Oh dear, just after the Nollywood world lost one of them, veteran actor, Martins Njubuigbo, popularly known as elder Maya. The whole entertainment world has also gotten another shock, and it’s about one of their favourites, Mr Tunde Alabi.
At the moment he is currently at the Lagos General Hospital waiting for funds to carry out a surgery on his leg. According to sources, he is a diabetes patient and has been battling it for years. Long story cut short, Mr Tunde has been admitted for days and now needs help from the public to carry out his surgery. What’s more shocking is that sources are saying he is even homeless with no family members around.
However that he is broke is no news, because we all they got paid very little back then. Money that couldn’t even sustain them, but they did it for passion, so that’s not shocking. Anyway, one of his colleagues, Paul Julius who has been running around for him has got something to say. We call on his colleagues in the industry to please come to his aid. It;s not about flashing millions online, it’s about helping others and that’s who a real big boy/girl is if you ask me. What Julius said after the cut….
“If there’s a better word to use in place of veteran, then that should come for this old war horse in the world of make –believe.
Uncle Tunde Alabi has been on the acting scene since the glorious days of television drama in Nigeria and he’s today one of the last of that octopus called The Village Headmaster, a television drama that was the in – thing in its days on National Television.
His role in the now rested soap opera ‘PALACE’ produced by Ralph Nwadike was one that viewers will not forget in haste. This thorough-breed professional of the old order who is equally at home with the youngsters of today, impacting knowledge and valuable experience into them whenever he has the opportunity is currently down with ailment which has put his right foot in danger to the point of amputation if urgent help is not given.
He’s laying helplessly at the General Hospital, Lagos waiting to lose his right leg or even worse. He has done his part in putting smiles on faces and happiness in the lives of millions home and abroad, it’s our turn to help him. Nothing is too small…HE will appreciate your candid help.
