Veteran Nollywood actor Adebayo Salami, popularly known as Oga Bello, recently opened up about his ongoing battle with hypertension, a condition he has been living with for over four decades.
In a social media post, he shared a screenshot from his interview with Tribune Nigeria where he sought God’s grace to enjoy good health in the remaining chapters of his life.
Oga Bello revealed that he has been battling hypertension since the age of 28. He expressed gratitude for being alive and in relatively good health, despite the challenges posed by hypertension.
His post read: “At this age, I still have the ability to produce and act in movies. In fact, I just finished producing my movie. It is a fact that you can’t attain this age and not nurse one ailment or the other. I have been battling with hypertension for more than 40 years and I have lived with it. To God be the glory, I am still alive and well. I will continue to pray to God for grace to live the rest of my life in good health and happiness.”
He also noted that, despite dealing with hypertension since the age of 28, he was blessed with parents who lived well beyond 100 years, despite sharing this condition.
