Amaechi Muonagor

A seasoned Nollywood actor, Amaechi Muonagor, has made a sincere appeal to Nigerians for financial support to undergo a kidney transplant in India. In a viral video on social media, the renowned actor was seen lying on a bed while his colleague actor Kingsley Orji was with him, and he made a heartfelt plea on his behalf.

Orji revealed that Muonagor recently left the teaching hospital on his own account due to financial difficulties, even though he was still in critical need of medical care. The illness has significantly impacted his speech, prompting the urgent need for a kidney transplant surgery.

“It has been a challenging journey. Amaechi has been battling this condition for months now, and the situation has worsened. He urgently needs to undergo a kidney transplant in India.

“Although he recently left the ICU at Nnewi Teaching Hospital due to financial limitations, his condition remains critical. His speech is impaired, and he requires immediate assistance,” Orji expressed looking worried.

This is a troubling recurrence for Muonagor, who sought assistance after disclosing his struggle with paralysis that affected half of his body in November 2023. “I fell ill suddenly while on a movie set, and it escalated to the point where I couldn’t move or walk on my own. Half of my left leg is paralyzed, and my left hand is immobile,” he shared.

“I appeal to kind-hearted individuals to assist me in overcoming this paralysis, which has left me incapacitated.” Muonagor’s health issues, and the death of Mr Ibu earlier this month highlight the problem about Nigerian actors and their health issues. Mr Muonagor is known for his roles in films like 2 Rats, Aki Na Ukwa, Meet The In-Laws, Ukwa, The Last Burial, Police Recruit, Karishika and others.
