You would remember days ago I wrote about the ailment of one of Nigeria’s most renowned veteran Nollywood actors, Martins Njubuigbo. It has been confirmed that he is suffering from liver failure.
Fellow Nollywood actor, Ernest Obi, made the revelation via his Instagram page on Saturday, May 14, 2016, as he helped to solicit for funds on behalf of the actor fondly known as Elder Maya.
Obi revealed that Elder Maya is in need of N1m to help combat the liver disease.
“Help save ELDER MAYA’S LIFE.
“His real name is MARTINS NJUBUIGBO. an Actor, Poet, Singer. A full fledged thespian, who has given over twenty years of his life to film. Elder maya as he is fondly called, or Papa Labista from d film Labista.. Today he is not playing a role in any movie to entertain as usual. He is fighting for his life. His liver. He needs you.

It seems sad and unfortunate that members of the Nigerian Actors Guild have on various occasions, been reported to be suffering from one illness or the other without the association stepping forward to help in one way or another.
