The last words of veteran Nollywood actor, Don Brymo Uchegbu, who passed away in the early hours of Thursday, June 15, has been revealed.
It was gathered that the actor fainted while filming a movie in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, earlier this week and was rushed to the hospital.
He was reportedly diagnosed with high blood pressure and partial stroke, after which he was discharged from the hospital and taken to his hometown in Akwa, Anambra state, to be given traditional treatment.
According to an insider source, his caregiver predicted that he will be fine and back to health in three weeks. However, things took a different turn when he slumped on Thursday morning and died.
“I was told his last words were: ‘Odogwu has turned to vegetable’. He said it in Igbo before taking his last breath,” the insider said.
The 56-year-old actor is survived by his wife and four children.
In other news, veteran Nollywood actor, Harry B Anyanwu, recently clapped back at an Instagram follower who made an unpleasant comment on a video he recently shared online.
In the video, Harry B and Brymo were seen shirtless in a room, dancing to the song while wearing big chains around their necks.
The clip garnered hilarious reactions from social media users who found the duo’s display amusing.
However, a lady’s comment seemed to have angered the actor, prompting him to curse her.
Writing in Igbo language, she commented, “Umu agadi ekwenkas” which means “Old men that have refused to get old.”
Harry B, who didn’t find the comment funny, immediately fired back.
“I wish you never get old onye mgbu,” he angrily responded.
