Rest In Peace… Veteran Actor, Enebeli Enebuwa Passes On



Sad news has filtered through the Nigerian entertainment community that the veteran Nollywood actor, Enebeli Enebuwa has passed on. He reportedly died on Tuesday night at a hospital in India after a protracted ailment.

Enebuwa who has been down with stroke for more than a year now was once in the news over a controversial healing by the General Overseer of Perfect Christianity Ministry, Surulere, Pastor Sign Fireman. The Pastor reportedly claimed to have healed him, posting a video of his healing on YouTube. However, Enebuwa’s family later debunked the Pastor’s claim.

Enebuwa was moved to an Indian hospital with funds put together by some Nollywood actors. His condition is said to have worsened some days back.

May his soul Rest In Peace. Our prayers and well wishes to his family.

      I am greatly sad on the death of an icon Enebeli Enebuwa. May his soul rest in peace.
      Why did they sent him to India when we have TB Joshua in Nigeria. Why?

    tutut…not cool…. awwww… I was hoping that he would be much better even said prayer for him when he was moved to India for better medical treatments. Plus he looked better and much fitter in the pics after the moving. I am glad he passed away happy although in pain, I think he might have been happy.

    God comfort his family and his loves ones. May he experience the joy after life brings. May he always be remembered in blessed memory…
