Julius Agwu’s wife, Mrs. Ibere Agwu, has dismissed speculation the star comedian’s brain tumour problem relapsed during his comedy show, Crack Your Ribs in London.
Mrs. Agwu in a message she released allayed fears over Julius Agwu’s health following rumours that he collapsed on stage just as photo of him in intensive care surfaced online.
Her statement reads, “let me also use this medium to defuse 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 Carnival. By the grace of GOD Julius is doing well and receiving adequate care.
“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. As you continue to keep him in your prayers, it is our sincere prayer that God will do for you what no man do! Ephesians 6v8. Thanks and God bless you all. Ibiere Agwu.”
