Azuka Ogujiuba is not new to drama and scandals. She has been in the eye of the storm many times for doing her job as a journalist and entertainment reporter. At one time, Tonto Dikeh cursed her for saying she(Tonto) lied against her ex husband Churchill during their separation saga.
But Azuka Ogujiuba is not one to be fazed by such things. She hasn’t stopped doing what she loves as well as having fun while at it too. Today is her birthday and she took time to reflect on life especially when she had a close shave with death last year.
Read her post below:
@Zukiliciouz “Another lovely 13th of April, HBD 2 me. I am grateful to the big lion of my little but great kingdom.
Recently, l had a close shave with death. I love travelling to any part of the continent the plane can take me. This guilty pleasure of mine took a hard toll on my life.
I travelled to L.A. for 3 days, got back hopped into the next flight to Dubai, spent some days in Dubai and then off to the UK.
2 days after l arrived the UK l passed out in the loo while doing no 1. I was revived. I went to the bathroom to have my bath, l passed out again and this time around my friend insisted on calling the ambulance before the conversation was over we heard the ambulance siren blasting in the neighbourhood. I was asked if l can walk to the ambulance?
I said l can but before l could take 2 steps l passed out again but this time when l was revived l found myself strapped to the stretcher with all kinds of wires on my body and the nurses struggling to keep me alive and at the same time chatting with me.
All this while l thought of my daughter and l wanted to speak with @kateimafidon @realcolours82, @tybello, @sylmoe, and @africanprince007. I just wanted to plead with them to take care of my daughter because l know they can contribute money amongst themselves and send her to school. They were trusted, tried and reliable friends.
The ambulance arrived The Queen Elizabeth hospital near Lewisham.
I was so weak and struggled to stay alive but then l made this my prayer point ‘I shall not die but live to declare the powerful work of God’ l asked the cute and handsome Dr. giving me injections on my belly if l was going to make it?
I was admitted on the 12th August and discharged 19th August.
The hospital bill came and that of my 6 months injection on my belly was quiet alarming but l was grateful l survived it. I had deep vein thrombosis and the blood clotted in my lungs. I survived it because l was told by some close friends who are doctors that if it happened in Naija that l will not survive it. And this death scare slowed my frequent trips. And that’s why lam so grateful 4 another birthday and for every day.
Happy Birthday Azuka Ogujiuba. Many happy returns and take care of your health.
