News broke out this week that Mr. Odoi has lost his 2 kidneys (they are spoilt and so have been removed from his body – “kidneyless”) after battling with ill-health for over 2 years now. Mr. Odoi Mensah has to cough up $300 weekly to stay live.

Doctors have declared both kidneys incapable of performing their key functions effectively to keep him alive. To stay alive, the actor has to spend $300 weekly on dialysis. Actress Juliet Ibrahim, who runs an NGO that advocates on kidney related issues as well as help kidney, failed victims, has done her bit to donate to Mr. Odoi.

Speaking on Peace FM, Mr. Odoi disclosed that “I can’t pay the bills. I even owe the hospital GHC 12,000. Unfortunately, the actors’ guild can’t help me financially. They don’t have the means to. But I must admit that Juliet Ibrahim has been helping me with some money.”

In an emotion laden tone, he added “if I get my healthy back, I will thank God but if this is the way God wants me to leave this world too, may his will be done. I don’t have anything to say more or do. Such is life.” He also used the opportunity to advise the youth and ‘showbizers’ to “check your eating habit and lifestyle. Don’t eat anyhow. Don’t eat late in the night. Exercise too. It’s very key for a healthy living.”

He announced the below line to the general public – both home and abroad to call: +233208159209 (his pastor) and support. You can also call Juliet Ibrahim’s cell number, that is: +233249440240 (Juliet Ibrahim) and make your donations.

The A-List actors: Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro, Nadia Buari, Prince David Osei, Kafui Danku, Van Vicker, Roslyn Ngissah, Nana Ama Macbrown, Agya Koo, Lil Win, Kwaku Manu, and the likes are challenged to stage a fund raising concert for Mr. Odoi Mensah.

During his tenure of office as the actors guild president, Mr. Odoi always fought for the welfare of actors – campaigned against filmmakers who ask upcoming actors to pay and pick audition forms before casting them for movie roles, filmmakers who sleep with unsuspecting actress, better professional fees for actors, insurance for actors, arbitrating on behalf of actors, amongst other achievements.

Mr. Odoi Mensah is a veteran actor who has been acting for more than 3 decades. He started acting on stage and migrated unto the screens and has shot well over 50 movies. He started acting on stage with notable actors such as: David Dontoh, Solomon Sampa, Dzifa Glikpo, Grace Omaboe, and others. We pray you help this humane gentleman with funds to save his doleful situation. Until then…..MOTWUM!!
