Former TV personality Emma Ugoli set to undergo kidney transplant

For those who don't know Emmanuel Ugoli, he had the first ever all Nigerian music video countdown responsible for blowing up a lot of Nigerian acts when he was a top present at MBI 13 years ago.

Emmanuel has been battling chronic kidney disease for a few years now. Both his kidneys are dead and must be replaced to keep him alive. He survives on dialysis three times a week, which cost almost N50k per session.

Emma's sister gave him one of her kidneys two years ago in India but the kidney failed due to complications. Emmanuel now has to undergo another transplant but this time he's doing it in Nigeria at St Nicholas Hospital, Lagos Island. He is awaiting doctors flying in from the UK to St Nicholas the first week in September. Wishing him a successful surgery this time.

He will be fine.
Not such a difficult procedure.
Good thing is,he isn't soliciting here and there for funds.
Also good to know there's a health centre in Nig where he can have his transplant done.
Doesn't matter if the doctors are flying in from Venus or Mars!

linda..its very sad to see alot of Nigerians having kidney failures and kidney related disease of in recent times. this was not a common occurence some years ago(at least may be not publicised) the rate is quite alarming ..and these people are just the ones we know..what about those that just die in silence that we never get to hear? i dont have any medical knowledge or accumen but i think it would be better to have a good look into our diet or most especially the water we drink in Nigeria...i seriously believe that something is wrong somewhere or is ut just me overthinking?

I'm with u bro/sis.
Even cancer seems to be on the rise and I can even say it is worse than AIDS.
Perhaps it has to do with technology...u know, our phones, ipads and stuff. We have it on our person all the time. Some ppl even sleep with these things right beside their ear so they'll hear once a mail drops or a ping comes in.
God will see us through sha...

His surname is Ugolee. Linda inadvertently wrote "Ugoli", how is that same as "Ogoli"?
