Nollywood veteran actress, Rita Edochie, has urged Nigerians to refrain from questioning the deaths of movie stars, saying death is only a displeasing call of nature that comes knocking and cannot be avoided.

The well-known actress, who took to her Instagram page @ritaedochie to frown at questions like “What is happening in Nollywood?” said death is inevitable; “It knocks at everyone’s door, not just actors alone.”

“Celebrities are humans as well; the same way other people in different walks of life die, that is the same way celebrities die too,” she said.

She further stated that people easily react to news of the death of celebrities, either positively or negatively, due to their popularity, following the impacts they had made in the entertainment industry.

“If teachers, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, and women, even pastors can die, then what is so different about the deaths of filmmakers?

“People, especially in Nigeria, often come up with questions like; what is happening in Nollywood? Why are actors dying? something has gone ‘bla bla bla: what has gone wrong?

“Are actors not humans too? Please questions like this are annoying and ought to stop because death is only a displeasing call of nature,” she wrote.

Mourning Nollywood legend Amaechi Muonagor, who died on Sunday, March 24, after a prolonged illness, at the age of 62, Rita Edochie said the veteran actor tried his best to live, but when it was time for him to go nothing could stop it.

“It was too bad he couldn’t recover from this illness. Amaechi, ‘your departure has left an irreplaceable void in the midst of my family and I’.

“You were more than a brother and colleague; you were a beacon of light, illuminating our days with your infectious laughter and unwavering kindness.

“Your absence is felt deeply, as we remember the countless moments shared and the lessons learned from your wisdom,” she added.

Bellnews recalls that the Nollywood actress had solicited financial support for the late actor a few days ago.
