Nollywood actor Amaechi Muonagor reportedly dead

Must read

Famous Nollywood actor Amaechi Muonagor is reportedly dead.

This was disclosed by popular social media influencer and chairman of Delta State Sports Association, Morris Monye on Sunday via his official X handle.

According to Monye, he was deeply heartbroken by the actor’s death.

“Deeply heartbroken by the news of Amaechi Muonagor’s passing. He was a talented Nollywood actor whose presence on our screens was truly masterful.

“We watched with concern as he battled health issues, offering whatever support we could to help him seek treatment in India.

“This tragic loss highlights the need for better healthcare in our country,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the Actor Guild of Nigeria, AGN, has yet to respond to some inquiries on the development.

Recall that barely a week ago, the 61-year-old Nollywood actor, in a distressing video, begged Nigerians for financial help for his kidney transplant.

On November 27, 2023, the actor’s relative, Tony ‘One Week’ Muonagor, confirmed that he was down with kidney disease.

During his career, Muonagor has appeared in dozens of films, including Aki and Paw Paw, one of his most famous roles, where he played the father of two mischief-making, exuberant teenagers.

The tragic news of Muonagor’s death is coming barely 4 weeks after the death of his colleague, Mr Ibu (John Okafor).

AFRIPOST reports that Mr Ibu died on March 2, 2024 at 62.

The actor passed away at Evercare Hospital in Lagos after a protracted illness that led to the amputation of one of his legs.
