Actor, Chidi Mokeme reveals he was away from the movie scene for a while because he was battling Bell’s Palsy
Chidi Mokeme revealed that he was fighting Bell’s Palsy, and this forced him to stay clear of the movie scenes.
The actor said that one side of his face was affected by the disease.
“It comes like a stroke and sort of affects one side of your face and gives your face a droop,” he explained during an interview on Channels TV’s Rubbin’ Minds.
He also said that the doctor had told him that it was incurable.
“The doctor said it was incurable. They had no cure because they didn’t know what causes it,” he said.
As a result, he had to leave the movie scene to focus on his business while he hoped to get better.
Bell’s Palsy is a condition that causes sudden weakness in the muscles on one side of the face. In most cases, the weakness is temporary and significantly improves over weeks. Bell’s palsy may be a reaction to a viral infection. It rarely occurs more than once.
