Fans took to social media on Sunday to mourn the passing of the actor known for his comical roles on screen, who passed away after a protracted battle with kidney disease.

The Chairman, Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, could not be immediately reached for comments on the actor’s demise as phone calls and texts made his known line were not responded to on Sunday evening.

Meanwhile, a social commentator, Morris Monye, via his X handle, @Morris_Monye, while mourning the actor, said help was raised to assist the deceased as he battled with health issues.

Muonagor was said to have suffered kidney failure and was on dialysis.

The news of his demise came a few days after a viral video where the actor solicited funds to help him have a Kidney transplant.

Monye wrote, “Deeply heartbroken by the news of Amaechi Muonagor’s passing. He was a talented Nollywood actor whose presence on our screens was truly masterful.

In the social media video earlier showing the Nollywood comedy legend in poor health and begging for financial help from Nigerians, he was seen in bed with a bandage on his chest, barely able to talk.

Another actor, sitting next to him, explained that Muonagor needed money to pay for a kidney transplant.

His death is coming even as Nigerians are yet to get past the death of Nollywood actor John Okafor, better known as Mr Ibu, who recently died.
