    The death and transient of this immense energetic, and committed Comedian Actor ‘’SAM LOCO EFE’’ is a shocking news to all Nigerian Movie Loving Individuals especially we in Sierra Leone. When i heard the news, my mind reflects to his Co-Actor Nkem Owo. Whenever they pairs together in a movie, that movie eventually get an excellent outcome.

    We considered his death, and we love him but the Lord adored him than anybody. May his Soul rest in Perfect Peace.
