Tragedy has again struck Nollywood as the movie industry lost one of its actors, just as Nigerians are yet to come to terms with the death of Goldie.
Popular Abuja based actor, director and producer, Collins Ifeanyi Chukwu is dead.
He died yesterday at the Maitama General Hospital after a brief illness.
The news, which was confirmed yesterday by the chairman of the Abuja chapter of the Actors guild of Nigeria, AGN, Ifeanyi (Agility) Onourah, has thrown the Abuja chapter into mourning. The usually boisterous Access Garden, which is the official location of the guild’s activities, was full of tears and wailing yesterday.
Chukwu and his wife Blessing dedicated their son, Doxa Efechukwu Collinns, on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at the Christ Chosen Church of God, Gwarimpa, Abuja, after which his parents treated entertainment practitioners to a lavish ceremony at their Jikwoyi residence.
Reacting to his death, Frank White, chairman of the Producers Guild of Nigeria, Abuja Chapter said, “It is quite unfortunate that the young lady has been widowed at this early age with such a little boy. This is a big loss, not only to the family, but to the entertainment industry in Abuja.”
The late Collins is well known for producing gospel movies. He produced ‘The Burning Flames, el-Gibor, Back to Bethel, and was before his death, working on another blockbuster.
Until his death, he was the PRO elect of the Actors guild of Nigeria, AGN, Abuja chapter.
He is survived by his wife and kid.
