I Died, Woke Up On The Way To Mortuary – Julius Agwu

Published

on

Ace comedian, Julius Agwu has disclosed that if not for God’s mercies on his life, he would have been dead by now. In a recent interview, the Rivers State born humour merchant said he had died but woke up when he was being conveyed to the mortuary.
In what seems like a Nollywood movie, the comedian said that while he was unconscious, he had an encounter with some people he knew had died and he would have remained dead if not for his father who had died about 12 years ago, “he was the one that came and chased me back to the land of the living”.
He said: “The truth is that I would not have been alive if not for God, I died and woke up, I literally died and woke up, I say that authoritatively because I know I had an encounter with people that I know had died during that period. I saw my father who died 12 years ago, he was the one that came and chased me back to the world because it was not my time. I died here in Nigeria but woke up when they were taking me to mortuary that was the first time I had a seizure in my house but my wife stood by me, God will keep on blessing my wife”.
“I believe that God gave me my wife and I always thank him for that” I bless God that she stayed despite everything that has happened to me. They were taking me to the mortuary but to God be the glory, my hand moved and that was the point they returned me to the hospital, where I am today”.
The encounter made me realise that there is nothing as good as rest, it is very important to sleep, I work so hard and believe that of all comedians in Nigeria, I work harder, I have ‘Crack Ya Rib’, Laugh for Christ Sake and Festival of Love.
Speaking for the first time since his second visit to the hospital over the tumours in his brain, he said he had relapsed because he did not rest properly after his first surgery, “what happened was that they did an MRI Scan and they detected that I had two growths, they removed a tumour from my back which was the size of a golf ball and the other tumour was close to my brain”.
“They advised me that if they touched this other tumour, it could be fatal. They gave me drugs to shrink the tumour, but I did not rest well and that is why it came back last year. I did not rest at all after my surgery in America. I resumed doing my shows, I thank God for everything, the truth is that I am back and better, I just want to use this opportunity to tell the people that God is great and this is a time we should all reflect on our lives”.
“ I would not lie to you, things are not easy in the country and many people are running away from Nigeria. Crack Ya Ribs was the first show to be held in London, after that everybody started taking their shows there. I thank God that Crack Ya Ribs paved way for other shows”, said Agwu.

Nigerian Female Celebrities Are Not Prostitutes -Movie Producer

Published

on

Nigerian movie producer, Samuel Olatunji, popularly known as Bigsam has debunked the idea that successful women in the entertainment industry earn their money through questionable means.
The Public Relations expert took to his Instagram page yesterday to condemn Nollywood actress, Nnaji Charity, who in her Instagram stories wrote that “being a female celebrity in Nigeria is more like an advanced prostitution.”(sic)
“To say her post is uncharitable to women is stating the obvious. What is more uncharitable is the fact that she is a woman (that, I believe because these days, you never can tell), “ the producer said.
He added, “What you are implying is that all these successful female celebrities, both in entertainment and outside entertainment are prostitutes, got to where they are, or are maintaining what they are by prostitution? Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Naming celebrities such as Linda Ikeji, Toyin Abraham, Funke Akindele-Bello, and Ini Edo, the Dear Affy producer attested to lucrative means by which several female celebrities he has worked with, make their money.
He said, “There was a time someone called me to say Linda Ikeji must be doing fraud or advanced prostitution to make the kind of money she has, that year, Linda was charging 50k per post (now it is 150k). I asked the person to open the blog and we did counting of sponsored post for that day as at 6pm, Linda has done about 20 sponsored posts. That year, Linda was raking in about 2 million daily. Before Covid and after, Toyin Abraham was making over 5 million monthly.
“About 10 years ago, we struck a major deal for Ini Edo, my first cut in the money was over 1.5m. Till date, Ini is making legitimate money quietly and in quick succession to have warranted talk that she’s the richest actress in Nigeria. About two or three years ago, Funke Akindele Bello made over 1 million USD from just one of her projects.”(sic)
Also mentioning the likes of Kemi Adetiba, Uche Jumbo, and Lizzy Jay, Bigsam said, “If you see all these women living life and living well, don’t let your limited brain deceive you that they only make it by gracing beds of powerful men (some of these men actually live off them).”
“Women are doing well and it is possible for the upcoming one to do better without turning to prostitution,” he continued.
He further encouraged ladies to ignore the claims by Nnaji as “she doesn’t know what she’s saying.”
