Leo Mezie’s cause of death
Bennievibez gathered that Leo Mezie’s cause of death according to his colleague, has to do with kidney issues, noting that the Nollywood actor was recovering from a kidney transplant before he gave up the ghost on Saturday, May 14, 2022.
She wrote on Instagram: ”Actor Leo Mezie is dead. He died on Saturday in Abuja while recovering from a kidney transplant. His corpse has been moved to Umuahia his hometown. RIP Leo,” the post added.
Meanwhile, Bennievibez remembers that earlier in July 2016, information surfaced in the Nigerian media that the now late Leo Mezie was down with a kidney-related disease. The news came barely a month after popular Nigerian music producer, OJB Jezreel died. The latter died three years after he underwent a kidney transplant.
In 2016, Leo Mezie disseminated his account details and welcomed contributions while his colleagues in the Nigerian entertainment industry rallied around to raise the over 60,000 pounds needed to carry out a transplant.
Before his death, Leo Mezie featured in movies like Royal Messenger, Secret Adventure, Final War, Total War, and Heart of a Slave. The actor died two days after another actor Gbenga Richards was announced dead.
