Did Late Nollywood Actor Clems Onyeka See Death Coming?

Nollywood actor Clems Onyeka lost his life last week Tuesday after a strayed bullet hit from a gun battle between cops and robbers in Asaba, Delta State. Onyeka who was known for his quiet nature, probably saw his death coming. The actor wanted something written about before his death...

Barely two weeks before the fateful day, the actor called Potpourri and demanded to have something written about him. Then, he had just won an award and he wanted it written on the Potpourri column.

“My brother, I enjoy your column so much but nothing has ever been done on me yet, or are you waiting until I am dead before you write about me?”, he queried.
 To which I replied, “Clems give me something good to write about you and I will do it”.

Then he told me of the award he had just won but didn’t give me enough material to work on. He said he would get back to me but it seems that will never happen now. I still haven’t got over his death because it was something that told me in clear terms life has no sense of fairplay. I doubt if any story or interview had ever been done on him until his death. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
