In February, the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) announced that it was making plans to help Ernest get back on his feet.
The president of the guild, Emeka Rollas, said, “Other AGN members have started responding to the directives of the association to help Asuzu. Ernest Asuzu is one of us. I’ve always identified with him since he had a s****e until there was a break in communication between us, but thank God we reconnected.”
Ernest Asuzu was also a rapper and producer. He is also known as El Cream and was born in Imo State.
He began his acting career in the 1990s and starred in several films such as “Royal War,” “Ogidan,” “Burning Desire,” “Never End,” “Broad DayLight,” “Last Wedding,” “Ugonna” and “Labista.”
