The talented actor, who has starred in many traditional Nigerian movies, went public with his illness for the first time in a video shared on the social media.
Ani said he requires N2.8 million to foot his hospital bill and cannot raise the funds all by himself, which is why he’s now pleading for financial support from Nigerians.
Speaking from his sickbed, Ani said: I’ve been in this hospital since 7th of December, for a major surgery and at the end of the surgery it expanded to a very dangerous one.
“I’m soliciting help from my people, my members, my friends, well wishers, and those that love me so much”.
Ani added that: “The bill is too much, I cannot carry it alone. Your contribution will go a long way to pay for the bill. I’m still taking medication in the hospital.”
He noted that some members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria have come to visit him.
He said: “I thank you all, for those who have contributed I thank you, for those who have not, I also thank you. I know I shall join u soon on set to continue to shoot.”
