Veteran Nollywood actor, Duro Michael has cried out for financial help to replace his amputated leg with an artificial one.
The script interpreter who battled diabetes for a long time, which led to the amputation of his leg pleads financial support and assistance from the public.
The actor was seen in a video a few months ago asking for financial support and assistance from the public, saying that he believes he would be healed soon by God’s grace. He further stated that no amount of assistance or support can be regarded insignificant or too small at this time.
According to information available, Emeka Rollas-led Actors Guild of Nigeria has yet to come to the ailing actor’s help. However, in a recent video, reveals the actor’s leg after it was amputated.
Despite his frail appearance, Duro Michael was spotted wearing his trademark smiles as he pleaded for popular support.
The year 2021 saw the deaths of several talented Nollywood actors, a development that has left the Nigerian film industry in despair.
This is a call to Nollywood practitioners to rise to the occasion and assist one of theirs now that he’s alive to avert another avoidable death.
He was seen sitted on a plastic chair.
“I dey greet una ooh, my brothers and sisters una don see am na. Na diabetes na im cause am ooo,” Duro said.

“I am still that your person, still your guy. I still be the same person way I be, God bless you,” Michael said.
