The producer of Idan Irawo on Africa Magic has been down for some time now and the result of tests carried out shows that one of his kidneys has packed up.

He would need about $40,800 (N14.8Million) for the cost of a Kidney transplant, flight, accommodation for three people, (himself, kidney donor, and caregiver to carry out the transplant at Columbia Asia Hospital in India.

Mercy’s campaign seemed to be yielding fruits as some Nigerians have expressed a desire to help.
