Daba who travelled to the United Kingdom in 2017 for the treatment of Leukaemia and Prostate cancer returned to Nigeria a few weeks after with reports that his situation was not as bad as feared. The ‘Cock Crow at Dawn’ star was recently admitted at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital for what those close to him said was chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Otedola’s statement reads

“I heard about Mr. Sadiq Daba’s health condition when it was brought to my attention through an online news story I read two days ago. I was saddened to hear that he had taken ill again after overcoming his challenges from prostate cancer just two years ago.

“From the news report, I gathered that he was rushed to the Emergency unit of LUTH after being diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). I must say that even though I don’t know Mr. Daba personally, he is a face I am familiar with through the old TV drama production ‘Cock Crow at Dawn’ which I used to watch while growing up.

“I was moved by a sense of nostalgia and concern when I read of his medical situation recently and decided to take over his medical bills. He has been visited and arrangements are being made to support him.

In other climes, the likes of Sadiq Daba and other such actors who more or less paved the way for the entertainment industry and the Nollywood industry in Nigeria (which is touted as the 3rd largest movie industry in the world) would be celebrated as Icons and due recognition would be accorded to them.

“For me, taking care of Sadiq’s medical expenses is my little way of showing appreciation and gratitude for the good memories he created for me and others in the past.”

Recall that in April this year, the billionaire picked up the medical bills of former Super Eagles’ coach, Christian Chukwu, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Bovi shares his son’s scary birth story as he turns 10

Nigerian Ace stand up comedian Bovi and father of three recently took to social media to celebrate his eldest son as he turns 10.

The proud father wrote a Lovely and Hilarious speech about his son and wishes.

Bovi Ugboma wrote in his own word:

Chukwu Onye ebere the hands are together” the nurse screamed in panic as she stared down the vagina. Ten years ago, my sons first day on earth seemed destined to be his last. At a private hospital in Ogba, the nurses operated in panic mode rather than urgency. The doctor on duty, I would later find out, was in his office but refused to come out. He asked the nurses to handle the delivery. @krisasimonye was screaming in pains. The umbilical cord was around the babies neck.

She wanted to push so bad. But the nurses realized that one of the pieces of equipment they were meant to use wasn’t in the tray. A nurse dashed out to go get it. @krisasimonye screamed in anguish “why are you doing this to me”. They had insisted earlier that it was false labor. She was sure it wasn’t. One of them decided to check again and behold it was time. And they weren’t ready. They actually told her to hold on when all she wanted to do was push. Eventually David was born. Swollen all over. Eyes round and shut like a corpse. Still. Lifeless. Numb. Ugly.

They raised him up, turned him upside down and started to slap his butt. Time paused. Silence. Sound. Cry. Breath. Life. He had arrived. I was hurt that the first thing my first fruit had to do was fight to come to life. But I took solace in the fact that he won his first of many battles. Fast forward to hours later and the doctor comes to our room to felicitate with us. He met a blank cold stare from us. And I cannot forget his stupid unprofessional words “I’m so sorry. I got info that one of my good friends died. I just couldn’t gather myself to come. I was just dazed in my office”. The words of a trained doctor. Anyway, here we are today, ten years later. Happy birthday to my son, David Abovi Ugboma jr.’

Popular Nigerian Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo who seems not to have been lucky in her past relationships recently took to social media to share how she miss the taste of true Marriage.

The Actress who debunked claim of ever being married in the interview with New Telegraph, disclosed that she will love to have a complete family with a man she loves wholeheartedly and also have more children.

The Nollywood actress wrote in her own words,

“I have never been married and I will love to experience what true marriage feels like. I would love to have a complete f a m i l y with a m a n I love wholeheartedly. And have more Children. I will love to have two more children by God’s grace. I already have one as a Single Mum. If it pleases God I want two more with a man who loves me.”

Recall she once shared a nude photo on her birthday which got social media buzzing, Here was what she had to say about it

I have been in this entertainment industry for over a decade, and if you follow my brand you will see that I am not one to do what others do. I am in my own lane. I set my own trends, from my hair to my appearance, to my Personality. I can never copy anyone. People copy me. I set trends and they follow. I don’t follow trends.
So it’s absurd to say I did my nude photo shoot because others did it. Please go back and check the dates, you will see I gave the others mind to feel comfortable in their bodies.

I did it first and they followed suit. My brand is about strength and courage, will power to be yourself and express yourself freely, especially women who are insecure about themselves due to fear the society has infringed in them. I give hope to the hopeless and a voice to the Mute! Speak your truth! It is after all your truth!”
