Life for Africa Diabetes Foundation. We talked about how I would use AGN to help drive his foundation if I become president of the guild. This is another sad day for Nollywood. May his soul rest in peace,” he said.
