Veteran actor Tunde Alabi who is best known for his roles in Village Headmaster, Mirror in the Sun, For Better for Worse, among other past soap operas has undergone operations to remove his right leg due to diabetes complication.
Before now, Nollywood producer, Paul Julius, brought Alabi’s health challenges and deplorable financial situation to light in a post on his Facebook handle. In the post Julius raised fear that the actor’s leg was about to be amputated and solicited help for him.
The post reads: “So sad! Our Veteran Actor’s foot finally AMPUTATED…..I’ve laboured through thick and thin to save the life of Uncle Tunde….assisted vigorously by the indefatigable Chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter, Mr. DON PEDRO AGANBI and through the contributions of a few spirited colleagues and fans, we were only able to manage to keep him alive but not with his full body as our once vibrant UNCLE TUNDE ALABI loses his right foot today at General Hospital, Lagos to Diabetes Mellitus. Now he’s faced with another battle for survival…..Expensive drugs required to heal the amputated leg……no home to return, no money to afford one as his ailment has suck up his entire finances. We have done our best… …What would you rather do to assist him….just put something in his account no matter how small and the Lord will reward you abundantly. Thank you. Name: TUNDE OBAFEMI ALABI
