Actor Hanks Anuku has called on the Delta State governor Sheriff Oborevwori and the public for support after a video of himself speaking in a manner that suggests he might be unstable went viral on the Internet.
The actor left fans worried again about his mental health as the video circulated on the internet on Wednesday.
In the video, Hanks Anuku was having a discussion with another man who was admiring a young lady who walked by. The actor was muttering several words that were hard to put together.
Several Nigerians stormed Instagram to react to the video and questioned the actor’s mental health.
On Thursday, Hanks Anuku posted a video on Instagram calling on the governor and Nigerians to support him financially. Hanks said he has tried his best to uphold his status as an entertainer and it is good to let everyone know what he is going through.
He wrote: “I thank u all fans n my guvnor sheriff. I have tried my best to uphold my status as an entertainer, so it’s good to let u all know what I’m going through.
“I have a family and will love to get all the help from u all. Dropping my account details nothing is ever too small. 0760704404 H.C.Anuku Access Bank. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.”
Questions about the actor’s mental health first started last year after a video of Hanks looking tattered on the streets went viral.
The footage generated reactions on social media as many speculated that the actor was mentally unstable while others claimed the video was from a movie set. However, the actor who reacted to the video accused people of trying to destroy his image.
Hanks Anuku, however, claimed he had been on set and the pictures and videos were being used to tarnish his reputation.
He wrote: “Tell all these motherf*ckers who write crap about me to stop writing about me and leave me alone. If they wanna act in the movie, they can Come to me. I’ve been on set and anyone using those pictures and videos on set to try and destroy my image, may the holy spirit forgive you.”
