Nollywood veteran, Kanayo O Kanayo has placed a curse on the person spreading rumours of his death.

The movie star made this known in a post on his Instagram page @Kanayo.O.kanayo, where he disclosed that:

I don’t know what people gain by carrying rumors, printing their obituaries. I don’t know what will make somebody wake up in the morning and start tagging somebody,” he said.

I do not know…Do most people think Nollywood people, entertainers do not have family members. What kind of life do you think we live? Somebody wakes up, compiles 3, 4, 5 photos, and puts RIP.” You will not live past the next 7 days. You’ve got the wrong guy.”
