Nollywood Legend, Chike Bryan, Passes On

By Rashidat Akashat

Nollywood veteran Chike Bryan, who had a kidney transplant in June 2014, is reported to have died on Monday at Lasuth-Ikeja, Lagos.

According to his friend and colleague Mac Collins Chidebe, who took to Facebook to break the news, Bryan was on his way to work when he received a call from home. The phone call made him run into a frenzied state.

Bryan was president of the Scriptwriters Guild of Nigeria (SGN).

Chike Bryan had a stroke

His friend observed that the actor was not fine and tried to calm him down, however the observation was a bit late because Bryan had a stroke and started puking at the same time.

The actor was diagnosed with renal failure in July 2013. He then had a successful kidney transplant thanks to Goodluck Jonathan who donated N10 million through the Actor’s Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president Ibinabor Fiberesima, for his treatment abroad.

Chidebe wrote:

“A guy I have worked so closely with in almost 10 months. Suddenly he disappears from my life. Death, O death, why?

“He woke up this morning hale and hearty. He had breakfast at a friend’s and was on his way to the office.

“Praying fervently for him, our friend made a turn and drove on neck break speed to his house where he picked his wife and rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted but later referred to LASUTH in Ikeja.

“On getting to LASUTH, the wife was told the hospital could not admit him for lack of bed space. For almost five hours my buddy was hanging on to dear life without treatment. How callous can some medical personnel be! An emergency case was treated with so much nonchalance.

“So much grief, sorrow, and tears in his home. CBN left behind a young wife and 5 lovely kids. I pray God to give the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”

Bryan is popular with these great movies A Million Madness, Magic Cap and Polygamy.
