Yesterday reports were circulating that Nollywood actor Muna Obiekwe passed away from renal failure.

However, shortly after, the Twitter handle @MunaObiekwe claimed these reports were rumours. The account holder also retweeted fans’ responses admonishing the public and media agencies for spreading false reports.

Thankfully, fellow Nollywood actors have cleared the air, most notably Nonso Diobi, confirming the actor’s death and calling out the impostor for confusing the Nigerian public.

    What do people gain from all this deceit? Why would you make up a fake account just to deceive people? Mehn we need to create jobs cause there are obviously too many idle hands out there that have become the devil’s playground.

    This is just too painful… one of the talents in Nollywood. I’m sure as a private person he just couldn’t send out an SOS. I can’t blame him as most of his colleagues flaunt money like they’re well paid, while in reality they’re struggling. RIP Muna, and may God grant your family the strength to bear this horrible loss. I’m just sad

    Heard about it this morning and it is really sad. Muna was such a great actor!. There was a time that he was the always in all movies as the lead role….so so sad!
    May God keep his loved ones and comfort them. Our prayers are with his family.

    That Nonso Diobi handle on Instagram is an imposter. The actor Nonso Diobi doesn’t have any social media accounts. Nonsodiobiworld has been scamming people for money on instagram. check it out

    All the visits to Aso Rock…AGN president are you trying to say you didn’t even hear as a rumour that muna was sick to come to his aid no matter how private he wanted his life to be. You guys in the industry should practice love not hate and neglect

    • Beeeee

      January 19, 2015 at 11:01 am

      I don’t think that is a fair statement. Now you want to blame AGN President for his death??? Especially when just a few months a ago, she assisted a veteran actor with his medical bills? Someone just died and the first place your mind goes to is AGN? No condolence, nothing. SMH

    The incidence of Kidney disease is very high, in Nollywood going by what we see in the news.
    Is it job related or a coincidence ?
    This calls for a research.
    RIP Muna.

    R.I.P Muna. Its rather very sad but what I don’t understand is the fact that some of these actors/actresses flaunt wealth like no man business at the same time you hear of some dying because of lack of fund for treatment. I just don’t get it.

    • concerned

      January 20, 2015 at 11:08 am

      Exactly! I’ve been wondering why people he started out in the industry before have $24,000 to waste in Dubai and he suffered just like that. But maybe its their side hustles, IDK. This is so sad. I feel so sorry for his young family

      Yep. He was such a private guy and he stayed out of the limelight unless he had a movie out. That’s why many people didn’t even known when he got married and when he got sick. I wish his family the very best :/

    It was really sad such a gifted actor.RIP muna. BN this nonso diobi’s Twitter acct and the fake muna Twitter is run by the same person he really was messing with people’s hearts I just saw uche jombo tweets on how she found out she’s was following both fake and real nonso without knowing so if he can fool someone that had to talk to nonso in person before finding out the truth imagine the innocent fans he has been scamming for years. This post is giving this imposter fame

  44. KAI

    January 20, 2015 at 11:33 am

    Dear Muna,

    I know you cannot see this but I know the universe will pass my message on to you. Rest in Peace dearie. Talented, kind, cool, brilliant and remarkable are just some of the words that describes the kind of person you are. Go in peace and please rest in the bosom of our Lord. Amen.

    NOTE
    The people reporting that he’s broke should please show us his bank account to prove their claims… Wait, I bet they dont have it! Do they know how long he battled this ailment? Or how much he spent on treatments prior to his passing? The man just died untimely yet many news outlets are churning out junk instead of getting verified story and facts. Why can’t they report his departure professionally and save the frivolities for a later date? Mtchewww. And please, all these talk about him being broke is cringe worthy. First of all, being well-to-do and being rich or wealthy is not the same. Secondly, nobody knows his financial status, so why report half baked or unverified stories? And please, what does his financial status have to do with this? Report his death professionally first!

