Seasoned Nollywood actor Amaechi Muonagor has appealed to Nigerians to provide financial support to undergo kidney transplant in India.

The renowned actor was seen lying on a bed and pleading for assistance in a video that went viral on social media.

Kingsley Orji, his Nollywood colleague seated beside him, made a plea on his behalf.

Amaechi Muonagor left the hospital a few days ago because of financial difficulties, according to Orji.

He stated that the illness had affected his speech and urged fans and well-wishers to support him for a transplant surgery.

“It is been challenging. He has been in this state for several months now. He wants to go for a kidney transplant. What we want is for you to help us for him to travel to India,” Orji said.

“He just came back from the ICU in Nnewi teaching hospital a couple of days ago. He was responding to treatment but not very well.

“We decided to bring him home because there was no money but it is not advisable. He barely talks well. Please, he needs your help.”

In 2023, Amaechi Muonagor was diagnosed with paralysis that had affected half of his first leg.

His words: “I’m sick, this thing that is called stroke caught up with me, and from there they rushed me to the hospital. The first hospital they rushed me to was in Nnewi, where I spent some two months and I was referred to Teaching Hospital Nnewi and here I am.

“I was on a movie set with Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie, and Ebele Okaro. I was about to enter my car when I was struck with this problem and since then it has been getting worse. Right now, I can’t move, I can’t walk on my own. Half of my left leg is paralyzed, my left hand is not movable, so it is a problem for me.

“I’m calling on well spirited individuals to come to my assistance, to see how they can help me. It is paralysis, half of my body.”
