A popular Nollywood actor and filmmaker, Edgard Leroy, has passed in an autocrash barely a month after winning his first Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award.

The Cameroonian-born filmmaker died in a car crash on his way to Ibadan, Oyo State, for a movie shoot, Stonix News gathered.

Leroy’s partner and friend, David Akande, said Leroy was involved in the auto crash on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at Sagamu end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The fast-rising filmmaker won the award for the Best Indigenous movie (Yoruba) for his first feature film, Alaise, on May 14, 2022 at the seventh AMVCAs.

Born Edgard Le Roy Nouke Ngedemon on July 13, 1995 in Cameroon, the filmmaker died a few weeks before his 27th birthday.

He’s the first Cameroonian and filmmaker to win the AMVCAs and for his first feature film in a totally foreign language.
