Veteran Nollywood actor Zulu Adigwe has tragically passed away, leaving the Nigerian film industry in mourning. Adigwe’s death was confirmed on Tuesday evening, with the news being shared on Instagram by movie producer Stanley Nwoko.

“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 in his post.

A Career Remembered

Zulu Adigwe was a well-respected figure in Nollywood, known for his memorable roles in popular films such as “Living in Bondage” and “Breaking Free.” Born in Enugu, Adigwe spent most of his childhood there before moving to Austria for his primary and secondary education. He initially pursued studies in French and German and worked as a teacher before briefly exploring a career in Medicine.

After the passing of his father, Adigwe returned to Nigeria and enrolled at the University of Ibadan, where he studied Theatre Arts and graduated with First Class Honours. His academic achievements and dedication to the craft of acting solidified his reputation as a talented and versatile performer.

A Year of Loss for Nollywood

The passing of Zulu Adigwe adds to the string of losses that Nollywood has experienced in 2024. Earlier this year, the industry bid farewell to Sisi Quadri, Mr. Ibu, Amaechi Muonagor, Andy Best, Jumoke Aderounmu, and Junior Pope, marking a somber period for Nigerian cinema.

As the news of Adigwe’s death spreads, tributes pour in from colleagues, fans, and industry insiders, honoring his contributions to Nollywood and celebrating his enduring legacy on screen.
