He was just so engaging and entertaining that afternoon. I was with my wife and when I told her Chukwudi Bambino Anachina died today. She screamed, no.
“He wasn’t looking sick. Bambino was a very committed and devoted actor, production manager and highly enterprising creative entrepreneur. Humble, respectful and hardworking. I will never forget his role at all the wake keeps/night of tributes organised for departed colleagues.
“Chukwudi was a very instrumental participant who ran the events and showed so much passion to give a befitting respect to those departed colleagues. Now Nollywood will mourn you. Sad and painful exit because you didn’t show any sign you will leave so soon.”
