Veteran actor James Iroha popularly known as Giringory from the nationwide-watched New Masquerade TV comedy series has died at the age of 70.

The news of his death was disclosed by the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria(AGN), Segun Arinze, who confirmed it from his son. ‘We at AGN commiserate with his family. May God grant him eternal rest’, Arinze’s statement read.

Earlier this year, the veteran performer granted Nigerian tabloid Saturday Sun an interview where he lamented being poor, sick, and blind. According to the interview,Mr. Iroha could hardly afford the bills for medication to keep him in good health.

I am almost begging for food; so I need money to pay my rent, buy my medicines and maybe repair my car’, he said.

‘Giringory’ was a regular on the popular television soap, Masquerade, on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), holding Nigerians spellbound with his acting prowess, especially owing to the comical bent in his performance.

On his facebook page a family member posted:
