Popular Tanzanian actor, Steven Kanumba, dies

Steven 'The Great' Kanumba, one of Tanzania's most popular actors, died in the early hours of this morning. Cause of death is still sketchy. Some say a fatal car accident, others say he was killed by an actress girlfriend after a quarrel. The actor, who is a household name in Tanzania, also featured in a few Nollywood movies. He was only 28 years old. A shocking news for Tanzania and the Africa movie Industry. So sad! May his soul rest in peace...amen.

Character!character!.This Celebs should know that it takes Character to maintain them up there in success.Samuel Wanjiru died for lack of Character,now it is Kanumba.Many have been brought down by lack of Character.Always remember that Talents and giftings will propel you up but it takes character to maintain you up there.

His shocking death, sent me back in the year 2002 when ma brother Tumaini Lusenga introduced him to me at Green Hope Org., in MWANZA, he was looking for actors & actresses claiming about his intention to popularize the movie industry, I promised to join him when back in DSM, unfortunately I couldn't manage until his death, in his latest days I advised him to act on Tanzanian real life situation through his face book A/C. We shall always remember him! R.I.P. KANUMBA!
