Patience Ozokwor and Kate Henshaw, two of Nollywood’s top stars, spoke on ‘Rubbin Minds’ with TV host Ebuka to discuss Sam Obiago’s death and the year’s biggest highlights in the industry.
“In all of this weirdness and sadness because I know you (Patience) just lost a colleague,” host Ebuka queried the ladies, “it was still a very fantastic year for Nollywood,” he said.
Patience Ozokwor, who expressed her sadness after learning of Sam Obiago’s death earlier this month, had this to say about the situation:
“Sometimes you just break down. You know, we’re humans. Like Sam, I didn’t even get to hear he was – I’m always not hearing that somebody is sick and then I’ll just hear that the person is dead. And that’s like a bang. And I saw him recently and I wanted to tell him that he lost weight but I was like maybe it’s good for him, he needs to lose weight. But I didn’t know he had problems, that he was battling with anything. Very brave.”
Kate Henshaw also revealed her plans in 2022, saying:
” This has been an amazing year for Nollywood, I won’t even lie. God forgive me. It’s my best year in like how many years workwise. Back to back. And then of course ending the year and then starting the year, January. January is that harmattan month, forget December. January is nothing. You’ll just be waiting. One day seems like sixty. And for me I’m starting with a bang [Chief Daddy 2] and I have something else coming up, I have an announcement next year coming up. So I’m totally pumped but when you look around, you just try and share some of that because it’s not everyone. Of course I’ve had loss of friends and you’re wondering: should you be happy or should you be sad? How do you balance it without looking too loud? I mean, you care but you have to find a balance”
