News stemming from the entertainment industry revealed that Nollywood actor, Clem Onyeka may have had premonition that he was going to die soon.
Last Tuesday, Onyeka was caught and killed in a crossfire between the police and armed robbers while he was on location for the shooting of a film at Asaba, the Delta State capital.
The Rivers State University of Science and Technology graduate was hardly in the news while he was alive. His death, however, attracted media attention.
Vanguard reports that by some design of fate or poetic twist of ordinary events of life, Clems probably saw his death coming and even made a joke of it. Though it never occurred to the actor what he was talking about could turn out to be what has been written in his own book of life.
Barely two weeks before the fateful day, the actor called Potpourri, an entertainment columnist in the Vanguard, and demanded to have something written about him. Then, he had just won an award and he wanted it published.
He said on phone: “My brother, I enjoy your column so much but nothing has ever been done on me yet, or are you waiting until I am dead before you write about me?”, he queried.
The columnist’s response was, “Clems give me something good to write about you and I will do it.”
The deceased then told the columnist of the award he had just won, and promised to give him material on it, but was not able to fulfill it before his sad demise.
