Nollywood Actor Chikezie Uwazie is dead

Nollywood has again been thrown into mourning as another actor, Chikezie Uwazie, was reported dead a few hours after the death of two popular actors, Saint Obi and Murphy Afolabi.

Uwazie reportedly died in the United States of America a few days after he underwent a second brain surgery.

The news of his death was shared by his colleague, Obey Etok Chima;

 “I can’t imagine am posting this. Chikezie Uwazie goneeeee. After a 2nd brain surgery. Gini na emezi. Am so shocked to get this news this evening. Just got this from our IMSU alumni platform.

“I thought you told me you were going to the states for greener pastures. You promised to come back some years back but I didn’t see you. Can’t believe you are gone but God knows best. Rest on Chyko.”

Chikezie Uwazie who is one of the leading stars of the early 2000s in Nollywood left Nigeria for the US over seven years ago.

Before he relocated, he featured in several Nollywood flicks including the movie, “Musical Whispers”, a film on Autism, produced by Ebele Okaro and directed by Bond Emeruwa. He was also in “Village Destroyer” alongside Osita Iheme, Ugo Ugbor, and “Last Kiss”, where he acted alongside Emeka Ike, Ini Edo, Ejike Asiegbu and Mercy Johnson Okojie, among several other movies.

May his soul rest in peace.
