For the first time since his recovery, Julius Agwu and his family have opened up in details on the comedian’s terrifying brain tumour experience.
Speaking exclusively to Inspaya, a Christian programme on Dove TV, the 43-year-old comedian revealed how he began to suffer memory loss and several seizures shortly after shooting the TV series, ‘The Vendor.’
He said, “All I remember was I woke up in the hospital and heard the story of my being in coma. I lost my memory.”
Julius’ wife, Ibiere and his sister Theresa also shared that the medical condition got so bad to a point where he stopped breathing and was almost taken to the mortuary.
His wife reminisced, “So now I am going to be a widow, how I manage with these children? These were my thoughts at the time.”
It wasn’t until after a trip to an American hospital, that Julius discovered he had three tumours in his brain with one that was the size of a gulf ball.
He recalled, “I started looking for my property documents to give to my wife. One day when they were not home, I almost committed suicide.”
Following his successful surgery at the Park Plaza Hospital in Houston, America in 2015, the comedian decided to drop a thanksgiving song entitled ‘Second Chance’ with a vow glorify God on all his platforms.
Last year, the father of two was hospitalized in London for stress-related issues however he has since recovered and assured his fans that he is hale and hearty.
