” My brother we are still in shock! He was here with us but now he is no more. It was on Christmas Day, December 25, 2020. His demise followed complications arising from high blood pressure for which he had been treated.
He had returned delightfully to the only business he was so passionate about and had concluded his movie shoot barely two days before Christmas. His painful death was a tragic drama that took less than 10 minutes and there was silence.”
He went on to share how the late legendary movie producer and director’s absence will be felt.
”I’m going to miss him a lot! It is not easy losing your immediate younger brother who was so vibrant. But like I said, he was so supportive.
He is the first and last person I call everyday no matter what corner or part of the world I find myself; we talked everyday. I am going to miss him, the family will miss him and the industry is going to is him. Chiko was someone who worked so hard to raise the industry. I tell people I discovered the bar but Chiko took it to a new level by raising the bar. God used him to discover a whole generation of thespians.
He made avenues for people to put food on their table. The industry will definitely miss him because nobody has done the awesome number of movies he did. The industry will miss him and I will miss him greatly; all creative people will miss him.”
