The Village Headmaster actor requires an undisclosed amount of money to save his leg or risk it being amputated.
Tunde Alabi, a veteran Nigerian actor is lying critically ill at a hospital in Lagos.
He reportedly needs financial assistance which may prevent the amputation of his leg.
According to Vanguard News , Alabi has been dealing with an issue of diabetes for a long period but has not been able to sponsor his treatment due to lack of funds.
Paul Julius , an actor and movie director is one of the sympathizers soliciting for funds that will help in the treatment of the Nollywood vet.
“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.”
“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. Thanks and God bless”, Julius appealed.
Tunde Alabi was one of the casts featured in the national television drama, “The Village Headmaster” written by Olusegun Olusola and directed by Dejumo Lewis .
He is one of the few surviving actors of the era.
