Immediately, na so I fall. Ah ah. Na so them rush me, pour water for my face and everything, I no fit breathe. Step just to climb upstairs go greet bros na how I no fit breathe again, I just fall. As I reach back house, I go hospital say “see wetin happen to me oh”. They said you need to be working out, that my blood vessels dey narrow, that I still get cholesterol problem, fat too dey my body, come pack drugs give me, say make I dey waka, make I dey exercise, make I dey mind wetin I dey chop. I still try do work out that period, the thing go reduce small, sometimes e go come back again because the discipline no dey to take chop right. 2020 come happen, pandemic. I started working out, sometimes I go chop better food, sometimes I go chop yeye food, because the discipline no dey. Na so I do work out, do do do, chop vegetable, small time again, I go swallow akpu, pounded yam, everything. It got to a point I became so sick, they come admit me for hospital.
