He was a figure to me—Segun Arinze

It is so bad. Uncle Justus Esiri was a figure and a great motivator to us. He left a legacy that need to be sustained. Justus Esiri contributed his quota to the growth of the industry. It is a very bad news, we will miss him.

Justus Esiri mentored me—Joke Silver

What do you want me to say about the death of uncle Justus Esiri? I am really confused and devastated.   I started career with him. It is so depressing. He lived a fulfilled life, he loved his job and he was also a gentleman. We thank God that he achieved what he supposed to have achieved in life. At least, he has  a son who is a superstar. I acted with him in the early 80’s though I cannot remember the title of the movie now. It is all about how well he has lived.

Our veterans are not catered for–Foluke Daramola

I am feeling very sad about what is happening to us. I have been on set with Justus Esiri in movies like “Everyday People” where he was my father. I am not happy the way our veteran actors are dying. It is a great lost to the movie industry. I strongly believe that our veteran actors are not catered for properly. I want to create an avenue, in collaboration with some of my colleagues where we can run a programme that will be beneficial to our surviving veteran actors.

A legend has  left us – Nigga Raw

I don’t know what to say because I just saw it this morning on my phone and I asked what happened , they told me Justus Esiri is dead .So it really pained me because we have lost another great Nollywood veteran actor and what I have to tell the family is that they should take heart also may his soul rest in peace.
