I just confirmed this news from Actors Guild president Ibinabo Fiberesima who was crying uncontrollably on the phone…
AGN President says
”Yes it is true Stella,I just confirmed from his wife,he is dead..” (more crying)
I asked Ibinabo why they didnt raise money for the actors treatment since it was disclosed he didnt have enough money for dialysis..The AGN president said that Muna was a very private person and didnt put his business out there,so not many people knew.
I wanted to ask more but Ibinabo’s crying didnt allow me .
Muna Obiekwe is survived by a wife and Children.
May his soul rest in peace.
This is another black Sunday indeed!
Please ignore the twitter handle debunking that the actor has died.
