Another tragedy has struck in the Nigerian movie industry as veteran actor Rich Oganiru passes on.
According to the reports, the veteran actor died on Tuesday, August 10, after being ill for months.
Further reports revealed that two weeks ago, a video of Rich Oganiru lying on his sickbed and begging for financial assistance surfaced on social media.
The caption of the post read, ‘Please, everyone should reach out before he dies.’
Rich did not survive the illness as the sad news of his death was announced on Facebook last night by his friend who wrote:
‘Sunset At Noon, Tuesday 10th August 2021!
Ahem… I’ve lost a good friend like a brother for years, a great Nollywood actor par excellence. I’m just speechless. R.I.P Amb. Rich Oganiru. RIP Amb Rich Oganiru. Well, his sad demise reminds me of a song “Celebrate me while I am still alive”.’
This comes a few days after Nollywood lost veteran actress Rachel Oniga.
