Muna Obiekwe Married, Wife Abroad With Kids “Dead Nigerian Actor A Heavy Drinker & Smoker” – Godmother Vera Kanu Speaks

Jan 19, 2015 – Muna Obiekwe Married, Wife Abroad With Children (Twins)” Nollywood Actor Who Died Yesterday Drinks Heavily & Smokes A Lot” – Godmother Vera Kanu Speaks

The best kept secret of Nollywood actor Muna Obiekwe who passed away secretly at a specialist hospital in Festac Lagos yesterday, Sunday January 18th, 2015 has been exposed.

This was made known by his godmother and fellow actress Vera Kanu (pictured on the left above).

In an exclusive chat with icampus, Vera Kanu said Muna Obiekwe in his lifetime was a chain smoker and an alcoholic. She said his addiction contributed to his kidney damage.

Vera said Muna lost his parents a while ago in a fatal car accident and since then he has been using alcohol and smoke to console himself.

In the process, Muna reportedly consulted a doctor who suggested that he should do at least 20 kidney dialyses to re-energize his kidney.

He was then told to avoid alcohol.. Vera said that the actor didn’t quit drinking until the time of his death.

Vera continued:
“I was with him to the last hour. He was to do up to 20 dialyses; the doctor said if the dialysis improved his condition, the worse would certainly be over. He will be okay only if he stays away from alcohol but you know our artiste,” she concluded.“the dialysis was expensive for Muna.

He was doing two in a week sometimes. And he would need blood injection on each occasion. Each appointment was costing him between N250, 000 to N300, 000; money he did not really have to spend. His health was eating deep into his purse yet Muna refused to go cap in hand begging for alms. He was a private guy who didn’t want the press or his colleagues to feast on his pain. 

“He was managing it on his own. As a matter of fact, he has been managing it for a while until Ejiro Okurame and I came on board to help. We were combining resources to help him but there was very little we could do to save him. We had to enlist the help of Patience Ozokwor and Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) at a point. They rendered the help they could until he died.

Vera Kanu says Muna Obiekwe Lived A Very Private Life

“The guy was private. He kept to himself a lot and most importantly, kept his private life private; for instance, many people did not even know he was married with two children. Such was his life. He didn’t want press or his colleagues to start prying. He was particularly afraid of the press, hence his shutting his colleagues out of his pain. He knew if some Nollywood people got to know about it, the press would also get to know. He refused to beg to save Nollywood’s image, he in-turn, lost himself.”

“Everybody in the industry knows Muna drinks a lot; even when he’s shooting in the North, he has a way of finding alcohol. He fell into it, after he lost his parents in a ghastly motor accident. ‘As a matter of fact, he was supposed to be in that car with them but by stroke of luck, he wasn’t and was spared. Afterwards, Muna took solace in liquor but that never affected his job. He was just like Sam Loco; he could drink the whole sea but when he hears the director shout ‘action,’ he gets into character. Muna was a method character despite his flaws’’

So where was Ibinabo Fiberesima when Muna needed money for dialysis?

If Patience Ozokwor was involved, she must have talked about it to Ibinabo, perhaps Muna is not her type of person.

Oh by the way, colleagues and fans have started raining insults on Ibinabo Fiberesima for her partial attitude towards Nollywood celebrities

Don’t mind that foolish ibinabo, he never treat everyone equally, he sees some of us as her enemy and never bother about our well being” – a Nollywood actress told NaijaGists.com authoritatively in a chat earlier today

May his soul rest in peace.

    Truly saddened by Muna’s untimely death..he was one of my top and seasoned actors.However difficult…we should learn from this and put our pride down when faced with situations beyond our capabilities.Let us also take it upon ourselves to probe and find out about our family,friends and colleagues no matter how private they are in Kenya we call it ‘Utiaji'(Sheng)…Rest in Peace Muna.

    this isn’t a “god mother”! you don’t tear a man apart after his demise! you don’t go ranting about his excesses once he’s dead! you protect you “god children”! I am so saddened by this news. If he didn’t want to go “begging for alms”, it shows he’s a man. You will be greatly missed Muna, though some of your films were a bit erratic for “Nigerian tv viewing”, you certainly revolutionised the system. Rest in peace handsome. xxx

    According to the Bible,” it is appointed unto man once to die and after this, the judgement” How or where somebody rests after dead is dependent on the persons relationship ship with God while he/she was alive in this world. God will decide who rests in peace. My prayer is for God to grant those Muna left behind the fortitude to bear the loss.
