Ngozi Ezeonu, a veteran Nollywood actress, has refuted rumours that she died.

The actress declared herself to be “alive and healthy” in a video posted to her Instagram page.

She was reacting to stories on social media that suggested she had passed away.

She claims that the candle-themed post she made earlier was a memorial to a friend she recently lost.

“I lost a very close friend of mine, I posted a candle, a half-burnt candle and they now put my picture on that candle and everybody is saying that I died.

“It is wrong. I am alive and healthy, please.

“In journalism, what you do when in doubt is you leave out. If you cannot get across to the person to at least confirm the story, you don’t post.

“Don’t do that, please. Don’t try it again. This is a new year, why would anybody want to hurt each other just because they want people to follow them?”

“The calls I have been receiving have been very worrisome. I don’t know why anybody should take my post.” She added
