Nollywood actor, Ernest Obi, made the revelation via his Instagram on Saturday, May 14, 2016, as he helped to solicit funds on behalf of the actor fondly known as Elder Maya.

Obi disclosed that Elder Maya is in need of a whooping sum of N1m to help combat the liver disease the veteran actor is reportedly suffering from.

Obi shared two posts on the subject, first sharing a photo of Elder Maya as we knew him and a severely emaciated version of him, commenting:

"Help save ELDER MAYA'S LIFE.

Obi shared another photo of Elder Maya, imploring the public to help the veteran actor:

"Please help save ELDER MAYA'S life. ACTOR. POET. SINGER. an unrepentant THESPIAN.

"MARTINS NJUBUIGBO fondly known as Elder Maya or Papa Labista is down with a chronic liver problem. One million Naira is needed for immediate operation.

"Let's help save his life whilst he yet lives. Ratther than celebrate him when he is gone. Please help bring this Old war horse, who has given d best of his life to entertaining us.. God bless you.. ERNEST OBI.

"NJUBIGBO MARTIN C ACCOUNT NOS ARE DIAMOND BANK 0040375990 FIRST BANK 3040564787.

"Pls do not pay money into any other account.. Shalom."

It seems sad and unfortunate that members of the Nigerian Actors Guild have on various occasions, been reported to be suffering from one illness or the other without the association stepping forward to help in any way.
