The entertainment industry got bereaved few days ago when one of its own, actor Muna Obiekwe got snatched by the cold hands of death.
There were various insinuations as to what killed the actor and father of two. Here are Top 4 things you did not know about late Muna Obiekwe
However, the actor who had his private life, private, sadly died of  kidney disease. An ailment which the actor has been battling with for a while but thought he can come through it unscratched but it is sad to know the end right now.
Here are 4 things you did not know about the actor before he died:
1. He was a heavy drinker
Although the actor tried managing the kidney problem, he could not help not taking alcohol despite the doctor’s advice. At a point when the actor approached a Lagos doctor, he was told that if he manages it well, he can overcome it. The doctor made the deceased actor to know that if he can only do up to 20 dialyses, all will be fine.
However, a mother figure in the Nigerian Movie industry, Vera Kanu, while confirming his death said, “I was with him to the last hour. He was to do up to 20 dialyses; the doctor said if the dialysis improved his condition, the worse would certainly be over. He will be okay only if he stays away from alcohol but you know our artiste” she sadly said.

2. Muna Thought He Was Going To Survive The Kidney Ailment
Just like he did the tragic demise of his parents, Muna kept all hopes alive, thinking all will be well in the end. His tragic entrance shut out what he was known for… a man with zero worries. Munachimso whose name means ‘God is walking with me’, is coincidentally a amn who thinks just at the end, all will be fine.
Vera Kanu, who is his godmother revealed how the actor managed the situation, saying,  “He was managing it on his own. As a matter of fact, he has been managing it for a while until Ejiro Okurame and I came on board to help. We were combining resources to help him but there was very little we could do to save him. We had to enlist the help of Patience Ozokwor and Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) at a point. They rendered the help they could until he died.”

3. He was scared of the press
Being a private guy that he is and not wanting to be seen publicly as one of those celebs who begged even after making the imaginary big money from movies, Muna Obiekwe was said to have preferred to handle the situation all by himself. The actress who died on the tenth dialysis was said to have been spending a future on the frequent dialysis.
According to a close source, ”the dialysis was expensive for Muna. He was doing two in a week sometimes. And he would need blood injection on each occasion. Each appointment was costing him between N250, 000 to N300, 000; money he did not really have to spend. His health was eating deep into his purse yet Muna refused to go cap in hand begging for alms. He was a private guy who didn’t want the press or his colleagues to feast on his pain, and cast aspersions on Nollywood’s industry of beggars’.

4. He was one of the three busiest actors in Nollywood
Another thing you did not know about the actor is that Muna Obiekwe is one of the busiest actors in Nollywod. He is tagged alongside Mike Ezuronye and Yul Edochie. Muna is also the first cousin of Yul Edochie, which makes him a member of Pete Edochie’s family.
It would be recalled that the popular musician and music director, OJB Jezreel, had a kidney transplant in India with the help of his celebrity colleagues who donated generously. But in Muna’s case, there was a sad end, as the Internet went abuzz on Sunday, January 19, 2015 when news of his death surfaced online.

May his soul rest in perfect peace
