Charley Boy gets candid about his recent battle with prostate cancer.
He discussed his experience battling cancer and how he “cheated death” this year in an Instagram post.
“Many things bin happen dis year 2023. The good, the bad and the ugly. But most importantly, I cheated death for something wey no suppose kill us but has killed many.
Am a Prostate Cancer Survivor. God, am grateful. I know say dis year remain small but still by his Grace, me and everybody reading dis, shall see 2024. I seee!,” the caption read.
However the Nwata Miss singer is seen in the released video being wheeled by medical personnel into an elevator while lying in a hospital bed. Messages of encouragement and prayers were sent in his comment section by his fans and followers.
Not for the first time, the seasoned musician has been transparent about his fight against cancer. In an interview with Punch Newspapers in May 2023, he discussed how he was able to find the correct doctors.
“I do not hide myself,” he declared. When anything annoys me, I’ll let everyone know by shouting. Partly solved is a problem half shared. I came to the conclusion that I needed to take action after talking to others who had gone through it.
In actuality, the issue arose three years ago. In London, United Kingdom, I met a Nigerian physician who specializes in treating the condition after I sought medical attention. I had to perform the procedure here after he informed me that he would travel to Nigeria. I give God thanks it was a success. But I’m still getting better.
In an interview with Arise TV back in September, he stated that men should be willing to seek treatment for prostate cancer. He has also supported getting screened for the disease.
