Nollywood actor, Prince James Uche

Nollywood actor James Uche needs N11million for kidney transplant—FWON

Abuja –  Mr Sunday Awoji, the National President of Filmmakers Welfare Organisation of Nigeria (FWON), says ailing Nollywood actor, Prince James Uche needs N11 million to undergo kidney transplant abroad.

He stated this on Friday during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
“Prince James Uche has been very sick and incapacitated for some years now, and it has become obvious that he cannot provide the required funds to have the necessary medical attention.

“He is currently hospitalised in Lagos due to kidney related ailment, and urgently needed to be taken to Indian for a transplant that will gulp N11 million,”Awoji explained.

He added that another Nollywood actor, Romanus Amunta, popularly known as Natty, was also critically down with paralysis in Enugu State.

According to Awoji, it is in its effort to intervene that FWON recently inaugurated its “Save a Soul” intervention campaign geared towards raising funds for the medical care of the ailing actors.

“As an NGO within Nollywood that seeks to ensure the wellbeing of filmmakers, especially on health related issues, FWON has decided to intervene.

“We decided to cry out to Nigerians of goodwill, and everyone who loves Nollywood to give towards saving these precious souls.”

He explained that movie producers, actors, fans, other Nigerians of goodwill had donated towards the intervention funds, but the required amount was yet to be realised.

“So far, we have only got less than a million naira, and we had to quickly send delegates to Lagos and Enugu to take care of their immediate medical needs.

“We are still hoping and calling on everyone to contribute towards this rescue mission,’’ he pleaded.

According to him, FWON is planning other options possible, including visiting corporate bodies, Area councils and Humanitarian organisations to expediently raise the required funds.

“Only Nollywood cannot do it; we therefore need the help of everyone as quickly as possible to save our brothers.”

NAN reports that the veteran Nollywood actor Uche was a former Vice President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).

He is still struggling with the illness that has kept him off the screen for over eight years now.(NAN)
