News of the sudden illness of popular comedian, Julius Agwu, hit the net days ago, when he was hospitalised hours before his popular Crack Your Ribs Comedy Concert.
Since he returned to the country after his brain surgery over a year ago, Julius has been busy with various shows both within and outside the country and this to an extent led to his stress related breakdown of which he had to be taken to Lewisham hospital in London.
His ever caring wife, Ibiere Agwu, has come out to thank everyone who have remembered her family in prayers as she confirms that the comedian’s health is stable.
According to her, “THANK YOU ALL!!! On behalf of my husband Julius Agwu, my children Zahra and Zadok and the entire Reel Laif Entertainment family, I say a big THANK YOU to all that have wished us well; prayed for us and shown concern during the past 96 hours. We thank God for his faithfulness and his restoration power.
“Let me also use this medium to diffuse the fears created by some media outlets that had good intentions but used old pictures from Julius’ May 2015 craniotomy, and many people mistook it for his current situation. The pictures displayed on social media in the past 72 hours are old pictures and do not correctly represent his current situation.”
She further added that “Julius was admitted due to stress-related issues that necessitated proper rest and rehabilitation. As many of you may already know, he had several shows lined up in the UK during the Nothing hill Carnivals. By the grace of GOD Julius is doing well and receiving adequate care. As you continue to keep him in your prayers, it is our sincere prayer that God will do for you what no man do!”
