He had thought the worse would happen, but God in his infinite mercies gave him a second chance to life.

Since then, Ace comedian, Julius Agwu, has been expressing his appreciation to God Almighty for sparing his life after undergoing brain surgery about four months ago.

In a recent interview with Channels Television last weekend, the comedian recounted the horrific experience that nearly took his life “Jumping all the hurdles and challenges of life, so many of us don't really know what is going on inside. Nobody carries signboard of ill-health. So, I never realized what was happening, I just noticed that at some point, I was loosing weight.

“Initially, I was working out trying to look shapely, because as soon as you clock 40 you begin to take some of those things seriously. I just noticed the over-work, stress and everything. In Nigeria, we really don't rest, we hustle and hustle, we just keep working but oyinbo (white men) will work for vacation and settle, you know, rest. But our own, we hustle and even when we die, we're still working as ancestors through consultations (Laughs).”

The rib cracker further explained that he was very busy at that period shooting his new TV series when he fainted and was rushed to the hospital.

Agwu said the tumour was a big one at the back of his head that was already like the size of a golf ball, full-grown and very big. But the good thing is that after it was removed, the doctors had to scan it to find out whether it was cancerous.

In conclusion, the proud father of two enjoined entertainers including his colleagues in the industry to take their health issues more seriously by undertaking regular medical check-up.

Meanwhile, the River State born multi-talent is currently recuperating in the United States and would return to the country this month for his Crack Ya Ribs show coming up in Abuja in October.
