Nollywood’s veteran actor is down and almost going blind. The world of Bruno Iwuoha, known for his gentle and fatherly roles in many movies he has acted appears to be crumbling.
Reports say that Diabetes and glaucoma are taking a toll on the actor, such that he can only see faintly with just one eye, as he has gone blind on the other. With the remaining one gradually being affected by the bad one, the actor is said to be crying out for help to the general public. Surprisingly, the Nollywood industry and many of its rich actors cannot help one of their own.
Disillusioned and helpless, the grey-haired actor took his case to the popular Brekete Family Programme on 104.5FM in Abuja where he told his story about his current battle with diabetes and glaucoma.
According to the talented actor, he never knew he had diabetes until a violent armed robbery attack that landed him in the hospital. “I’ve gone to so many places; within the country and outside the country for treatment, until finally, finally, the thing – diabetes claimed one of my eyes. As I look at you now, I’m using only one eye. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one.
