It’s been years of struggle for Emma Ugolee, one of Nigeria’s finest media personalities as he battles to stay alive while managing a failing Kidney.
In other to carry out a major kidney surgery involving a transplant, Emma Ugolee needs N50 million. However, due to the past experiences in the past with some patients with similar health conditions, people are becoming a little more unconcerned about helping, especially if they do not know the individual in person.
In 2016, the Nigerian entertainment industry lost OJB Jezreel and Nomoreloss to the same disease, now Emma Ugolee struggles to live.
When the TV, newspapers, and online personality attended the burial of the late music producer, he stated that he had lost at least three close associates to Kidney failure.
Emma Ugolee has been battling with kidney disease for about five years and now and has lived with stage 5 of chronic kidney disease.
He has been managing the disease himself with his resources but it got worse to the point where his wife left him and he now requires the public support of $100,000 (N50 million), to get a new kidney.
As at the time of this report, 175 people have raised $7,614 out of $100,000 on his Gofundme account in 21 days.

According to Thenet Columnist, Tobi Amoo, “Giving beggars alms is not really a long-term solution to helping their case. If it were, you wouldn’t find them there the next day. Or the day after.
If we really want to help those who beg amongst us and not just assuage our guilt, we need to stop and think about how we can make their lives better and not just the next minute. Even if it means stopping ourselves from giving that alms at that very moment.
Except if it’s a life-threatening situation and it involves Emma Ugolee. Then help must be rendered forthwith. No amount is too small.”
A contribution fund has been set up for him: 1002786554 (Emmanuel Ugolee, Zenith Bank).
