Nollywood loses a Veteran Actor

By Obiajulu Chiagoziem.

Nigerian actor, Victor Olaotan, who become known through his role in the award winning TV drama series Tinsel was reported dead yesterday by his family. He died at the age of 69.

His wife announced his passing on Instagram.

“He has tried. It is not easy to be trapped in your own body for five years. He can finally rest now.”, she wrote.


The late actor was involved in ghastly motor accident sometime in 2016 and subsequently was bedridden for years, and suffered different illness since then. We also learnt that his colleagues in the movie industry at a time, funded a health scheme to see him get on his feet again, but that didn’t help.

Rest on, Mr Olaotan.
