Cassandra, Another Nollywood Actress Dies

Nollywood Actress Dies The Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood, is mourning again as star actress, Cassandra Gabriel, is dead.

The actress, who was more popular playing one of the major roles in AK Media’s television drama, Face-2-Face, died on Saturday after a protracted illness suspected to be breast cancer.

A spokesperson of AK Media Concepts confirmed the death of Cassandra, whose stage name was Sisi Caro, to NollywoodReel yesterday, but details of her death were still sketchy as at the time of filing this report.

The late actress’ colleagues who spoke with NollywoodReel described her death as another devastating blow to the entertainment industry, describing her as one of the role interpreters who made Nollywood what it is today.

“Honestly, it is a shocking and sad development because she was quite intelligent and talented. She ranked among the calibre of people who can actually take this industry to the next level with their talents. She will be missed greatly,” said actress Titi Osinowo.

Chief Executive Officer of AK Media Concepts, Benson Akindeju, said: “I still find it difficult to believe that she is actually gone. Cassandra was one of the best behaved actresses that have worked on my set. And she was talented too. May her soul rest in peace.”

    (of Aondoakka) that she was dropping her case angsait him cos she didn’t want to give him cheap media publicity. That is exactly my case of her now. She is simply running her mouth too much. Was she not the one that once said ‘all’ was well with Yaradua earlier at the onset? Was she not the one that lied (oops, said) in the aftermath of Mutallab’s incidence that the guy sneeked into the country? *thinking* i thot one can only sneek somewhere if one is declared wanted there? She is a wasted case (my opinion), the image (she got from NAFDAC) she is trying to redeem could have been effectively achieved if she had resigned immediately she re-canted and started (& rightly too) championing Yaradua is ‘incapacitated’.’Nollywood epic’, hmmm, really there ought not have been any epic if only Jonathan had guts.Who cares whether Yaradua is impeached or declared incapacited NOW? Afterall, Jonathan is already the acting President with FULL PRESIDENTIAL POWERS? What will Jonathan DO if he is sworn-in President that he CANNOT DO now?Jonathan should dare to be a ‘man’ even if just this once (and stop waiting for every other person to do his job for him). People that don’t like him still won’t like him anyways, moreover, what has he got to lose? PDP (his ‘party’) has declared they won’t field him for presidential elections in 2011. He (unfortunately) cannot be Vice President again hoping to run in 2015 (when it will be the ‘Southerns’ turn again according to his party). Head or tail, this is the peak, zenith (& full stop) of his political career (unfortunately) with respect to Nigeria. Well, inretrospect, he can choose to become either a godfather or an elder statesman (the chioce is his).Jonathan has a singluar and RARE opportunity to carve his name in the sands of time in the history of Nigeria’s politics. His time is short (less than one ‘effective’ working year) and he can hardly achieve much in terms of policies et al. Why doesn’t he dared to get the Electoral Reformed Bill passed into law so, we can be sure that the ground works for credible elections in 2011 has been laid, damning his party’s perceived ruling for the next 60years? Rather, he is setting up a presidential advisory committee to tell us what we already know which he is obviously not going to do anything with the report they submit anyways. Let’s even assume he plans to do something with whatever report they submit, where will he have the time to actualise the recommendations?Acting PRESIDENT Jonathan should DARE to be a Daniel (a character in the Bible) just this once. History will certainly not be kind to him if he fails this time.
