Since the viral photos, the Actors Guild of Nigeria has come under intense criticisms, with disturbed fans questioning the Guild’s mandate.

However, the AGN is yet to react to Aguba’s viral photos, its national president, Emeka Rollas has made recent moves to address crowdfunding for veterans in distress.

Last month, the Guild introduced a Trust fund to aid members with health crisis. It unveiled the fund committee led by veteran actress Joke Silva in a statement shared via its president Emeka Rollas.

“We also set up the AGN Trust Fund to help put a stop to the usual alms begging to raise funds to support our members in health crises. This was also to discourage the manner some persons publicly gifts nollywood sick members financial aid. We consider these methods very embassing for an Industry that contributes so much to the country's GDP,” an excerpt of the statement stated.

“To make these supports more civil, donors can mention specific person's they wish to medically assist whilst depositing money to the Trust Fund account. The Trust Fund is in the hands of trusted Committee headed by Veteran Actor, Joke Silva, ” he said.
