Contrary to rumors that went viral about late actor Muna Obiekwe’s state of health and what actually led to his death, the real truth has been revealed. In an interview during Muna’s burial on the 3rd of February at his hometown, here’s what Muna’s step sister, Chinwe Obiekwe, said about her brother’s sudden death:
Muna was sick from October last year, 2014. It wasn’t a normal kidney failure, rather a kidney failure that was prompted by high blood pressure and caused his two kidneys to suddenly fail. A high BP that was due to stress from his very busy schedule, always been
on set, and not having enough time to take his drugs properly. His family was taken unawares as he had been going for dialysis, his uncles abroad had even planned to come back to Nigeria so they can give him a transplant before Muna died that fateful Sunday.
When asked why Muna didn’t seek public help or speak out publicly about his ill health, Chinwe said Muna is a private person. And again, his family was capable and very ready to take care of him. So there was practically no need for the announcement.
A pissed off Chinwe later questioned the people who have been saying they would have helped if only Muna had cried out. She said: ”What was their contribution during the burial? I will say this – ”Fuck them”!”
