Junior Pope: Sylvester Madu Begins 7-Day Fasting and Prayer Against Deaths in Nollywood

Sylvester Madu, a Nigerian actor, has declared a seven-day fast to pray against fatalities in Nollywood.

Madu disclosed his plan on Instagram on Sunday, a few days after the death of his colleague Junior Pope.

Pope and four others died in a boat accident on the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state, last Wednesday.

Madu announced on Tuesday that he has started a “spiritual exercise” and would hold prayer meetings across all social media platforms.

The actor encouraged his colleagues to pray so that “evil does not prevail over good men.”

“Join me as I propose a 7 days of Prayer and fasting in and for Nollywood and the Practioners. 15th April to 21st April. Evil prevail when good men do nothing, evil prevail also when we dont pray as Christians,” he captioned the post.

“So kindly join me daily online on Kingschat or Zoom as we pray and fast for ourselves and our colleagues in Nollywood.

“Link to join will be sent on my WhatsApp status and all Nollywood platforms and my social media platforms too You can break your fast from 2 pm, 4 pm or 6 pm. And at 2 pm to 2.15 pm, 4 pm to 4.15 pm, 6 pm to 6.15 pm we will pray for 15 minutes at each of these times daily for 7 days.

“I will be sending prayer points daily and will also be live daily on TikTok, Facebook and Instagram at each of these 15 minutes to lead us in these prayer times.”

Madu also reminisced on memories he shared with the late actor.

“This life that we live in is not balanced. It is only God that can balance it for you if you know him. He will help to direct your account path every single day so that your mistakes are minimised,” he added.

“Seeing that video or hearing what has happened to my colleague, I had to ruminate on so many things. I went back and brought my old phone and I was watching it.”
