Veteran filmmaker, Chief Eddie Ugbomah, died yesterday, 48 hours before a scheduled surgery.

The respected filmmaker died in a Lagos hospital following a protracted illness. He was 78.

Although details of his ailment were not disclosed, Ugbomah had said it had to do with the nerves, his ears and brain.

His death was announced by Shaibu Hussein, a member of a committee set up to raise funds for his treatment.

“I have the permission of the Chair of the Chief Eddie Ugbomah Medical Fund Committee Alhaji Adedayo Thomas (DG, NFVCB) to break the news of the passage into eternity of the Veteran Filmmaker Chief Eddie Ugbomah, OON,” Hussein wrote on his Facebook wall yesterday.

“The veteran filmmaker died an hour ago at the hospital where he was scheduled to undergo a surgery on Monday. Sad…but we totally submit to the Almighty.”

Several persons in the Nollywood community have expressed their condolences.

Peace Anyiam-Osigwe condoled with Hussein and Paul Obazele, former president of the Association of Movie Producers (AMP).

“May the CHI bless all of you who came to his aid at this time and May his family and friends find the fortitude to bear the loss,” she wrote.

Keith Shiri, a programmer at the London Film Festival and collaborator of the Tarifa-Tangier African Film Festival (FCAT) also expressed his condolence.

“Very sad to hear the Chief’s passing,” he wrote.

“I was honoured to have been introduced to him by the late South African filmmaker Lionel Ngakane in Fespaco in the late 80’s. He was of a generation of filmmakers that paved a way for African Cinema. Let’s celebrate his life and May his work be preserved for future generations. Go well Chief.”

Filmmaker and promoter Mykel Parish Ajaere wrote: “Sad news. Lord lead him through a smooth journey home.”

Ugbomah had told The Nation in 2018 that his illness has “something to do with my ears and my brain”.

Some of Ugbomah’s works include ‘Rise and Fall of Oyenusi,’ ‘Oil Doom,’ ‘The Boy is Good,’ ‘Death of the Black President’ and ‘Apalara’ lamented that government had not come to his aid in his trying time.

Published

In a series of posts shared via her Instagram Stories on Thursday, May 12, 2022, the actress debunked Falegan’s claims.

“My fave ex be ‘babe when did you start wearing panties’ The joke is on you bro…the veejay smells like heaven and you know it,” she wrote.

She once again accused the politician of trying to use her name and their breakup to gain fame.

Blessing described Falegan as a failed politician without prospects.

The movie star’s latest rants came after Falegan released a video on social media where he called her out over her personal hygiene.

“I apologised to her because I just want bygone to be bygone. Not because I want her back. Are you serious? Do you know why I left? I left for a different reason. Personal hygiene,” he said.

“You have to tell a woman to change her pants in three days. You have to tell a woman to brush her teeth in the morning. After the whole thing, everywhere is messed up. You want me to manage that? No, I wouldn’t.”

“So if my online in-laws una dey vex, make una go marry am. And you think I should just manage it. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and that’s the fact. And if the online in-laws are saying you guys are perfect together, go marry am, una go understand.”

Falegan’s video came barely 48 hours after he apologised to the actress.

The politician admitted that he “messed up” during his relationship with the actress.

In April 2022, the former couple took to their Instagram accounts where they revealed that their union was over.
