The Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Actorsâ€™ Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Prince Ifeanyi Dike, is down with a kidney problem, and needs at least N50 million toÂ bounce back hale and hearty.
P.M.NEWS gathered that the lively actor has been battling the ailment for about a year now, and has spent a lot on dialysis, but now, he needs the support ofÂ his colleagues and Nigerians in general to undergo a kidney transplant in India.
Speaking with P.M.NEWS, Dike said â€œyou know that Iâ€™m a shy person, so I have been trying to solve the problem on my own, but now that it has drained myÂ pocket, I have no choice than to seek help from friends.â€
National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Segun Arinze, told P.M.NEWS that the guild is currently making efforts to raise the money for Dikeâ€™sÂ treatment.
â€œItâ€™s a pathetic one actually because this man is one of the strong pillars of Nollywood. Weâ€™ve been reaching our friends to see how we can come to hisÂ rescue,â€ said Arinze.
Prince Ifeanyi Dike is one of the founders of Nollywood.
