The late actor starred in the 1999 movie alongside Onyeka Onwenu, Charles Okafor, Larry Koldsweat and Nkem Owoh.
 

The movie was also written and produced by the late actor, while it was directed by Ndubuisi Okoh.

"Conspiracy" told the story of a mad woman,  Grace, who gave birth to twins, James and John. The twins who grew up to become doctors were taken away from her and raised by a childless couple.

Growing up, the twins worked hard to find a cure to their mother's madness.

 

The movie is still remembered for its soundtrack "You and I," an original song concept by Onyeka Onwenu, adapted by Stanley Okorie for the movie.

It's also remembered for one of its lines "Ugo, shave me." The line was frequently used by the chief priest, who played a part in Grace's madness.

 

Before his demise, Madubogwu battled with a diabetic wound and had sought financial support for surgery, tests and medications.

His other movie roles include "Mark of the Beast," "Mothers-in-Law," "The Last  Vote" among others.

His last cinematic outing was the 2015 movie "Grave Dust," which was produced by him and starred Ramsey Nouah, Joke Silva and Joseph Benjamin.

May his soul rest in peace.
