Despite efforts being made by friends, colleagues and family of the ailing Nollywood actor, Leo Mezie to raise the money he needs for a kidney transplant, the actor has now reportedly (according to The Nation) lost the use of his right leg.
Leo’s condition was brought to light some weeks ago when the actor decided to cry out for help instead of dying in silence.
Hello everyone. Please pass this information to all nollywood members thanks. This is an appeal to all Nollywood practitioners to contribute the sum of N2000 towards saving our brother and colleague, Mr Leo Mezie who is down with Kidney problem.
