Indigenous rapper, Lord of Ajasa, has taken time to appreciate the Nigerian music artistes who have contributed to his recovery process after he last week solicited for funds to help him have a surgery that will make him get better after being diagnosed with peptic ulcer.
Punch Newspaper met with Ajasa for an interview and he took the opportunity to thank the music stars that contributed to his rehabilitation process. He said,
“Right now, I am at a private hospital in Ikeja (Lagos). I wasn’t getting proper care at the General Hospital Ikorodu, Lagos, and since people have begun to support me, I can now afford to get treated at a better hospital. I cannot mention the names of all the people who have assisted me because they are very many.
“However, some that I can mention are Gbenga Adeyinka, Alariwo, Jah Bless, Ice K (of Artquake), 9ice, Olamide, among others. Though some people are saying the support is not enough but it is whatever they have that they would give me. All the funds I’ve got have not been able to take care of all my bills. There are so many fans that have assisted as well; people that I don’t even know. I really appreciate the outpouring of love.”
He also talked about the pain he enountered, Ajasa said, “I was supposed to undergo surgery but the doctor said I’m improving; so, I may no longer need it. According to them, I have been responding well to treatment and I am getting much better. I started feeling the pain on January 1 and I thought it was the usual occurrence because I had been experiencing such pain for some time. Usually, the pain would just come and go. But this time, it lasted longer. Suddenly, I could not even stand or walk. Then, on the first Sunday of January, I was rushed to the hospital; I nearly collapsed. I didn’t even know whether I was dead or alive.”
