Long standing Nigerian actor and cast in the now rested soap opera New Masquerade, James Iroha aka Gringory Akabogu has died at 69.

The actor died on Tuesday, although the circumstances and place of his death are yet to be made available.



His son, Akwari James Iroha, in a post on Facebook confirmed his passing.

The post read “Sept 1942- Feb 2012. Not long ago, a man we have all come to love, a man that has made us laugh, a friend to all but will always be Dad to my little sister Ugonma, my brothers Chiemela, Uche, Kelechi and me passed on.
“Chief James Udensi Akwari Iroha OON has passed on. May his cheerful soul rest in the Lord. Akwari James Iroha ( for the family).”

Gringory had played a prominent role in the New Masquerade which was immensely popular in the 1970s and 1980s and had become a house hold name.

Before his death, Gringory was reported to be suffering from an eye ailment and had cried repeatedly for help.

None came.

Other departed members of the cast are Christy Essien-Igbokwe (Apena) and Claude Ake (Jegede Sokoya).
