‘Veteran Nollywood actor, Zack Orji, survives 2 brain surgeries’

The president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, has disclosed that Nollywood actor Zack Orji has undergone two successful brain surgeries and is currently in good health.

Rollas confirmed this in an interview with Afia TV on Wednesday, saying Zack now needs a post-surgery checkup abroad.

Rollas expressed dismay at those who propagated false rumors regarding Orji’s death.

He stressed the damaging consequences of such misinformation, particularly in the age of the internet, when people prioritize building their online profile over accuracy.

He said, “Because of the internet age, people just want to grow their page and they can spill nonsense, that was why somebody woke up yesterday morning and said Zack has passed on and I quickly reacted.

“Zack is never in a position of seriously needing attention as we speak, if not because of privacy, I would have just connected him on the phone here, you will see him.

“He just needs a post-surgery evaluation abroad, which we are gradually gathering money to send him abroad for that.

“He has survived two brain surgeries, he is in good health, and he is speaking. For somebody to wake up and say that Zack has passed on is inhuman.”

News emerged on social media on Tuesday that the ailing thespian had died.

However, Rollas urged the public to disregard the rumours, saying the actor is alive.

Orji had been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the National Hospital in Abuja on New Year’s Eve.
