Azuzu claims he did not receive any sort of help from the former Actors' Guild of Nigeria president, Ibinabo Fiberesima, to fight his stroke condition.
Nollywood actor, Ernest Azuzu, has corrected the rumours concerning his death in a short Facebook post.
The rumour mill has been carrying the news that the actor died the same day that upcoming actor, Ceejay Perez, died in a fatal motor accident in Onitsha, Anambra State in eastern Nigeria.
Azuzu wrote on his Facebook, "my name is ernest chidozie azuzu pls am not dead for the people carrying rumours that my enemyis dead i just wish t5hem long life but this has proven what god said that people like me willnot die because GOD is the maker of life".
The actor has been absent from the screens due to his health condition. He has reportedly been battling with stroke.
He confirmed this in an interview with Daily Independent newspaper.
Azuzu said, “I was in LASUTH for two months, three days and for that long, nobody from Nollywood, not even Ibinabo Fiberesima, visited me. And she heard that I was admitted there. My friends told her that I was down with stroke and she pretended as if she didn’t hear. It’s not fair. I’m a human being too.”
“I am limping right now, because I have stroke. I am limping because my people don’t care. I’m limping because the industry is already messed up. I don’t know what Ibinabo is doing. Ibinabo is just gallivanting. She is having fun and that is not the reason we put her there. She should go out there and fight for our people,” he stated.
Ernest Asuzu is popular for his movie roles in Royal War (2009), Royal War 2 (2009) and Last Wedding (2004).
