I just got the news that my brother and veteran Nollywood Actor, Prince James Uche is gone! I have no words to describe how I feel right now. I am one of the few people who worked with Prince on his first major Nollywood Film project. He was a great guy. Always full of positive energy and ready to dispense it.
Gosh! Nollywood has already lost too many gems in recent years but this one cuts deep. I take it very personal. My heart is crushed.
Rest in peace my brother and friend- Arinze Okonkwo
