One of the names that made the Nollywood clock tick was Sam Loco Efe. His versatility, dexterity, and big grammar in the characters he assumed on-screen has etched his name in our hearts forever.
The late actor was born in Enugu, the son of Arase Efeimwonkiyeke, a warder. His father was of Benin ancestry who worked in Eastern Nigeria and his mother was a petty trader who sold bean cakes. He spent a considerable part of his childhood in the town of Abakaliki in present-day Ebonyi State.
Do you know the late Sam Efe Loco died while sleeping in his hotel room in Owerri, Imo state? The news of his death echoed on August 8, 2011, and was announced by his colleagues on social media after they tried to reach him on his phone severally but to no avail. They rushed to his hotel and broke his door only to find his lifeless body on the bed.
