The apprehension over the health of top comedian, Julius Agwu, has been cleared by the comedian’s wife, Ebiere. Signs of the fact that all may not have been well emerged when he failed to appear for his recent show, Crack your Ribs in London and this fueled speculations in the media of a possible health challenge, especially, after the ace comedian had undergone a brain surgery last year. The wife had posted a clarification on Instagram, stating the true position of her husband’s health. Her words are captured below.
“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.
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 can do! Ephesians 6v8.
Thanks and God bless you all
Julius is currently receiving treatment in a London hospital and colleagues and fans have called out to Nigerians to pray for the ailing comedian as they wish him quick recovery.
