Doctor says I have five years to live – Actress Kemi Afolabi opens up


Popular Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi, has opened up that her doctor told her that she only has five years to live as she is suffering from an ‘incurable’ ailment.

The movie star in an interview with Chude Jideonwo revealed that she was diagnosed with lupus.

According to her, she had lived just one year after the doctor’s pronouncement, as she tearfully noted that she didn’t know how much she had left.

Afolabi quoted her doctor as saying, “Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to five years.”

Talking about the sickness, she said, “I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life.”

She noted that she paid N1.2m on a treatment yet it did not work as she continually cried in pain.

InsightMedia had earlier reported that the Actress said she had prepared her Will as she was not certain of living again.

She detailed that she wrote her Will and booked a space with a funeral ground after her diagnosis.
