All does not appear rosy, health-wise, for veteran Nollywood actor, Enebeli Elebuwa, as he is reportedly battling stroke, an illness that has seen him bedridden and incapacitated for months now.
The Delta State born actor, who has been in the film industry for over 30 years, has received treatment for the condition at various hospitals, including lately, the Military Hospital at Yaba, Lagos, but does not appear to be getting any better.
In a bid to improve his condition, the actor is reportedly receiving alternative medical treatment using herbs.
A source who spoke to NET reporter disclosed that the actor has made little progress, but is yet to gain his former self.
‘My brother, it’s sad, especially since he was a very active person. He was responding to treatment the last time I saw him, but not as one hoped. I know all is being done to make sure he is up and about, and people are rallying round him too. I hope he recovers and we are all praying for him’, he stated.
Calls and text messages sent to Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president, Segun Arinze, who, among others, have shown support to Mr. Elebuwa’s cause during his ordeal, were not immediately responded to.
Enebeli Elebuwa is a known face in the Nigerian movie industry, which he joined in 1994, but has been in the film industry long before that, with his first recorded effort in the 1974 Sanya Dosunmu produced film, ‘Dinner with the Devil’.
