Nollywood actor Chikezie Uwazie has died in the United States of America after a second brain surgery.
This comes a few hours after the sudden deaths of two other popular Nigerian actors, Saint Obi and Murphy Afolabi.
Sharing the news of his passing on her Facebook page on Sunday, actress Obey Etok Chima wrote, “I can’t imagine I am posting this. Chikezie Uwazie goneeeee.
”After a second brain surgery, Gini na emezi. I was so shocked to get this news this evening. I 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 ago, but I didn’t see you. I can’t believe you are gone, but God knows best. Rest on Chyko.”
Uwazie’s death is the third in Nollywood in less than 72 hours, after St. Obi and Murphy Afolabi.
