Junior Pope: ‘It’s not a Nollywood disaster, people die every week’ – Actor Ugezu


Veteran actor and filmmaker, Ugezu Ugezu has reacted to the level of deaths rocking the Nigerian movie industry.

Saga Gist reports that some fans are suggesting that Nollywood may be under siege after over five actors, including Mr Ibu, Amaechi Muonagor, Sisi Quadri, Adejumoke Aderounmu, and the latest Junior Pope died within the first quarter of 2024.

Reacting via his Instagram page, Ugezu said it isn’t a Nollywood disaster as many alluded, explaining that people in other professions also die every week.

He said the difference is that the deaths of movie stars are publicised, stressing that the death surge in the country is due to “systematic destruction of the health sector.”

Ugezu wrote, “If only you knew how many bankers who kpai every week…if only you knew how many police officers who kpai every month…if only you knew how many pastors/priests who kpai every month…if only we have a clear data on citizens that kpai monthly, we may settle down and understand the systematic destruction of the health sector.

“Entertainers are domiciled publicly and theirs go viral always. Time has come to expunge spiritualism from clear system failure. It is not just a Nollywood disaster like many allude.

“It is a general system disaster.”
