Lots of tributes have started to pour in for Joshua Johnson, the Nollywood actor, who reportedly died on Thursday from a yet-to-be-disclosed sickness.
The actor’s death was confirmed by filmmaker Abel Alechenu on his Instagram page.
Alechenu wrote, “This one hit differently but all I can say is it is well. When I called your phone and it rang, I thought all I heard were just rumours until I was told by the voice, which wasn’t yours, that you had gone to be with the Lord.
“I wish I could hear it’s one of your many jokes. Our last conversation was our normal jokes. May God comfort your immediate family and us, your friends and fans. Thanks for all the memories. God rest your soul.”
Similarly, actress Elvina Ibru wrote on her Instagram page: “Josh, why na? The plan we had sitting under that tree on set was yam porridge at my place, not this! This was not the plan at all. Sleep well, my brother.”
Some of the late actor’s friends took to Facebook to mourn his death.
One of them, Godwin Brown, wrote, “OMG, this is unbelievable! He is so passionate in anything he does and he also keeps to his words. May his soul rest in the bosom of the Lord.”
Other celebrities, such as Joke Silva, Omawumi, Mofe Duncan, Monalisa Chinda and Andrea Chika Chukwu, in their reactions, prayed for the repose of Johnson’s soul.
