I truly hate to be a harbinger of bad news but I want to confirm that MUNA OBIEKWE IS DEAD! And am so angry! Yes not just because we lost another great talent but because in this industry we are not our brothers kepper.

Yes,Muna mighty have wanted or lived a private life but people knew he was sick,people knew his health condition and yet what did they do,some tried but if they had cried out to the world MUNA might have gotten help. We are just colleagues NO REAL FRIENDS! Rest In Peace MUNA

Just confirmed it from some close friends and relatives that he is really dead. The message from twitter that he was still alive was from a fake account. So this is my pain, how do you know what to believe and what not to believe? Where do we draw the line?

Over nine thousand people on twitter have believed that he is still alive because of the fake twitter account. REST IN PEACE BRO! I was really hoping that it was a rumor. God rest your soul. This is too painful. Whoever put that message out not the fake twitter account should be careful. Don't play games with people's lives like that.

"We always know the real ones... Out of a million, we always know the ones that have that IT factor. The ones that make us want to rewind... I am enveloped by sadness that I will never get to meet and shake your hand.

You had the ability to make it alright to watch a bad Nolly flick... That is what a talented actor can do. They draw you in... And that you did dear Muna... You always had a way of drawing us"

May his soul rest in peace.
