Muonagor’s Death Unfortunate, Says Actors Guild Enugu Chapter



The veteran Nollywood actor Amechi Muonagor, 62, passed away on Monday. The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Enugu Chapter, according to its chairman, Ene Brown, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu that the deceased had battled various ailments for a very long time. The chapter called the actor’s death unfortunate.


“His sickness became worse in 2024 with stroke, diabetics and kidney failure.


“Mounago battled with diabetes for over 10 years and has been managing it. It was only these past six months that he started appealing to the public for assistance.


“Just like John Okafor, it is not their fault that they became diabetic.


“We did our best in supporting him with the little we can as an organisation and individuals, but death is inevitable.


‘Uncle’ as he is fondly called was energetic, friendly and acrobatic; we enjoyed him while he was alive. We really missed him so much,” he said.

On why the industry was recording deaths, Brown said that death is inevitable for everyone adding that the only difference was that their members were popular as actors and actresses.


“We are not God and cannot change nature. People got to know about their death and are reacting,” he said.


According to Brown, the company strives to make sure that its members take care of their health by scheduling routine checkups.


“The organisation has initiated a health insurance scheme for members to curtail their health expenses.


“The industry is doing its best to ensure that actors/actresses sign to Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) that allows them access to 600 hospitals in Nigeria,” he said.


NAN reports that the talented Nollywood actor Muonagor, a native of Idemili in Anambra, was born in Aug. 20, 1962.


He was a producer and performer with a very magnificent movie presence.


He received a nomination in 2016 for the AMVCA 2017 Best Actor in a Comedy.


Following his youth service in 1989, Muonagor spent a few years working for NAN before he began acting, appearing as Akunatakasi in the Nigerian film Taboo 1.
