The entertainment industry in Nigeria has been thrown into another mourning mood with the death of popular Nigerian actor, Ernest Asuzu, who died last night, www.totorinews.com reports.
His wife, Jennifer Asuzu, who confirmed the sad incident , said he fainted on Tuesday evening and never woke up.
The president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, also confirmed his death.
“Yes, Ernest Asuzu is dead. I am trying to reach his wife to get the full details.” Rollas said.
Asuzu began his acting career in the ’90s and rose to prominence after he starred in the 1997 Nollywood classic, ‘Rituals’.
He was the toast of Nollywood until his career nosedived after he suffered a stroke in 2015 and it affected his speech.
He was also bedridden for three years.
His death came at a time when most of his fans believed that he was getting better and may likely bounce back to featuring in nollywood movies again, but sadly the cold hands of death snatched him away last night.
