Some weeks ago, the news of Nigerian rapper Lord of Ajasa’s illness was revealed by his colleague Alariwo of Africa. The Yoruba rapper has now revealed more details regarding his medical travails.
It will be recalled that Legit.ng had previously reported a story where the rapper had surfaced in an Instagram post by his colleague. In the report, it was revealed that the rapper was critically ill and was in need of financial assistance to undergo a peptic ulcer operation.
The sensational rapper has now disclosed in a new interview with Sunday scoop how fans and fellow colleagues from the industry had rallied round to support him financially.
He said that was able to transfer to a better health care facility following the assistance he received. He said: “Right now, I am at a private hospital in Ikeja (Lagos). I wasn’t getting proper care at the General Hospital Ikorodu, Lagos, and since people have begun to support me, I can now afford to get treated at a better hospital.”
The rapper went on to mention some names of fellow musicians that had assisted him in one way or the other. He claimed there were more people, but he could not mention all the names.
He said: “I cannot mention the names of all the people who have assisted me because they are very many. However, some that I can mention are Gbenga Adeyinka, Alariwo, Jah Bless, Ice K (of Artquake), 9ice, Olamide, among others. Though some people are saying the support is not enough but it is whatever they have that they would give me. All the funds I’ve got have not been able to take care of all my bills. There are so many fans that have assisted as well; people that I don’t even know. I really appreciate the outpouring of love.”

The Yoruba rap pioneer also went ahead to give a recount of how the whole experience with his health had started. According to him, it started on January 1st, 2018, after he had noticed a sharp pain in his body that had rendered him immobile.
Ajasa said: “I started feeling the pain on January 1 and I thought it was the usual occurrence because I had been experiencing such pain for some time. Usually, the pain would just come and go. But this time, it lasted longer. Suddenly, I could not even stand or walk. Then, on the first Sunday of January, I was rushed to the hospital; I nearly collapsed. I didn’t even know whether I was dead or alive. I vomited a lot and was in so much pain. However, I thank God that I am better now. For the two weeks that I was at the General Hospital, I couldn’t eat or drink. I was fed intravenously.”
He continued to reveal that the condition got worse because of his negligence. He said: "I was diagnosed with peptic ulcer and I must confess that it was partly due to my carelessness. I had been having the symptoms for a while but I thought it was just normal pain. My wife usually takes care of me and prepares food for me at all times. But during the December period, I attended a lot of shows; so, I wasn’t at home. I guess that was what triggered the attack.”
We wish the rapper a speedy recovery and hope that he would be back on his feet as soon as possible.
