Controversial Nollywood actor Muna Obiekwe is dead.
According to Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, Muna died on Sunday January 18, 2015 in a hospital in Lagos after a battle with kidney failure.
She reported “He was rushed to the hospital today after he collapsed at his home. Muna has been quietly battling this kidney disease but kept it hush hush from friends and colleagues. So Sad! A colleague said for over two weeks before he died didn’t go for his dialysis.
Muna needed money for his health problems but instead of going public to raise money, he told friends he was planning a stage play to raise money but died before he could do it. Unbelievably sad!
Meanwhile, there’s some twitter handle called @MunaObiekwe that’s denying his death. That is not Muna! Unfortunately the real one is gone. Unbelievable! RIP to a great actor!”
