Nollywood mourns loss of veteran actor Zulu

The first few months of 2024 have been heartbreaking for the Nollywood industry, with the loss of more than five entertainers, including actors and crew members. Tragedy has struck again with the passing of veteran Nollywood actor Zulu Adigwe.

Adigwe died on Tuesday evening, and his death was announced by popular film producer and singer Mike Nliam the following day. Nliam took to his Facebook account to pay tribute to the late actor, writing: “An icon has passed on today. A rare gem with a fantastic sense of humor! I watched Uncle Zulu on TV as Mr. B on the hit Ken Saro Wiwa TV series ‘Bassey & Company’ back in the 80s when I was in secondary school.

“We became close in 2003 when I cast him in the movie ‘Blood Diamonds,’ which was shot on location in Sierra Leone immediately after the country’s civil war.”

Nliam went on to describe Adigwe’s impressive career, stating: “Uncle Zulu starred in a thousand and one Nollywood movies and endeared himself to audiences across the world with his great baritone voice and acting skills. He was also a music enthusiast, which led him to collaborate with Abay Esho and myself on a song he wrote titled ‘Ugo Buluum’.”
