Martial Arts Icon, Natty Bruce

Renowned lecturer and journalist Shaibu Husseini shared this sad news on his Facebook page on Monday, 6th November 2023.

Husseini, who has frequently discussed why Nigerian films struggle to win awards, pointed out Bruce’s significant contribution to merging martial arts with various films during his lifetime.

According to Husseini, Natty Bruce, had an unfulfilled ambition of creating a full-length combat movie that would captivate both Nigerian and international audiences.

Bruce has produced several action-filled films like ‘The ‘President Must Not Die’, ‘Guardian Angel’ and ‘Best of the Game’.
