AGN Goes Spiritual Over Death Of Nollywood Actors

Following the recent tragic deaths in the Nollywood industry, the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has announced a four-day prayer and fasting in a bid this avert further reoccurrence.

The Guild’s National President, Emeka Rollas made the announcement in a post shared via his Instagram page on Monday, April 22.

According to him, the four days of fasting and prayers are due to the tragic loss of Nollywood actors from late last year 2023, to early this year, to the tragic boat mishap which happened a few weeks ago, that took the lives of Jnr Pope and four other promising young actors.

It would be recalled that the Nollywood industry also recently lost popular actors, such as John Okafor, also known as Mr Ibu and Amaeachi Muonagor over an undisclosed illness.

According to Rollas, the founder of Streams of Joy International Church, Pastor Jerry Eze, will lead the spiritual exercise, adding that prayer is essential to avert further losses in the Nollywood and urging all lovers of the industry to join the programme.


He wrote, “In view of the recent passing of our two veteran members and the devastating tragic boat mishap that claimed the lives of five active practitioners including John Paul Odonwodo, aka, Jnr Pope in Asaba, we have decided to seek divine intervention in fasting and prayers to avert similar occurrence in the future.

“Join us on the Alter of Fire from 2nd May to 5th May 2024 for prayers and declarations to deal with this ugly reproach.

“Actors cannot continue to die like chicken let us reclaim our spiritual airways and highways that seem to have been hijacked by certain powers.

“Other members of the Nollywood are free to join in this programme. I appeal to all NSPDians all over the world and all lovers of ACTORS of NOLLYWOOD to join us in this programme.”
