Veteran actor Pa Kasumu (Kayode Odumosu) is battling grave health issues.
He is battling an affliction disclosed as ‘Heart and Liver disease’.
The case of the comic role interpreter is coming just after that of celebrated composer and producer, OjB Jezreel, real names Babatunde Okungbowa, who battled a life threatening Kidney problem. His friends and associates had to rally round to raise the N15 million required for a transplant.
Pa Kasumu, in his own case needs to urgently raise N12m to stay alive.
Sources confirmed he has been battling this ailment since 2009 and is currently admitted at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) over this development.
The protracted fight with ill health is said to have drained his ‘meagre resources’ over the years.
And his family and friends are struggling to raise N12m to put a stop to the phenomenon before it cost his life (there are said to be complications already).
Appeals are now being made to the general public to come to the aid of the 60yr old that has put in some 40years into the entertainment industry.
Banners on social media platforms and mass messages are part of the strategies being employ to get sympathisers to donate to a Diamond Bank Account.
The account name is Oluwakayode Olugbenga Odumosu and the account number is 0036059543.
A similar appeal by friends and associates of OjB Jezreel caught the attention of Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, who donated $100,000 to cover the entire cost of the transplant.
