The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has announced a four-day fasting and prayer session with Jerry Eze, the Streams of Joy International founder, against deaths in Nollywood.


In an Instagram post on Monday, Emeka Rollas, AGN president, shared an e-flier of the event themed: ‘Clearing the cloud of darkness over Nollywood’.

Rollas said “actors cannot continue to die like chickens,” adding that prayers are needed to avert more deaths in the industry.

He urged Nollywood actors and their supporters to join the programme to “deal with this ugly reproach”.


The prayer session is scheduled will be held at the M & M Center in Garki, Abuja from May 2 to 5.

“In view of the recent passing of our two veteran members and the devastating tragic boat mishap that claimed the lives of five active practitioners including Jnr Pope in Asaba, we have decided to seek divine intervention in fasting and prayers to avert similar occurrence in the future,” he said.

“Join us on the Alter of Fire from 2nd May to 5th may 2024 for prayers and declarations to deal with this ugly reproach. Actors cannot continue to die like chickens.


“Let us reclaim our spiritual airways and highways that seem to have been hijacked by certain powers. Other members of the Nollywood are free to join in this programme.

“I appeal to all NSPDians all over the world and all lovers of actors of Nollywood to join us in this programme.”

Since January 2024, Nollywood has lost more than eight actors including Mr Ibu, Amaechi Muonagor, Junior Pope, and Sisi Quadri.

Others who lost their lives include Olofa Ina, Adejumoke Aderounmu, Saratu Gidado, and Ethel Ekpe.
