I heard this yesterday night and I was shocked to my bones. Muna Obiekwe is dead. He died on Sunday at about 4:15pm. A 36-year-old Nigerian actor who was said to have been battling with kidney disease for a while now. The death of Muna made me reflect on life again and how short it is. Muna is not one of my favorite Nollywood actors (though he was good at what he did) because of the roles he played and the type of movies he acted in but I look at his death from the perspective of a young man who must have had so many dreams not accomplished. Life cut short at such an early age. Brings me back to my blog Tag Line—-Live your dreams. Life is short…..very short indeed. Choose to be happy and live a quality life……we are nothing but pencils in the hands of the Creator…. Here is what I got from Linda Ikeji this morning…..
“Yes, it’s true! Actor Muna Obiekwe has died. He died this afternoon around 4:15pm in a hospital in Lagos after a battle with kidney failure. 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!”
SO SAD!!!! REST IN PEACE MUNA OBIEKWE!!!!
