Chikezie Uwazie, a Nollywood actor, has died in the United States.
The actor reportedly died a few days ago after a second brain surgery.
His colleague, Obey Etok, made the announcement on her Instagram page late Sunday.
She wrote, “I can’t imagine am posting this. Chikezie Uwazie goneeeee. After a second brain surgery. Gini na emezi. Am so shocked to get this news this evening. Just got this from our IMSU alumni platform. I thought you told me you were going to the States for greener pastures.
“You promised to come back some years back, but I didn’t see you. Can’t believe you are gone, but God knows best. Rest on Chyko”.
One of the leading stars of the early 2000s, Chikezie Uwazie left Nigeria for the United States over seven years ago.
Before he relocated, he featured in several Nollywood movies including, “Musical Whispers”, a film on Autism, produced by Ebele Okaro, and directed by Bond Emeruwa.
He was also in, “Village Destroyer” alongside Osita Iheme, Ugo Ugbor, and “Last Kiss”, where he acted alongside Emeka Ike, Ini Edo, Ejike Asiegbu and Mercy Johnson Okojie, among several other movies.
His death came as a shock to the film industry, which is yet to recover from the deaths of popular Nollywood actors, Saint Obi and Murphy Afolabi.
