Its no longer a breaking news that veteran actor “Muna Obiekwe” has gone beyond to sit in the place of rest.
The ill news which filtered across the internet yesterday, brought about pandemonium but after series of investigation, Nigerians has finally accepted their fate that he has passed on.
The president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ibinabo Fiberesima, confirmed the news in a phone interview with us saying:
“Yes, he is truly dead, i have spoken to his wife… He was a private person, he didn’t tell us he had problems so there was no way we could have helped….please i can’t disclose much information for now.”
It was learnt by The Nation that Muna had been battling renal related ailment but had kept it secret for a long time before informing Ibinabo Fiberesima.
Some unconfirmed reports say that his death was connected with his financial state. “He could not go for his regular dialysis for the past two weeks because he was broke but rejected seeking public assistance due to shame.”
Here are some of his last lovely moments in the nollywood movie scene…
We celebrate you Muna! May your gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Lord.
