Elderly actresses, Iya Rainbow (Esther Idowu Philips), Fali Werepe (Modupe Johnson) and wife of ailing actor, Pa Kasumu (Kayode Odumosu) have initiated a campaign.
They are making the rounds and appealing to fans and friends of the ailing actor to donate to his medical fund.
This move comes after Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola, reportedly withdrew his offer of free medical treatment to the ailing actor.
After reportedly undergoing series of tests – on the instructions and facilities provided by the Governor to determine the scope of his ailment, Mr. Fashola had ended up donating only N1.5m to Kasumu’s cause, those who should know told us.
The informed sources also say that the Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has followed up with a N2m gift.
The actor needs N12m to treat what is labelled ‘Liver and Heart’ related ailment.
Sources confirmed Kasumu’s wife and actresses Iya Rainbow and Fali Werepe are going round the offices of movie marketers, sponsors and utilizing television appearances to appeal for funds.
It is not clear what the effort has yielded at press time.
