Mike Ezuoronye: So sad…Muna whyyyyyyyyyy ….Ohhh Whyyyyyyyy..R.I.P bro…Nollywood looses another …Whyyyyy
Stella Damasus: Just confirmed it from some close friends and relatives that he is really dead. The message from twitter that he was still alive was from a fake account. So this is my pain, how do you know what to believe and what not to believe? Where do we draw the line? Over nine thousand people on twitter have believed that he is still alive because of the fake twitter account. REST IN PEACE BRO! I was really hoping that it was a rumor. God rest your soul. This is too painful. Whoever put that message out not the fake twitter account should be careful. Don’t play games with people’s lives like that.
Chika Ike: RIP To My Dear colleague. Muna Obiekwe. You will live in our hearts forever.
Uche Jombo: “It’s not the length of life but the depth of life” RIP muna! Update:it’s sad that someone will try to make this sad day more difficult by tweeting through a fake account. Like you all I wish it was a lie but sadly it’s not.please just pay your respects and stop with the tagging about this fake account user. I refuse to give him 1min.

Ify Okeke: I truly hate to be a harbinger of bad news but I want to confirm that MUNA OBIEKWE IS DEAD! And am so angry! Yes not just because we lost another great talent but because in this industry we are not our brothers kepper. Yes,Muna mighty have wanted or lived a private life but people knew he was sick,people knew his health condition and yet what did they do,some tried but if they had cried out to the world MUNA might have gotten help. We are just colleagues NO REAL FRIENDS! Rest In Peace MUNA.
