“He is battling kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke” -Amaechi Muonagor’s cousin, Tony Oneweek cries out for help


Amaechi Muonagor, an actor who also happens to be Tony Oneweek’s cousin, is fighting for his life and has appealed to Nigerians for support.

A few weeks ago, GISTLOVER revealed that Amaechi is presently suffering from paralysis due to a stroke.

The legendary actor was seen on the bed in a heartbreaking video, explaining how his illness began and pleading with fans and colleagues to help.

He apologized to the public and asked for help, explaining why he had kept his health issue private.

The actor is currently fighting kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke, according to his cousin, who has updated the public on his condition and asked for help.

He said that in order to treat the paralysis caused by the stroke, Amaechi has been going to physiotherapy and dialysis every week.

Posting a picture of himself and the actor on the actor’s sick bed, he continued, saying that up until his recent stroke, which forced them to ask for assistance, he had been paying the hospital bills on his own.

“This picture was taken two weeks ago when I visited my cousin Amaechi Monagor (Aguiyi) at the Nnewi Teaching Hospital. I initially had wanted to quietly assist the much I could, but later decided to make this post to clarify some things so that my friends, fans, and Amaechi’s fans, and indeed the online community can be better informed.

Amaechi is currently down with kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke. He had been managing his diabetes over the years and living his life. He is presently undergoing weekly dialysis and other treatments at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi. His family had been shouldering the costs for years until the recent stroke made his case more serious and indeed more expensive to battle alone, hence the publicity.

Within the limits of my own capabilities, I have done and am still doing my best to assist the much I can, even reaching out to well-meaning individuals who are donating to this cause. Contrary to most online publications, Amaechi is my first cousin. His father and my father are of the same father. We have had a wonderful relationship as members of the same industry and I am proud of him as a “brother”.

Amaechi is so loved worldwide and his fans, friends and ndi Obosi have been wonderful so far. Many groups have been donating money for his hospital bills. As of today, there’s some improvement. His blood sugar is under control but he is still on admission, weekly dialysis, physiotherapy, and other treatments. His full treatments and recovery require sustained funding or donations. No amount is too small. Pls, keep Amaechi and his family in your prayers. May God grant him full healing.

Pls kindly donate to Amaechi Monagor’s First Bank plc account number 3036808437. God bless you now and always. Tony Oneweek Muonagor.”(sic)
