Talented Nollywood movie producer Chukwuka Emelionwu has been reported dead. It was reported that he died after being involved in a ghastly accident.
Late Emelionwu died on Wednesday, January 17, while on traveling to his village in Anambra, along Oraukwu road. He was the owner of KASVID pictures.
Mourning the deceased is award winning Nollywood actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot, who shared picture of him and described him as the one who brought so much joy to TV screens. Elliot added that he does not know how much of such news Nollywood can take.
His post reads: “How do you wake up to such a heart breaking, devastating news . KASVID? Gone! This is indeed a tragedy, my heart weeps for NOLLYWOOD my beloved industry once again. Is it a crime I ask? Is it a crime to give your children’s hands in marriage. Chukwuka Emeliowu AKA KASVID certainly wouldn’t be doing that anymore because he’s gone so soon and so unceremoniously. I am truly in tears. A man who brought so much joy to our screens , put food on the tables of many actors and film makers, a man who made stars, a man behind the camera, a film producer, marketer, distributor gone with the wind ‘ghastly motor accident ‘ REALLY! We don’t know how many more of such news Nollywood can take. NOLLYWOOD IS TIRED, THE STRUGGLE IS TOO MUCH. I celebrate you KASVID. To borrow the words of my mentor @lancelotImasuen: Emeliowu I nor fit cry, I nor sleep. Ah inor fit come and go and die... Death. Death ah death. Okay…okay... It’s alright ooo.”
