While speaking in an exclusive interview with Inspaya alongside his wife and sister, 43-year-old Nigerian comedian, actor and singer, Julius Agwu, opened up in detail about his terrifying brain tumour experience.

Julius revealed how he began to suffer memory loss and several seizures shortly after shooting the TV series 'The Vendor'. “All I remember was I woke up in the hospital and heard the story of my being in coma. I lost my memory.” he said.

Julius’ wife, Ibiere and his sister, Theresa also revealed that the incident got so bad to a point where he stopped moving and was almost taken to the mortuary. “So now I am going to be a widow, how do I manage with these children?” Ibiere stated.

“The first seizure, I was actually in the room with him when it started. “I was talking to him and all of a sudden he is looking up to. I called the doctor on our way to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, the seizure came again, and I started praying.”

It wasn’t until after a trip to an American hospital, that Julius discovered he had three tumours in his brain with one that was the size of a gulf ball.

Julius, who had a successful surgery in the US said, “What I remember was the fact that I woke up in the hospital and then I heard the story of my being in coma. I lost my memory. The MRI scan revealed that I had three tumours in my brain."

He said he actually contemplated committing suicide one day.

“I started looking for my property documents to give to my wife. One day when they were not home, I almost committed suicide,” Julius stated in the interview.
