An aide to Muyiwa Ademola, a Yoruba actor, has reacted to a photo of her principal on a sickbed, saying his illness is not life-threatening.
On Sunday, Ademola had taken to his Instagram page to post a photo that showed him lying on the hospital bed with a drip line running through his arm.
“Never posted anything like this before but this is necessary because of the numerous commitments ahead,” he had written wrote.
This had prompted concerns among his fans, some of whom took to the comment section to register their worries about his health status.
Speaking with Punch on Monday, Wuraola, Ademola’s aide, said the actor’s illness isn’t life-threatening but as a result of stress.
“He is just a little bit ill, it is nothing serious. He is just stressed. The illness is stress-related because all he does is to work. He needs the rest so it is not as if it is anything serious,” the aide was quoted as saying.
“You know if you work round the clock and you do not rest, you can break down. It is not as if it is something serious. He is still resting in the hospital.
“He is on bed rest because that is the only way we can get him to rest that is why he is in the hospital. We do not know when he will be discharged but we will prefer if he is there for a while.
“It is nothing serious but we know he will not rest when he gets home. He is always on his phone or doing one thing or the other. He has to stay there for at least a week in order to get his strength back.
“It is nothing life-threatening, it is just the normal stress-related sickness. It is not life-threatening. He hardly breaks down; he is not the type that breaks down. He is a workaholic.”
Ademola began his acting career in 1991. Four years later, he produced his first-ever written script into a movie titled ‘Asise’ (meaning blunder). Since then, he has produced, directed, and featured in several Yoruba films.
