Nigerian actor and producer, popular known for his roles in Yankee Hustle has taken to social media to recount how he endured excruciating pain for 2 years.

Post-surgery I feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life. I want to say a special thank you to my wife for the love and care, to my fam & friends for their prayers and support, to my many brand partners and employers for their patience and understanding, and to the best surgeon ever, Dr Coker. His entire medical team at Lagoon Hospital I say a big thank you. Grateful to God for the road to divine recovery!”
