Veteran actor and former National President of Association of Nigeria Theatre Arts Practitioners, ANTP, Prince Jide Kosoko, has said that he got to know about the ill-health of his colleague, Kayode Odumosu, a.k.a. Pa Kasumu in the newspapers.
Speaking with NollywoodReel on phone yesterday, Kosoko said it is quite unfortunate that he only got wind of Kasumuâ€™s deteriorating health on the pages of newspapers, but he said he has taken swift action to make sure he gets adequate attention.
â€œYes, I got to know about it from the papers and I have called him. Personally, I have called some people and we are trying all we can to get him out of the situation. I think a lot of people are also making efforts to save him too,â€ Kosoko said.
The 56-year old Pa Kasumu is suffering from liver, kidney and heart ailment.
It was gathered that the Master’s degree holder has spent a fortune on the ailment as he spends N34,000.00 weekly on the terminal sickness.
Consequently, Pa Kasumu is calling on friends, business associates and well-meaning Nigerians home and abroad to please assist him financially in his quest to treat and find a lasting solution to his problem.
