Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo has recounted how presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, Peter Obi reached out to him when his mother died in 2011.

Kanayo, in an interview with Afia TV, disclosed that in 2011 after his mother’s burial, Obi called to send his condolences.

He said that the politician sent him 250k for the burial which was the price of a cow in 2011.

The thespian stated that some people would have expected Obi, who at the time was the governor of Anambra State, to give him millions but he only sent him the amount that could purchase a cow.

He did, however, state that, regardless of how much Obi sent, the most important thing was that he made time in his busy schedule to contact him and express his regrets.


He stressed that anyone who cannot make time to return his call should not identify to themselves as his friend.

He said, “In 2011, I was to bury my mum and I had many senators I had friends and I wrote to all of them. Two weeks after the funeral, Peter Obi called me at 1 am in his little voice, o sim ‘nwanne I just got your letter, I know the burial is over, You know I would have come if I had seen the letter’.

“He sent me exactly the price of a cow. You know somebody would have thought he would give you two million for burial in 2011.

“I think he went to the market and priced the cow, the cow was 250,000 and that is what he sent to me. But the story here is he was the Governor but he had time to call me.”
