Zulu Adigwe, a seasoned Nigerian actor, has passed away. Reports indicate that he passed away on Tuesday evening.

The news of his death was shared on Instagram by well-known movie producer, Stanley Nwoko.

“I regret to announce the passing of a veteran actor, late Mr Zulu Adigwe.

“What caused his death is yet to be reviewed. Rest in peace good actor,” he added.

Adigwe’s passion for acting began at the age of seven. He made his debut on Nigerian television in Baci and Company, portraying the main character Mr. B, taking over from former actor Albert Egbe who departed the show due to a disagreement with the creator Ken Saro-Wiwa.

Adigwe also sang the new theme song for Basi and Company, and an album titled Mr. B Makes His Millions was launched by Polygram Nigeria in 1990.

In 1991, Adigwe was part of the original cast of Checkmate, playing the role of the university lecturer Monday Edem in the pilot episode. However, the role was reassigned when production shifted from Enugu to Lagos.

His debut film was Blood of the Orphan, which garnered him praise and recognition. In 2004, he starred in Living Abroad, directed by Elvis Chuks and featuring Ernest Asuzu, Emeka Enyiocha, and Anne Njemanze. In 2019, Adigwe appeared as Pascal Nworie in Living in Bondage: Breaking Free.

Adigwe’s passing will contribute to the growing number of actors who have passed away. Over the past four months, Nollywood has mourned the loss of six of its own. These include Sisi Quadri, Mr. Ibu, Amaechi Muonagor, Andy Best, Jumoke Aderounmu, and Junior Pope.

Junior Pope tragically lost his life two weeks ago when he drowned while returning from a movie shoot with his colleagues in a boat on the Anam River in Anambra State.

Just a day before his untimely demise, actress Jumoke Aderounmu, known for her role in Funke Akindele’s TV series “Jenifa’s Diary,” passed away at the age of 40.

On March 24th, veteran actor Amaechi Muonagor, who had been battling kidney issues for nearly a year, succumbed to his illness.

A week before his passing, Nollywood producer and marketer Ikechukwu Nnadi, also known as Andy Best, passed away after a prolonged illness at a private clinic in Owerri, Imo State.

In February, Yoruba actor Sisi Quadri passed away after being rushed to the hospital in his hometown of Iwo, Osun State, due to persistent hiccups caused by kidney-related problems. He was laid to rest the following day in Iwo, Osun State.

As Sisi Quadri was being laid to rest, veteran actor Mr. Ibu passed away at Evercare Hospital. He had been battling for his life for months and ultimately succumbed to a cardiac arrest. His death deeply saddened the industry, as he was beloved by many and had left a lasting impact on our childhood memories.
