Things have gone from worse to worst for Nollywood actor Prince James Uche.

Early in the year it was revealed that the former President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria was in a bad state of health.

The actor is now at Godspower Hospital, 32 Road, C Close, House 7, Festac Town, Lagos and needs N10m to undergo a Kidney transplant and eye surgery abroad.

Three years ago, Prince James Uche’s wife and children left him. Shortly after, he was served an eviction notice from his landlord to vacate his residence at 45, Yetunde Brown Street, Gbagada, Lagos.

Despite earlier promises by the AGN led by Ibinabo Fiberesima, the guild has not donated money to the ailing actor.

In a chat with a Punch correspondent who paid him a visit early this year, the 'Lost Kingdom' actor recounted the beginning of his ailment.
