Chioma and Late Actor

Leo Mezie died on the 14th 0f May 2022 due to some complications after a kidney transplant.

In a lengthy note on Instagram, Toplis recounted how money was donated to the late actor in 2016 and how he proved to be dubious with the funds.

Toplis noted that Mezie once again asked for funds to be donated but people who helped in the past grew tired of his seeming dishonesty.

Popular Nollywood actor Leo Mezie’s death has continued to cause a buzz online, especially after his colleagues in the movie industry were bashed for not helping him during his lifetime. In a new development, Nollywood actress Chioma Toplis took to social media to share more details on Mezie’s death and how the film industry had rallied around to help him in the past.

In a lengthy note posted online, Toplis recounted how money was donated to Mezie in 2016 for him to undergo surgery and that he started to act sketchy when she and another actress volunteered to visit him at the hospital where he was in London.

Toplis noted that after a few months, Mezie returned and did not look like someone who had done a major surgery but he held a huge thanksgiving in the church where he claimed to have been miraculously healed.

Part of the actress’s caption reads:

He continued living his normal life. News broke through Actress Chioma Okoye’s foundation that he was ill again and needed donations. Money was contributed to an extent before he asked the foundation to give him the money. The quarrel started between him and the foundation. They said it was not in their agreement, that they don’t give or contribute to individual accounts. At this point, a lot of people lost interest. Even the AGN President Emeka came into that matter then to make sure it was resolved. A lot of actors posted and solicited for funds for him too.


Toplis added that people soon lost interest in Mezie’s case and it was obvious that he was enjoying the money he was making as a result of his illness.
