Julius Agwu has addressed a number of issues regarding the troubles he had had in his career all through 2015.
In an exclusive interview with TVC, the ace comedian mentioned a number of things particularly the fact that the Nigerian entertainment industry is bedeviled by spiritual problems and treachery.
It is quite engaging and revealing. He goes on to state that he stopped getting invitations to perform at shows and at some point it felt like there was a spell on him.
Julius went on to say some major publicists refused to handle his brand at the time because he was going through a rough phase.
He mentioned Ayeni ‘Ayeni The Great’ Adekunle of Black House Media as one of those who turned him down during the tough times he faced.
“Ayeni The Great na my friend. I call Ayeni, I dey beg am. Ayeni no dey pick my calls,” he said.
He sums up his revelations saying: “People who stood by you when the times were rough, during your trials and tribulations, remember them.”
He talked about comedians and musicians he gave opportunities but he got no form of recognitions from.
Agwu recently survived a brain tumour following a successful operation in the US. The entire issue started in May after he had a seizure and passed out.
Speaking to Yes International Magazine on July 6 on what led to his eventual surgery in Houston, Julius said he couldn’t recall the exact cause of his illness.
The interview reads: “All he could recollect was that at some point, he went on and on losing serious weight, which got many people wondering. Some concerned ones started proffering solutions, both medically and spiritually, while others resorted to murmuring and gossiping.
“It went on and on until sometime in May when he had a seizure at home and while his wife, Ibiere, whom he lavished with so much thanks all through our stay for her love, care, understanding and support, battled to halt that, he ran out of breath. Almost lifeless. And with the likely consequences starring her in the face, Ibiere got their maid and the security man to assist her in getting him into one of their cars. And from there, they practically sprinted to their hospital in Lekki.Thank God the doctor was on call. He battled for hours with his team to ‘bring him back to life again’. And upon stabilizing him, Julius and his wife immediately left for the United States of America. Houston to be precise, where arrangement had been made at the Park Plaza Hospital. After a series of tests, two lumps were discovered in his brain! The lumps had been messing up his health and causing his incessant weight loss.”
He is married to Ibiere and the couple is blessed with kids.
