Famous Nigerian televangelist, Jerry Eze, has started a four-day fasting and prayer session against deaths in Nollywood. The programme, which kicked off on Thursday, May 2, would end on Sunday with Prophetic Prayers and Declaration Service at Streams of Joy, Abuja center.

Actors Guild members were required to fast between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. throughout the programme.

According to the Actors Guild President, Emeka Rollas, this fasting and prayer season themed “Clearing The Cloud of Darkness Over Nollywood’’ was organised following the recent passing of two prominent actors and the tragic boat mishap that claimed the lives of five crew members, including Jnr. Pope in Asaba.

Consequently, the guild decided to seek divine intervention in fasting and prayers to avert similar occurrences in the future.

Some Nollywood stars have died in the last few months, and this has led to concerns across the country and the industry, thus the birthing of a prayer collaboration with the hashtag #AGNPRAYS.

In addition to this religious intervention, the Guild has launched several interventions for its ailing members and an internal appeal fund to provide urgent medical treatment to sick members and assist the families of deceased actors.
