After suffering a stroke in 2015, actor Ernest Asuzu later got was healed by Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin of the Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, Warri, Delta State. He was also given a new SUV and N1.5m.
But Asuzu told Sunday Scoop, “When I was down with a stroke, my wife was the only one who didn’t forsake me. It was a terrible situation because I did not work for three years, yet I was spending money. I must confess that I was afraid that my wife would leave me at that time because of my situation. Though the illness was serious, it didn’t affect my sex life. Naturally, I am hyperactive in bed and I don’t joke with sex. I have been married officially for five years.”
According to Ernest, who abandoned him when he was sick, now call him for movie roles.
He stated, “Since I survived the stroke, it has not been easy for me but I am working now. I went for a shoot some days ago.
“When I had a stroke, I was abandoned by friends but all the people who abandoned me then are calling me for jobs now. We do not help each other in Nollywood. If a person has a stroke or any other illness, he should not be left alone. I was angry at my colleagues because they didn’t help me when I needed them.
“I was truly healed and I thank God for sparing my life. I loved to dance, but I cannot do that anymore. When I have recovered fully, I would be able to do some of the things I was doing before. After all, there was a time that I couldn’t walk or talk well.”
