News reaching us from the President of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Segun Arinze today tells us that the current health condition of Nigerian actor Enebeli Elebuwa is now ‘stable’ following a stroke he suffered just last week.
‘He’s stable. We are working on every possible thing to get him back on his feet’, Arinze told us.
Reports say after the stroke, Elebuwa was admitted to the St. Luke’s Hospital, Sabo, Yaba, Lagos.
According to different sources, the long serving Nollywood actor could barely talk nor lift his body after the stroke occurred.
Elebuwa’s health condition had begun to deteriorate about a year ago, and he reportedly called on the Actors Guild of Nigeria to come to his rescue.
‘He’s now stable and hoping to recover properly‘ a close source tells us.
Meanwhile, Arinze has reached out to his colleagues in Nollywood, pleading with them to help out in supporting Elebuwa in this ‘tough time’.
‘I would like to use this opportunity to reach out to the superstar acts in the movie industry, help your colleague please’, Arinze pleaded.
Arinze also dropped a word of advice for his colleagues. ‘This is a wake-up call for all actors. I’m personally tired of the deaths. We need to make full check-ups at the hospital’.
Elebuwa has acted in over 125 movies including ‘Domitila’ (1996) and ‘Oracle’ (1998) in his 30-year acting career. His first feature in a Soap Opera was ‘Mirror in the Sun’ but he was launched into national fame when he played the character ‘Andrew’ in an ‘80s TV jingle.
