After he survived a serious, renowned Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu has debunked rumours making the rounds that he was dead.

The actor who had been absent from the screens due to his health condition, had battled stroke since August 2015 and had claimed he did not receive any sort of help from the Actors Guild of Nigeria to fight the condition.

He also put on blast embattled past president of AGN, according to Asuzu “For the period I was hospitalized, nobody from Nollywood, not even the president, Ibinabo Fiberesima, visited me, and she heard that I was admitted there. My friends told her that I was down with stroke and she pretended as if she didn't hear. It's not fair. I'm a human being too. I am limping right now, because I have stroke. I am limping because my people don't care. I'm limping because the industry is already messed up,” the 'Royal War'.

Recall that few days ago, the news of his death came spreading like wild fire the same day his colleague, Ceejay Perez, died in a fatal motor accident in Onitsha, Anambra State.
But addressing the rumours, the actor, known for his 'bad boy' roles, took to his Facebook page to say he is not dead.

He wrote: “My name is Ernest Chidozie Azuzu. Please I am not dead, for the people carrying rumours that their enemy is dead. I just wish them long life but this has proven what God said that people like me will not die because God is the maker of life,” he stated..
