Fancy Acholonu, the ex-fiancée to Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo, has taken to social media to recount her near-death experience after a terrible car accident.
Recall that Fancy and Alex were engaged but later called off the marriage ceremony days before the event scheduled to hold on November 2021.
In the lengthy post shared on Instagram, Fancy said she had a bad car accident a few months ago and has been having a lot of self-reflection on her life as her birthday approaches.
Fancy said she was driving home from work on the freeway and someone crashed into her.
She further explained that she reflected on how her life would have ended at that moment after gaining consciousness in an ambulance.
She wrote: “I was in a bad car accident a few months ago and as my birthday is approaching I’ve been doing a lot of self-reflection on my life. I was driving home from work on the freeway and someone crashed into me.
“When I gained consciousness in the ambulance I thought to myself wow, is this how i would leave this earth? Just like that? In that moment I realized that life is short, precious and beyond unpredictable. It can be taken away from you in an instant. I’m not someone who publicly shares my struggles often I get nervous being open and vulnerable, but I am working on that at my own pace.
“I’ve had a pretty traumatic year and I know we all go through things but sometimes sharing can help someone else realize nobody’s life is perfect so we should be grateful for what we have and embrace every moment. Thankfully with the best doctors and physical therapist I’m healing through it all but the trauma of the collision has caused me severe anxiety. I thank God for my life, it’s the most precious gift”.
