Tunde Alabi, a Nollywood actor who featured in the TV series the village Headmaster, is critically ill at Lagos General Hospital, with one of his leg set for amputation in order to save his life.
Mr Alabi, who is currently dependent on his colleagues for survival, has no home, money or close help. He is on the verge of been evicted from the hospital because he can no longer sustain his continuous stay there.
The veteran actor who has been battling diabetes for years with no treatment because of financial constraints, reached out to people through Mr Paul Julius, a movie director to help save his life.
Speaking about the veteran actor, Mr Paul Julius said “If there’s a better word to use in place of veteran, then that should come for this old war horse in the world of make -believe. Uncle Tunde Alabi, has been on the acting scene since the glorious days of television drama in Nigeria, and he ‘s today one of the last of that octopus called The Village Headmaster, a television drama that was in-thing in its days on National Television.
