Nollywood mourns Muna Obiekwe

Nollywood on Sunday lost another vibrant actor, Muna Obiekwe, to the cold hands of death.
Obiekwe’s sudden demise came few months after another Nollywood actor Clems Onyeka was felled by a stray bullet in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
The actor, who has a knack for acting romantic scenes reportedly slumped Sunday evening at his Lagos home, and was rushed to an undisclosed hospital, where he was later confirmed dead.

The cause of his death is yet to be ascertained but there are indications that the actor may have died of a kidney-related disease.
Sources close to the actor said he had been battling an undisclosed ailment, but hid it from his colleagues in the movie industry for a long time.
President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria,AGN,Ibinabo Fiberesima-Egbuka, who spoke to Vanguard   yesterday said, “It’s sad that Muna is no more. We didn’t know he was sick. Maybe, he didn’t want anybody to know about his sickness.”
Also, sources further said the actor’s drinking habit may not be unconnected to his death.
Before his demise, Muna was said to have been planning to organize a charity concert to raise money for his treatment.
Until his death, the Enugu-based actor was one of the controversial actors in the Nigerian movie industry.
It was also alleged that the actor had not gone for his dialysis for over two weeks prior to his demise.
