Nollywood actor Chidi Mokeme has opened up on why he has been away from acting. In an Interview with Runbin’ Minds, he said he has been battling with Bell’s Palsy .
“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.
“The doctor said it was incurable. They had no cure because they didn’t know what causes it,” he said.
He also said since he could not act with an ill face, he had to focus on his business while praying 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.
