Dec 17, 2012 – Stella Damasus On Enebeli Elebuwa’s Death: Nigerian Movie Stars Are Hypocrites

On Saturday Dec 15, 2012, the body of late veteran actor Enebeli Elebuwa arrives Lagos, Nigeria and surprisingly, no Nollywood star was present to receive him.

Highly compassionate mother of two, Nollywood actress Stella Damasus has opened up on the current issue ravaging the Nigerian movie industry.

In her remarks, Stella said Nollywood stars are hypocrites who care about their own bellies alone.

She said during the time of Enebeli Elebuwa’s sickness, all these hypocrites did was to snap pictures of him and share it on their social networking pages.

Read more on what she said below:

I’m very angry because the people in my industry are hypocrites,” she said. “That man was ill for a long time in lagos and they turned it into a fanfare. People would go and visit him and take pictures with him, post it on twitter, on Facebook, on their blogs; they used it to make people feel that they are philanthropists but nobody lifted a finger to take care of him or help his family.

“They are more interested in politics; who would be president, how they can visit dignitaries, who would dash them money. Nobody cares about the elderly people in the industry. We know how to celebrate people when they die, but when they are alive, what do we do for them, especially the sick ones?

“The Delta state government eventually sponsored him to India. I’m just very pained.”

Na wa o.

    it’s time Nigeria government should make provision for these artistes who throughout their life are bussy taking care of our emotional loneliness by their movies should not be left alone when they are sick or weak.At abroad that iam they are been taken care-of before they are sick and not necessarily when they are about to die,Most of these nollywood artistes are left alone. It’s time the government professionalise and institutionalised this nollywood so that the government could be responsible for the actors and actresses especially when they are old.If not this wickedness of stress and untimely death will never stop in nollywood

    Personally for me I don’t. Attend burial ceremonies unless maybe it bcomes imperative I di did buh offcourse I will ask d course of death first. For my conscience does not allow to celebrate a person who died due to the fact that there was no attention when he was sick. How can you spend so much money for burial of a man who would have lived if you gave hime that money during his sickness

    i read of Stella Damascus contribution towards the ailing actor.While IDIOTS like Genevive Nnaji,Ini Edo,Mercy Johnson,Ramsey Noah,Desmond Elliot,Jim Iyke etc with all their advert endorsment couldn’t help a veteran actor that contrbuted to the greatness of the nolly wood industries.

    I Believe is that Hollywood is just a name and not an association who cares about there members. They clam to stars when they cannot extend their brightness to their member. They are extremely selfish set of celebrities. SHAME.

    May his soul rest in peace; and may God almighty reward you stella. If I may digress a little, why is it that one can hardly read well writen comments here? our English is so horrible. If you cannot write correct English, just use pidgin or your vernacular. Stop disgracing us with your stupid grammar. I can hardly understand what you guys are writing. Gosh!!
