Veteran actress, Rita Edochie has urged people to desist from questioning the deaths of Nollywood movie stars.

According to her, death is only a displeasing call of nature that comes knocking and cannot be avoided.

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

According to her, “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 added 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 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.

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