    Nigeria’s healthcare system is MEDIOCRE & ridiculously EXPENSIVE (like everything else), so if you don’t have Kalu, Dangote, etc money, you won’t get the best care possible. In addition to that, hospitals practically bill a lot of patients to death, so it’s time for us as a nation to do something about advancing ourselves academically, economically and in every other aspect. People practically die from everything in our country even after spending their life savings and money they went throught great lengths to obtain. *sigh*

      Abeg chop knuckle for dishing out the most sensible comment regarding his death. I tire for our people and all these he was broke, his colleagues no help him and what not as if dey sabi the full gist. Your comment about hospitals billing people to death resonates with me cuz I sabi few classmates who passed years ago because of small change… even as small as N5,000. Even the ones way get some kind of money no get better treatment either. The family of one of my classmates spent well over 10 million naira on his treatment but the dude died because the hospital no do the transfusion in a timely and professional manner. Their N10million was gone and so was their precious child even after forking over that hefty amount. Imagine paying N300K out of pocket PER treatment! Abeg who get that kind of money? Let alone spending that much over and over again and to make matters worse, you still don’t get adequate results in the end. Chai, his death don pain me finish. I hope his family will get through this difficult time. Adieu Muna… you were indeed a fine gentleman! Make una remember his family when you are reporting his deaths so una no go worse their sorrow.

On birthdays, HBD, HBD LLNP will scatter someone’s page (super annoying) and when someone dies, the same abbreviated saga continues, kilode? Please be reasonable!

    O MUNA TODAY I AM HEARTBROKEN AT THE NEWS OF YOUR SUDDEN PARTING, AND WHEN THE NEWS BROKE, ALL I COULD SAY WAS WHY?
    I KNOW WE SHOULD NOT QUESTION GOD, AND I AM NOT, BUT I DO QUESTION MYSELF WHY DID I NOT KEEP IN TOUCH LIKE I HAD PROMISED TO DO?
    MAYBE IF I HAD KEPT IN TOUCH MORE OFTEN I WOULD HAVE FELT AND HEARD YOUR SILENT CRY FOR PAIN, THAT I SENSED LIED BENEATH THOSE AMAZING EYES THAT READ INTO SO MANY SOULS, WHILE KEEPING YOUR OWN SHIELDED FROM THE WORLD. THAT SMILE AND EYES THAT HELD SO MANY SECRETS I WILL MISS SO DEEPLY. BRO REMEMBER WHEN WE FIRST CHATTED AND I WAS SO BLOWN AWAY BY YOUR TALENT AFTER WATCHING YOU IN THE MOVIE “HE LIVES IN ME” IN DECEMBER 2005? WE LAUGHED THEN AND THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP. AND AS I WATCH THE MOVIE NOW, WAS THERE A MESSAGE EVEN WAY BACK THEN I WONDER?
    YOU SIMPLY HAD NO IDEA WHAT AN INCREDIBLE TALENT YOU POSSESSED AND HOW YOU CAME ACROSS ON SCREEN. IT WAS THAT QUALITY THAT I FELL TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH, AND YOU WERE SO INCREDIBLY SUPPORTIVE ALBEIT A BIT SHY. WHY DID I THINK WE WOULD HAVE THE TIME TO PLAY “CATCH-UP”, WHY DID I NOT SENSE AS BEFORE THE PAIN YOU WERE IN, I USUALLY COULD AND FOR THAT MUNA I AM SO DEEPLY SORRY. YOU ELUDED THAT THERE WAS CHALLENGES AND I LISTENED AND BELIEVED THAT YOU WERE GOING TO WIN THIS BATTLE, YOU MY FRIEND HAD THE ABILITY TO RISE ABOVE EVERY OBSTACLE YOU ENCOUNTERED, AND NEVER COMPLAINED.
    MY HEART-FELT CONDOLENCES TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING WIFE AND CHILDREN, YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES AND TO THE NOLLYWOOD INDUSTRY, STAY STRONG, MUNA CARED DEEPLY ABOUT ALL OF YOU, AND REMEMBER THE MAN, THE AMAZING AND TALENTED ARTISTE.
    YOU WALKED THROUGH LIFE, LOVING OTHERS, BUT RARELY ALLOWING OTHERS TO SEE THE REAL YOU. AND ABOVE ALL BRO, I AM HUMBLED AND DEEPLY GRATEFUL FOR SHARING ME MUNA. REST WITH THE LORD MUNA OBIEKWE
