“Health issues can happen to anyone no matter who you are. Including me because for the past three weeks, some of you have no idea. I am going to tell you a short story.
“It happened that on the 5th of December, 2022, I was diagnosed with Cranio Pharyngitis also known as a brain tumour. I didn’t know I would be here to share my story.
“I had just finished shooting the last episode of my series and we were already editing it so that it can be out.
“I don’t know I will share my story with you, here I am sitting in my own seat, sharing with you how I had a tumour in my brain. It was so bad that I couldn’t read from the phone anymore. I couldn’t see with one of my eyes and it was also closing.
“Okay, we had to do surgery to remove it. I started laughing, I was laughing because I could remember the exact time in class or as medical students we were taught Cranio Pharyngitis and how it can affect your vision.
“And this was happening to me, I am thankful to you. I would not have come out of this without your support”, he stated.
