Nollywood Actor Prince Emeka Ani Seeks Financial Help After Surgery

Nollywood Actor Prince Emeka Ani Seeks Financial Help After

Nollywood actor, Prince Emeka Ani has made an open appeal to Nigerians to help him financially.

In a video circulating on social media, the thespian narrated how a surgery carried out on him went wrong.

“Since December 7, I have been in this hospital for major surgery and after the surgery, it expanded to a very dangerous one. I thank God I’m getting better now. I’m soliciting from my people,” he said.

While expressing gratitude to members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) who have visited him in the hospital, Ani revealed his hospital bill is too much for him to bear, hence his appeal to meaningful Nigerians.

“The bill is too much, I cannot carry it alone. Your contributions will go a long way because I’m still taking medication from the hospital,” he further stated.

Meanwhile, a statement from AGN stated that; “As is his usual style of carrying members of the guild along in all he does, the president has been making a passionate appeal to members and Nollywood at large, to lend support to their colleagues through the Trust Fund which is chaired by a veteran actress, Joke Silva.

“The guild has become overwhelmed with the urgent need to provide assistance to sick members as well as participate in the funeral activities of the deceased and provide for the upkeep of the immediate families.

“It is with great sadness to note that three corpses of AGN members are currently in the morgue waiting for final burial rites. They include Jim Lawson Maduike, Dan Nkoloagu and Ernest Asuzu (who passed on recently), while some members are equally down with life-threatening ailments.

“The President sees this as a burden all actors have to bear, and to be our brother’s keeper in times of need.”
