Nollywood has been in mourning following the death of one of their own.
Moses Ebere, a veteran filmmaker, is said to have died. The Abia-state native reportedly died in his sleep on Tuesday, March 22.
Amayo Uzo Philips, the director of the film, confirmed the tragic death on Facebook. He penned:
“Heard a very bad news about Moses Ebere, one of the oldest Nollywood veteran directors. Met him in the ’80s as a powerful editor and that was before the coming of Nollywood.
Spoke with him regularly recently because he was planning to come shoot in my state and I was helping him with an epic location.
This night one of our writer friend called me to say that Moses has passed on today.”
Born in Isiala Ngwa, Abia state, Moses began his Nollywood career as a film editor working on most Nollywood classics including Living in Bondage and Glamour Girls.
The UNIBEN graduate also edited Nigeria’s longest television series Ripples, produced by Zeb Ejiro.
