How nollywood actor died

The Nigerian movie industry has been thrown into mourning with the death of veteran Nollywood actor and producer, Obi Madubuogwu.
The actor who participated in the movie Battle of Musanga died Monday from complications related to diabetes.
Most popular for his role as King Musanga in the 1996 epic, Battle of Musanga, by Gabosky and Chezkay Films, the Anambra-born artiste died on Monday.
His death was announced by veteran producer, Chidi Nwokeabia, who wrote in a WhatsApp post, “Obi is dead. We just spoke to the wife. He developed fever yesterday, went to the hospital this morning, had complications and died. The family will be taking the corpse home tomorrow.”
Newly elected president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas also confirmed the news of his death to Vanguard, saying “It’s sad that after receiving Obi’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 exco.
“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.”
