Nollywood actress, Chioma Grace Ifemeludike who is famously addressed as Ifemeludike, has taken to her social media handle to express how disappointed she is over lack of recognition her colleagues in Nollywood shows towards old veteran actors who are dead. She revealed this following the death of an old veteran actor called PA Benjamin Nwani Okolo.
Recall that PA Benjamin Nwani Okolo who was a renowned Nollywood actor is a native of Ogbaku, in Awgu local government area of Enugu State. He is a very talented actor and was once a director at University Teaching Hospital (UNTH) Enugu. But it is quiet unfortunate that the veteran actor is no more as he died on 21st of February, 2021 after a brief illness.
However, actress Ifemeludike has slammed Nollywood for not acknowledging the death of the veteran actor, PA Benjamin Nwani Okolo, knowing fully well that he was part of them.
She wrote, "How old veterans die without acknowledgement or recognition from Nollywood is really shocking, like these men were part of us, we shared memories with these elders but once they get sick and die they're barely rememberd or celebrated especially if they were not very popular...is this not hypocrisy???"
She added that, "PA Benjamin Nwani Okolo, was a renowned nollywood (elder) actor, died 21 Feb. 2021. (As seen on Facebook). Until his death he was once a director at UNTH ENUGU, and a very talented actor. Nollywood we can do better!!! RIP sir. May God grant his family the fortitude to bare such a loss."
