Reacting to the death of the 65-year-old thespian, the President of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Dele Odule, lamented that the nollywood star died without enjoying the dividends of stardom.
Speaking with newsmen, Odule said, ”It is very saddening. I know that death is inevitable and everybody would go someday. The most unfortunate thing about his death is that he did not reap the fruits of his labour.
”He never enjoyed the dividends of stardom. What is the essence of being very popular without having money to take care of himself? He spent his life entertaining people and making them happy and I am sad that his life ended that way.
“He was a member of TAMPAN and we would try to work out some things to immortalise him so that people would not forget him easily because he made a lot of contributions to the industry,” he added.
