CELEBRITY GIST: Despite getting a lot of love and support from many Nigerians, Nollywood Actor Leo Mezie has expressed his disappointment over his friends who deserted him when he was critically ill and needed them the most.
The actor who is for ever grateful to God for healing him of Kidney Failure revealed he got lots of support from the people he least expected and had learnt a lot from his tragic experience. This made him set up a foundation called Leo Mezie Kidney Foundation to help others in need of such help.
Here’s what he told the Entertainers:
“Normally, i expected my friends and colleagues to rally round me but they were the least people that showed up when i needed them. I can count my 5 friends that railed round me, not to talk of my colleagues. That experience taught me a lot about humanity, based on that kind of love people showed me when i was down. I never imagined that such love existed among humanity. I was showned love from people i least expected such gestures from. I never knew that this profession could allow people love me this way. You should see the kind of messages i got from my facebook and the kind of money that i got. I was not getting peanuts but huge amount of money. And each time i received such money, i asked my account officer to trace the sender so i could call and thank them but they always love to remain anonymous.”
Leo Mezie also added that:
“There are a lot of people that are going through what i experienced but they are not that lucky. Many of them would die due to the ailment and because of that, i decided to start up Leo Mezie Kidney Foundation as a way saying thank you and helping people.
Already, we have begun work and are treating 2 people” – Leo Mezie
Thank God for the life of Nollywood Actor Leo Mezie. May God continue to bless him as he help others in need.
