Veteran Nollywood Actor, Amaechi Muonagor Dies At 62


Veteran Nollywood actor, Amaechi Muonagor has died at the age of 62.

A relative to the late actor told the BBC.

According to the relative, the actor died on Sunday after suffering from kidney failure and was on dialysis, local media reported.

His death comes just a few days after he appealed for help to raise funds for a kidney transplant in India.

During his career, Muonagor appeared in dozens of films, including Aki and Paw Paw, one of his most famous roles where he played the father of two mischief-making, over-exuberant teenagers.

He was nominated for the 2017 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards for Best Actor.

His death comes just a few weeks after Nigeria lost another Nollywood star John Okafor, better known as Mr Ibu, who also needed medical help.
