Last year, the Ekiti State-born actor called on Nigerians to help him financially in order to take care of his health.

The ailing actor once told Sunday Scoop, “Nigerians should help me. Everything needed for me to be in a healthy state requires money.

“I am getting better with the support of people, but I have not fully recovered. That is why I am pleading with Nigerians across all walks of life who I have impacted in one way or the other to help me”.

He noted that though he had not gotten enough help, he would not cast aspersions on associations in the industry. He said: “Everyone has different things they are battling with. I don’t want it to seem like I am insulting members of our association of actors.

“Though I did not get the kind of support I would have wanted, some individuals called me to greet me once in a while. I don’t blame them because they are going through different things”.
