DEAR NOLLYWOOD, KEEP ROMANCING ASO ROCK WHILE YOUR CHILDREN ARE DYING IN SILENCE.

It has happened again and I will not be apologetic about how I express my mind towards this industry called Nollywood...What exactly is this industry all about when some of these actors cannot reach out for assistance but rather die in silence?..In Hollywood, we hear of overdose but in Nigeria, It is either the kidney, liver or the heart..Is there really an insurance policy as regards the mental state of every actor in Nollywood...?

To all those of you who gather for the sake of new mints all in the bid to secure your future..I say shame on you and please do not preach ''It is Gods will to me'' right now..An industry full of pharisees, selfish talents, haters and so on..If there is love, while will Muna lie about the need of money...?  Do you guys even check on yourselves..? All you flaunt around are your pool parties, movie premieres across the world, flaunting your mansions, cars and clinching with the presidency to acquire more wealth and camouflage it as Entertainment gathering or what...?

I am not here to go all moody and think like every blogger including the popular Linda Ikeji who also published his death but why are we not calling the industry to other considering the number of blogs that exist on the social media forum now...Do we even know the actor that is suffering in silence right now..It is a shame on the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria if the industry keeps loosing young talents like Muna Obiekwe.

We must not wait for them to pass on before realising how important they are..It is very easy to copy and paste images and tag with RIP but the life of every actor is very important and I know how a few struggle to get a life out of their career from dusk to dawn...All these sectional division in the industry should be stopped and every one should be duly under the Actors Guild umbrella.. I could say am guilty because It just dawned on me now that have not really been seeing him but alas death has thrown him in our faces and everybody starts changing their display pictures, updating their personal messages, bloggers are copying and pasting, tweeting and so on...

What exactly do these guys discuss with the president?...To smile home that there is a budget for their 2 weeks location film or what...? I also know that such diseases occurs among the Hollywood stars but majority are aged and the younger ones die of overdose, car accident and other avoidable incidences but in Nollywood, the story is pathetic just like this one...

Above all, I must give respect to the departed and I am sure he contributed meaningfully to the industry..I know there will be candle lights, wake keep and other ceremonies and you all shall gather in the name of paying your last respect but please when you are done, draw a list of your colleagues who have gone hiding..check on them, be concerned about their welfare if you are blessed enough...remember, we do not know the next person...
