Naija News recalls that popular filmmaker Edgard Leroy recently died in a car crash along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway barely a month after winning his first Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award.
The Cameroonian-born filmmaker was on his way to Ibadan, Oyo State, for a movie shoot when the unfortunate incident happened.
His friend and partner, David Akande, said he was involved in the auto crash on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at the Shagamu end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The rising filmmaker emerged winner of the award for the Best Indigenous Movie (Yoruba) for his first feature film, Alaise, on May 14, 2022, at the seventh AMVCAs.
