Nigerian musician, Ikechukwu Onunaku, has spoken out about his current health issues which have rendered him bedridden.
Ikechukwu shared his experiences during a Daddy Freeze Instagram Live session on Tuesday.
The singer claimed he is currently suffering from an illness called herniated disc and acute sciatica which have rendered his entire right side paralyzed.
He stated that the illness has kept him bedridden and he is currently using crutches.
When asked if he was still in Nigeria, Ikechuckwu said he left the country already to seek better medical care abroad after being dissatisfied with what he got.
He said, “Baba I get herniated disc and acute sciatica and it paralyzed my whole right side, lumbar 4 and 5. A whole me can you imagine, na bed wen I don dey since.
“Baba, if you see me, I’m not same person you knew before, the guy who does backflips left and right.
“To waka dey pain me. I no fit waka.
“I pulled it on the 17th in the morning, and instead of calming down, I went to a show I was booked for, the following day, I couldn’t get out of bed. After two more days of dealing with the pain, I had to rush to Evercare Hospital around 3 a.m.
“They put drips in both of my hands with painkillers, which only lasted a little bit, and I no won risk my life with Nigerian healthcare again, so I just got a ticket straight to Yankee.”
