  1. TIME FLIES! I wouldn’t have believed it was January that Mrs Kosoko died. I looks like just the other day. Requiescat in pace!

  2. All these deaths was actually foretold by a certain prophet at the begining of this year but know one took him seriously.

    I don‘t know why the searchlight of death seem to be focus on Nollywood this year.

    Just like fife commented, I believe the list is far from complete.
    May God have mercy on their gentle souls.


  3. all this within 9month… na wao.. whatever may be causing this should please take a long term break (since we know death is inevitable) and let us enjoy our cast.

    may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

  4. nollywood should seek God face and create an insurance policy that cover those that need help. Rip to the dead.

  5. Many souls lost in daily basis. Nothing is wrong with industry or is it because they are celebrities. Every living beings should seek the face of God, not just celebrity.
