Filmmaker, Kunle Agboola down with kidney disease

Noolywood film producer, Kunle Agboola, the producer of Idan Irawo, a show aired on Africa Magic, reportedly has kidney disease.

Agboola is said to have been undergoing weekly dialysis at the Gbagada General Hospital, Lagos, for some time. His kidney disease, according to a statement by Michael Alonge, is at an advanced stage.

“According to his medical doctors, he is already stage 5 which is an advanced stage of chronic kidney disease and if we need to keep him alive to continue from where he stopped with life and his entertaining show, we need to support him with our finances,” said Alonge.

“Agboola is in dire need of everyone’ support in whatever way you can.”

The dialysis has reportedly gulped all the money Agboola has and he now requires financial assistance for a kidney transplant.

“From the tests and diagnosis carried out by medical experts, he was informed that he would need about $40, 800 (N14.8Million) for the cost of Kidney transplant, flight, accommodation for three people, (himself, kidney donor, and caregiver) to carry out the kidney
transplant operation at Columbia Asia Hospital in India.”

“Notable actress, Mercy Aigbe, having being intimated by Alonge Michael concerning his state of health, paid him a visit today, recorded a video of him in his present condition for her Instagram fans and followers to come to his aid financially.

“Mercy has also promised to champion the cause to raise a required fund from friends, family and lovers of Nollywood films for Mr. Agboola to undergo the Kidney transplant in India.”

The information to make donation to Agboola’s proposed surgery can be obtained from Mercy Aigbe’s Instagram page.
