The shock of the sudden passage yesterday of ace filmmaker Chico John Meziakpono Ejiro is still reverberating. After it was finally confirmed that he had truly died, many are now coming to terms with the fact that he is actually gone forever. The outpouring of grief and other emotions since yesterday have been unprecedented.
Chico the general was a very much loved man in his lifetime and he contributed immensely towards what is now referred to as Nollywood, which is the top 3 fastest growing film industry in the whole world.
His gorgeous wife of nearly 3 decades, the blessed and the quite loyal and irrepressible Joy Chico Ejiro whose grief is palpable, whilst still mourning the shocking demise of her beloved other half and father of her 4 kids has come out briefly today Saturday December 26, 2020 known to the world as Boxing Day, to respond to the utter shock of losing her husband to death!
*_This is a rude shock!!!!!!!! we had a lot of plans for Christmas, we spoke a lot about how the day will go, we were recounting how GOD has been good to us this year and how grateful we are to be alive, I never knew it was going to be my last midnight gist with you. You died in my hands Chico, you left me so confused and devastated.
In all, I thank GOD for giving me the opportunity to spend the last 26yrs with you, you were a selfless man who was a wonderful husband and a great father.
I’m consoled by the beautiful life you lived and the impact you made in the movie industry and all that crossed your path. You will forever be in our hearts. Till we meet again my Baby Boy, I will have plenty gist for you my best friend*_
Joy wasn’t just Chico’s wife. They were each others best friend and gossip partners and more. She was also the Managing Director/CEO of their company GRANDTOUCH Pictures, whilst doubling as the owner of her own fashion label Real Colours Ventures.
May Chico’s soul find rest!
