ENTERTAINMENT NEWS: Veteran Nollywood Actor, Bruno Iwuoha Goes Blind, Cries For Help

Another Nollywood actor needs help urgently to restore his sight. Veteran actor Bruno Iwuoha was a guest on a radio station in Abuja recently where he opened up on his current battle with a life threatening disease. The talented actor talked about his battle with diabetes and how he has been battling Glaucoma for years without money for corrective surgery. Mr Iwuoha who said diabetes has claimed his sight told the host of Brekete Family Program on 104.5FM in Abuja that he never knew he had diabetes until a violent armed robbery attack that landed him in hospital. A series of test carried out on him revealed that he has diabetes and since then he has been managing it until the condition affected his sight. 

Hear him:

“I’ve gone to so many places; within the country, outside the country for treatment, until finally…finally, the thing [diabetes] claimed one of my sight. As I look at you now, I’m using only one sight. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one [eye]. So, naim make, apart from places…the people who call me atimes, both the little cash they can give me…drugs and all that…but I discovered that this thing [the illness] is a lifetime something.

And it has robbed me of the job [acting]. And now, if I get a script, it will be hard for me to read it very well. And if I read it, if I strain my eyes for so long, it would look as if someone would lead me around the house or anywhere I want to go because it will affect the only one [eye]. So that’s my problem.”

The actor said he needs the help of kind-hearted Nigerians because he has been referred to a US-based hospital where he is required to have N3.5million.

So far he has about N200,000.

He said he got to know that Jonathan gave AGN money but Ibinabo Fiberesima never assisted him with any money when he reached out to her.

Hmmm.......and some small small boys n girls in the entertainment industry will blow N5m on boozs n hair do. Non of the young artist with all the money they get from endorsement by Telco could think of setting up a foundation to help n support old veteran artist who lay the foundation upon which they stand today.

Is this 3.500m naira too much for Nigerians to bring out and help the dying man, before blaming him for not investing his money for raining days? His life should be saved first before querying him.

Ibeh, how much do u think they pay them? He has his family to take care of!if this man was ur father will u have post this rubbish?

@ Onyekachi Ibeh, ur brash attitude is uncalled for. How much do u think these old veterans were paid during their time? Can u compare their living expenses vis-a-vis their meagre income to the young n reckless artist of today? Most of these old veterans had kids they train in universities, they have relations meet their needs. Most of these relations have over bloated image of these artists for the mere fact they see their own on tv, hence they place unnecessary demand. Time n chances is what happened and it can happen to another. Dr Sid made more money in his short time as an entertainer than his daddy(late Justice Esiri). Do u know what? Dr Sid's education and adventure into the entertainment industry was as result of his daddy's job n income. Show some sympathy, the kind of ailment most of these old folks suffer is not the type their meagre savings can handle or sustain the treatment. If u had made ur statement to one of these young lad throwing money around on jewellery, booze and women , i won't mind. Maybe we should direct this 'brashness' to the association in charge of the industry to better organise themselves or to the Telcom to at least find a way to using the old hands of the industry as their brand ambassadors.
