Another Nigerian movie star, Gbenga Richards, is dead.
Richards died early hours of Thursday, May 12, 2022 after reportedly battling with diabetes.
Before his death, his friends in the movie industry were said to have taken to the social media soliciting financial support for the actor who at the time had gone ‘broke’ due to his ailing health.
Gbenga Richards made his first appearance as an actor, when he represented Nigeria alongside late Hubert Ogunde at the Second World Black and African Festival of African Culture (FESTAC) in 1977.
He featured in blockbuster movies such as: ‘Sango’, ‘Mirror in the Sun’, ‘Betrayal by Love’, ‘Fighting Machine’ and many others.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
