Speaking on the recurrent deaths in Nollywood so far, if you recall, popular prophet Dr Faleyimu Olagoroye, and founder of Mountain of Blessing and Miracle Church of Christ who is known for churning out prophecies predicted the deaths of some Nollywood stars and this got fans worried.
In January 2019, Prophet Dr Faleyimu Olagoroye revealed during an interview that God revealed to him that 12 showbiz stars will die this year. Sadly, were even counting more than 15 as the prophecy of doom has been manifesting since the 3rd of January.
The prophet said, “Nigerian entertainment industry needs serious prayers. I mean the actors, musicians, comedians and related businesses under entertainment. They should be prayerful so that they won’t lose 12 stars among them this year. I see 12 of them dying untimely. They should also pray against sickness and hardship because they are going to face several tribulations this year but with prayers, nothing is impossible for God to do”.
