After he survived a serious setback, renowned Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu, has debunked rumours making the rounds that he was dead. The actor who had been absent from the screens due to his health condition, had battled stroke since August 2015 and had claimed he did not receive any sort of help from the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) to fight the condition.

Asuzu said, “For the period I was hospitalised, nobody from Nollywood, not even the president, 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.”

A few days ago, there was false news of his death spread through social media. Addressing the rumours, the actor, known for his bad boy roles, took to his Facebook to debunk it.

He posted, “My name is Ernest Chidozie Azuzu. Please I am not dead, for the people carrying rumours that their enemy is dead. I just wish them long life but this has proven what God said that people like me will not die because God is the maker of life.
