“Junior Pope’s death could have been avoided” – Yvonne Jegede shares her two cents as she reads the riot acts to Nollywood producers (Video)

Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede has given her two cents into the painful demise of her colleague, Junior Pope.

It is no longer news that the actor lost his life after drowning at Anam River while returning from a movie shoot in Anambra.

Yvonne noted how his death could have been avoided if only he had worn a life jacket or if Nollywood producers had done better. She stated that she has been angry since his demise because she knew the incident could have been avoided, but his death has served as a lesson to others.

She further noted how many people blame him for not getting a life jacket, but she pointed out many would have done the same.

Reading the riot aft to movie producers, she told them to do better and to give up being a producer, if they can’t produce a good film.

“Hi guys, I have been very very angry because what happened is something that could have been avoided but here we are and we’ve all learnt.

Yes, we blame him for not getting a life jacket before getting on the boat, but it is something that a lot of us will do. I know some actors that will not get on that boat without a life jacket, they will demand to have it no matter the names you call them. A lot of us will still do it.

These days, everybody wants to be a producer. If you can’t produce a good film, pack up”.
