With four major deaths in Nollywood in 2017 alone, it has become a common question as to why actors die suddenly. The most recent death was Moji Olaiya. Actor Muyiwa Ademola has said the reason for the shocking death is because they work too hard.
He told Punch
“A very big problem we have in our industry is that we work round the clock, we spend nights at movie locations but we don’t go for medical check-up. I have a doctor and I go for medical check-up every three weeks. I know when to take some days off work. For instance, if I work for about two weeks, I take a few days off to relax. I would just eat and rest. I also make sure I go on vacations and all I do in those times is just to eat and sleep. Most of the deaths in the movie industry are a result of accumulated stress without paying attention to one’s health.”
