Nollywood Movie Stars are Humans – Actress Rita Edochie explains

Veteran Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has counseled Nigerians to stop questioning the deaths of Nollywood film stars.

She said that everyone must accept death as an inevitable call from nature.

Rita Edochie took to Instagram to voice her displeasure with inquiries such as “What’s going on in Nollywood?” She pointed out that death is an inevitable part of life. “It doesn’t just rap on actors; it raps on everyone’s door.”

She continued by saying that people’s reactions to the news of their deaths, whether favorable or unfavorable, are swift due to their celebrity status and the influence they had on the entertainment business.

Rita Edochie underlined how important it is to pay respect to the deceased.

She wrote:“If teachers, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, and women, even pastors can die, then what is so different about the deaths of filmmakers?

“People, especially in Nigeria, often come up with questions like; what is happening in Nollywood? Why are actors dying? something has gone ‘bla bla bla: what has gone wrong?

“Are actors not humans too? Please questions like this are annoying and ought to stop because death is only a displeasing call of nature”.

Rita Edochie offered her sympathies to the recently departed 62-year-old Nollywood actor Amaechi Muonagor, stating that nothing could save him from passing away in spite of his best attempts to live.


It was too bad he couldn’t recover from this illness. Amaechi, ‘your departure has left an irreplaceable void in the midst of my family and I’

“You were more than a brother and colleague; you were a beacon of light, illuminating our days with your infectious laughter and unwavering kindness.

“Your absence is felt deeply, as we remember the countless moments shared and the lessons learned from your wisdom,” she also added.

Recall that just a few days prior to the actor’s passing, Rita Edochie had asked for help.
