Legendary Nigerian Actor Zulu Adigwe Passes on

Adigwe worked as a teacher, studied French and German, and took a short break to study medicine before returning to Nigeria following the death of his father. He studied Theatre Arts at the University of Ibadan. 

Veteran Nigerian actor, Zulu Adigwe, has reportedly passed away. Film producer Stanley Nwoko confirmed his passing in an Instagram post, but the cause of his death is still unknown. 

“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,” Nwoko wrote.

Adigwe’s death follows the recent passing of Junior Pope in a boat accident while travelling to a filming location. Earlier this year, the Nigerian film industry lost actors such as Adejumoke Aderounmu, John Okafor, Sisi Quadri, and Amaechi Muonagor.
