Chidi Mokeme confesses, “I took a break from the industry because I had Bell’s palsy.” [Video]
Nollywood actor Chidi Mokeme has shared his reasons for taking a vacation from the film business.
According to Kemi Filani, the renowned actor has been out of the public eye and the movie business for some time.
Chidi Mokeme disclosed that he was dealing with Bell’s palsy in an interview with Channels Television.
It’s possible that a viral infection caused Bell’s palsy. Rarely does it happen more than once. It is a sudden weakness in the muscles on one half of the face.
Likening the infection to stroke, Chidi revealed that it affected one side of his face, and as an actor, he couldn’t make public appearance.
Doctors’ claims that the virus was incurable and untreatable made matters worse.
“I have been off the scene for a while after we did the promotional tour for 76. Before that when we were preparing to go to the UK on a trip for British International Film Festival. I came down with something called Bell’s Palsy. It comes like a stroke and affects one side of your face and this was something the doctor said was incurable they didn’t know what caused it and how to treat it.
As an actor you can imagine what I was going through”.
