Most of us always assumed these actors are very rich, something which is nourished in our subconscious mind owing to the flashiness and beauty they exhibit on and off the screens.
It may interest you to know that some of them have to go the extra mile to borrow in order to keep the fame up.
Well, theBBCghana.com presents to you these deceased Nollywood actors who died while begging the public for money to pay their medical bills.

4. Ashley Nwosu
Ashley Nwosu died in April 2011 after battling with liver complications at age 58.
5. Enebeli Elebuwa
