Nollywood actor Amaechi Muonagor has reached out to the public for financial assistance as he grapples with the effects of a stroke.
In a video that has since gone viral, the accomplished actor disclosed that the left side of his body has been paralyzed for several months due to the stroke.
Muonagor, visibly weak and lying in a hospital bed, shared that the illness had struck him while he was on a movie set.
Expressing his regret for not making his condition public earlier, he apologized to his fans and called for their support.
He described the ordeal, saying, “I am on set, this thing that is called stroke caught up with me. I was lucky I was not driving. They rushed me to the hospital.
The first hospital was Nnewi, where I spent two months and I was referred to a teaching hospital here in Nnewi.”
Detailing the extent of his condition, he added, “I was to enter my car when I was struck with this problem, and since then, it is getting worse.
Right now, I cannot move, I cannot work on my own. My left leg and left hand are paralyzed. It is a problem to breathe. I am so sorry, I did not make it known to the public early because I did not know it would last this long, but as it is now, I need help.
Anybody who is touched, that is my fan, this is the time. I am calling all my friends both inside Nollywood and outside that is the time they will help me.”
