A prominent Nollywood figure, Chris Ekejimbe is dead.

Ekejimbe, a filmmaker and owner of 4Screams Production Company was a board member of the Association of Nollywood Core Producers (ANCOPS) and founder of notable Nollywood social media group, Film4Life.

News of his demise was broken to members of the group by founding president of ANCOPS, Mr. Alex Eyengho early Saturday.

“Folks! Sad day for Nollywood! Chris Ekejimbe just passed on a few moments ago at LUTH. Lord have mercy. I just spoke with the wife!” Eyengho stated.
