Moses Ebere, a veteran movie director in Nollywood, has passed on.
Ebere is widely revered for being the brain behind Nollywood classics such as ‘Living In Bondage’.
According to one of his close friends and colleagues identified simply as Uzo, the ace director died on Tuesday.
“[I] heard very bad news about Moses Ebere, one of the oldest Nollywood veteran directors. I met him in the ’80s as a powerful editor, and that was before the coming of Nollywood, ”
“[I] spoke with him regularly recently because he was planning to come [and] shoot in my state.
“And I was helping him with an epic location. This night one of my writer friends called me to say that Moses has passed on today. Sad news for me,” Uzo wrote.
According to a source from the Directors Guild of Abia, where Ebere hailed from, the cause of the director’s death is still uncertain.
Ebere began his journey as a film editor in the early days of Nollywood and edited major hits and television series, including ‘Living in Bondage’.
Other projects he worked on are ‘Glamour Girls’ and Nigeria’s longest TV series ‘Ripples’ produced by Zeb Ejiro.
