Reports gathered from NAIJ.com indicates that a famous film producer Chukwudi Anachina aka Bambino has passed on.
Bambino who was also an actor and event compere, died on June 16, 2018. He is said to have died in his sleep. He graduated from the Federal Polytechnic in Oko, Anambra State.
Chris Ekejimbe, a member of the Board of Trustees of Association of Nollywood Core Producers (ANCOP) announced Bambino’s death after the late producer’s wife confirmed the death to him.
In a recent interview, Bambino had listed musician Tony One Week and veteran actor Pete Edochie as his mentors in the entertainment industry.
“My role models My mentor as is Tony One Week. He trained me beyond what I learnt in school. Before now, I was looking at Pete Edochie. I saw Edochie in Things Fall Apart and I said this is a man that suggests the future of what I actually want to raise and I came into the industry.
But beyond that, Tony One Week is the first person that put me on national television, the defunct Minaj Broadcasting International (MBI) and he was the person, who really gave me the platform that brought the best out of me. My father is also my role model. So basically, my dad, Peter Edochie and Tony One-Week are the people, who inspire me.”
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
His death is coming just weeks after veteran Nigerian musician Ras kimono also passed on.
