Nollywood actress, Chioma Okoye who is the spearhead of the campaign to raise funds for the treatment of ailing actor, Leo Mezie has spoken out that out of the ten million naira the actor needs, only six million Naira has been raised.
This campaign has been on for a couple of months now and despite the mandatory N2000 Nollywood practitioners were told to pay, the money is still not complete.
The actress then appealed to well-meaning Nigerians on her Instagram page to rise to Leo Mezie’s aid.
