Veteran Nollywood Acrtress Cynthia Okereke is Dead
Cynthia Okereke, a veteran Nollywood actress, has sadly passed away, exactly one year after enduring a traumatic kidnapping experience. The heartbreaking announcement was made by her fellow colleague in the entertainment industry, Joseph Okechukwu.
Joseph, a filmmaker, expressed his deep sorrow, revealing that he had intended to pay for Cynthia Okereke’s flight ticket to America to continue their joint project. However, fate intervened, and she tragically passed away on Tuesday night.
“May you rest in peace, dear Nwanyi oma. I am utterly devastated and at a loss for words. The fact that I was on the verge of finalizing your travel arrangements to complete what we had begun, only to learn that you departed this world last night, is one of the most difficult things I have ever had to grapple with recently. I pray that I will be able to recover from this profound shock. Life truly is fleeting. One moment you have it, the next it slips away.
Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel were about this time last year kidnapped by unknown kidnappers but they were released safely despite the traumatic experience. She has starred in many Nollywood films.
