Moses Ebere, an ace director who worked on Nollywood classics like ‘Living In Bondage’, is dead.
Amayo Uzo Philips, a colleague to the filmmaker, confirmed Ebere’s demise in a post via his Facebook page on Wednesday.
It is understood that he had passed away on Tuesday.
“[I] heard 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,” Uzo wrote.
“[I] spoke with him regularly recently because he was planning to come [and] shoot in my state.
“And I was helping him with an epic location. This night one of my writer friends called me to say that Moses has passed on today. Sad news for me.”
Speaking with TheCable Lifestyle, a source said the director’s guild in Abia state — where the deceased hailed from — is still working to ascertain the circumstances surrounding Ebere’s death.
“He’s a part of the directors guild. It’s just the death that the friends told us. Until the Abia state is able to contact the family to ascertain the position of things, we can’t say anything on the circumstances of his death,” the source said.
Ebere started out as a film editor in the early days of Nollywood.
He edited some of the earliest Nollywood hits and television series, including ‘Living in Bondage’.
Other projects he worked on are ‘Glamour Girls’ and Nigeria’s longest TV series ‘Ripples’ produced by Zeb Ejiro.
