"Nollywood has abandoned me" - says ailing actor Peter Bunor

The ailing actor who has been suffering from stroke for a while now told Vanguard in tears that he has been abandoned by his colleagues in Nollywood. Bruno, who has relocated to Asaba, said:
"Since this thing happened there has been no single actor that called me to ask about my condition. It is a shame on their part. Would they say they don’t know that I am sick?’
‘I had a stroke and that was the end of it. I was unconscious, and if you are unconscious you are dead. It was when I opened my eyes that I realized that I was in a church here in Delta State. I didn’t even know when they brought me down to this place. All I could remember is that I was on admission for a long time before they took me to a church where God healed me.’

We need to teach people about personal responsibility in Nigeria. You had stroke because you did not take care of your High Blood Pressure. And what has Nollywood got to do with your continuous ailment. Didn't they pay you when you were acting? This shit has to stop. People should stop blaming other for and in their calamity.

Anonymous said...

If (God forbid) this man dies, you'd see all them actors Guild of nigeria, & their many redundant associations investing time & money for candle light processions, burial, newspaper ads & all what not. They won't do anything now for an ailing colleague that's still alive.

that is life for you. what of his wife and children? all these actors and actresses mess about on set, and forget the people who love them (family, friends,etc), they think their colleagues care? hmmn. treat those people who love u well, so when u are in need, they will always be there for you.

Ok sorry and get well soon,but try and visit a caardiologist,not just the church,God uses doctors to treat and heal you.not all strokes are spiritual,most are due to poor blood pressure control and neglect of ones health.

We celebrate the dead not the living. When ur alive and need help people don't want to associate with you, the ignore ur calls and shut u off, when you die they arrange befitting burial where they come to read nice funeral tributes to u. It's not a nollywood thing , it's a Nigerian syndrome.

Mr man, were you not paid for your roles? Why should it be the responsibility of other actors to pay your hospital bills? Life is a bitch with ups and downs. If you need help, ask for help and stop complaining that your fellow actors have abandoned you abeg. Get well soon sha...

i hope you get well soon, but on the other hand Nollywood can't take care of every sick actor/actress...the very Nollywood is full of huslers, trying to make money and earn a living. You don't see broke actors in the states, crying to Hollywood to help them out...if you need help, please ask for help...is Nollywood a person??? if you need help, ask friends, NGOs, etc...which one is Nollywood again? please who is this Nollywood? lol you work for a company/organization, they pay you for your services, end of story...abi when the actors were making the little or much they were making who were they sharing it with? Nollywood?? Pls Nollywood is a business entity and an organization...if I act in lets say 10 movies, does that make me part of Nollywood and entitled to an emergency fund when I need it?? abeg if that's the case i'm coming back to act ooo!!! lol you get a health insurance policy for situations like this...anywaz i can go on and on, but i'm tried of typing abeg

AnonymousMay 12, 2013 at 8:59 PM: You took the letters right from my thumbs! Mr Bruno didn't ask for their money. Their visits might have even quickened his recovery sef. Cos when someone is ill, love and care from family, friends and well wishers is VERY important. Or else that person might lose the will to live.

The man is not asking for money . Its jes care nd luv from his colleagues nd that will do a lot of change bt its too bad day deir so called nollywood do not care abt deir members until dey die

This man and his son contributed to our entertainment. The least anybody nay his collegues can do is wish him well. Not blame him for getting sick and asking why he was forgotten. Oga get well. Some wannabes are looking for a vigil to gather and post "burial tinz".

As a matter of fact, I pity his condition. Wishing him soonest recovery. Nonetheless, all the actors/actresses are bird of same feather. How many people did Peter Buno visited on their sick bed?

Anonymous said...

I know he's been down with stroke but received devine healing from God in Winners Chapel last year and he even testified. Linda I think you should be keeping to recent news. He's hale and hearty now and we give God praise for using His servant Oyedepo to heal him(Peter Bunor).

Talk to Nigerian government Not Nollywood actors...every citizen should have health insurance with the amount of crude Nigeria is producing...but we sit silent and our politicians are stealing, loading, packing and stuffing our money in various oversea bank account. Another is to make serious meaningful relationships in Nollywood so when hard times like this comes you will have friends that will campaign create awareness for help for you. I personally have learnt, this entertainment industry is filled with unappreciative folks....no matter how you help their career....they don't care to say thank you. plan for your future as much as you can....especially in times of sickness

Ibinabo said the actors rejected national health scheme, why won't they get sick?

VICTOR EKEANYANWU said...

Everybody knows where Hollywood is in America. Please where is Nollywood in Nigeria??? I don't watch Nollywood movies anymore so I guess I waved my rights to criticize them. But all the same, I think there is a fundamental issue in Nollywood. A lot of fake people who end up as government appointees without knowing jackshit about politics or the people either. They keep abandoning their own in times of hardship and when they go to visit, they take a million pictures for PR sake. They've refused to act movies that buttress the essence of humanity and living. Instead they are interested in joining Ghanaians in their pornographic quest. I've never seen a situation where a supposed big brother learns from a learner. That said, I wish Peter Bunor the best. He used to be my favorite together with his son Jnr. way back then. Speedy recovery to you Sir

Trisha said...

Nollywood will rather pay £5 million each to people to shave their hair for some useless movie role BUT they can't help an actor like this man to get his life back. Shame on all of them as a whole.

If you don't have anything good to say, just zip it. they don't have to wear rag or stop living well before they could help. At least spare a little from what Almighty God gave them. All the money dont have to cone from them, they can set up a committee to raise money for who ever need it among them. If na party they will come buga dey show logo, spray money like they didn't work for it.

MY Broda I feel your pain. You should by now knw that there is no love in Nigeria. Everyone is seeking for his/her own selfish interest. If any 1 offers u little love @ all, take it. Expect the worst frm this country cos Love is dead and buried in Nigeria.We only have religious pple but not Godly pple. *smh for the black man in dark continent*
