Late Muna Obiekwe’s half sister, Chinwe Obiekwe, has opened up on her brother’s illness and sudden death. She also explained why he didn’t ask for help. She revealed this in a new interview with Inside Nollywood. Here’s what she said:
Muna was sick from last year October.It wasn’t a normal Kidney failure.It was a high BP that prompted the failure .So he did not give us time to do the kidney transplant because his two kidneys failed.Assuming it was a normal kidney failure ,it was supposed to be one kidney.My uncles were planning to come back to Nigeria and operate on him/do the transplant..Then he died on Sunday
Through out the one year he was sick, we were going for the dialysis .My uncles in Lagos were taking him for the dialysis .
On the cause of his High Blood Pressure. She said:
Anybody can have high BP because of stress.It wasn’t family problems.He was taking his medcines but because he was always on set, he didn’t have much time to take his medicine properly.
On why he didn’t ask for help. She said..
Anybody can say anything.Muna is a private person.You people should be surprised that he didn’t bring out what was wrong with him on the internet ia because, he was a man ..My family was ready to operate on him.It’s not that he couldn’t ask for help, but attimes, there are problems that come to you ,you know it can be sorted by your family .That Muna didn’t tell you people he was sick was because he was a private person who didn’t talk about his private life
To those who say he did not open up..I’m going to use this term …F-k them..Now that he is dead..Did those people come to contribute to his burial? So this is the reason he saw everything and refused to ask for help.
