The popular comedian, Julius Agwu had been sick and recently had a successful brain surgery in the United State.
In an interview with Yes International magazine, the comedian opened up on his weight loss and brain surgery a few months ago.
The genesis of his illness
Julius said he can not specially say when and how it started but at some point, he was losing weight seriously. Many started wondering what was going on. Some started proffering solutions, both medically and spiritually, while some others resorted to murmuring and gossiping.
Not until May 2015 when he had a seizure at home and ran out of breath. His wife, his maid and the security man rushed him to their hospital in Lekki.
The doctors battled to bring him back to life before he was later stabilized.
Upon stabilizing him, Julius and his wife immediately left for the United States of America. Houston to be precise, where arrangement had been made at the Park Plaza Hospital.
After a series of tests, two lumps were discovered in his brain! The lumps had been messing up his health and causing his incessant weight loss. Immediately, the Caucasian surgeons went to work, operating on him for about 4 hours on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, at the Park Plaza Hospital in Houston Texas, United States of America.
After been discharged, he rested in the US for sometime before returning home recently.
Currently putting things together for the 10th anniversary of his annual Crack Ya Ribs in London, the father of two (Zhara and Zadok) revealed that all through the time he was medically down, he was always thinking about what would become of his wife and children should anything go wrong.
“Onyeoma, I no go lie to you, na dem I just dey think about. But like I said earlier, it’s God at work. I want to thank everybody who supported me in one way or the other. Those that were praying for me and all that.”
I’m planning a thanksgiving where I will still tell the full story. But for now, I just want to thank God and my wife. Onyeoma! My wife tried. The day I had the seizure, she put her finger in my mouth and I bit it…All the vomit; the mess; she was the one brushing and bathing me on the bed and clearing and cleaning them. IB really, really tried for me”. A smile immediately erupted on the face of IB who was sitting adjacent us and also listening to her husband narrate his story. His two children who were also nearby immediately made for where we were sitting and started crawling all over us. And as if on cue, Julius quipped in an emotional voice: “Onyeoma, wetin for happen like say…” And he left it hanging there. I remembered I hadn’t had my breakfast then, having come straight from the church. I voiced this out and the wife arranged something for us to eat, and as we ate and discussed, Julius just kept thanking, appreciating and saluting God for the miracle He just did in his family, his life, his career and everything.
