by Duchess Magazine

Pat Nebo, the multiple award winner whose work includes some of the best Nollywood productions, passed away on September 14 from a long illness that had rendered him bedridden, according to Shaibu Husseini a movie critic and member of the African Movie Academy Awards jury.

He wrote, “I have been reliably informed that foremost Nigerian Production Designer Pat Nebo is DEAD. HE has been bedridden for a while now. Journey Well Master of the Craft of production design.”

Pat Nebo was a production designer as well as an art director for films like “Phone Swap,” and “Half of a Yellow Sun.”

“Ti Oluwa Ni Ile,” a home movie in which Pat Nebo served as the production designer, served as the launchpad for his professional career in 1993. He provided two “Ti Oluwa Ni Ile” sequels with his artistic abilities in the same year. In the 2009 movie “The Figurine,” he made his big-screen debut as the “Marriage Registrar,” marking his entry into mainstream filmmaking. He did not, however, confine himself to acting. He remained dedicated to his work as a production designer in a number of films, including “Araromire,” “Arugba,” “Alero’s Symphony,” and “Being Mrs. Elliot,” “October 1, “76 ” by Izu Ojukwu for which he received the 2017 African Movie Academy Award, The Milkmaid, which was nominated for an Oscar, and many others.

He is especially well-known for his near-perfect ability to produce vintage setups and retros.
