BREAKING: I’ve been battling brain disease — Nollywood actress, Bisola Badmus

The Yoruba Nollywood actress Bisola Badmus disclosed that she is suffering from encephalopathy, a neurological condition.

She made this revelation on Tuesday in a post on her official Instagram account, @officialbisolabadmus.

Encephalopathy is the medical term for brain injury or disease. It occurs when your body experiences a change that impacts your brain or when there is a change in the way your brain functions. According to Webmd, those modifications result in a changed mental state that leaves you perplexed and unable to behave normally.

Badmus revealed that she had been fighting the condition for more than a year.

For “over a year now I have been battling with health issues (Encephalopathy). I cannot even wish my enemy such illness. It was a tough one indeed that made me stay away from social media,” part of the post read.

She also disclosed the death of her mother during the trying time.

Badmus added, “In between, I lost my precious mother. Unquestionable God, I thank you for everything, particularly for me to witness yet another birthday.”

She, however, appreciates family members, friends, colleagues in the industry, and loved ones for standing by her.

“I will be an ungrateful soul if I fail to appreciate my family and friends, colleagues in the industry, business associates, and the brands I represent for standing by me during the challenging period. My colleagues in the movie industry and business associates, the brands I represent, thank you all once,” the post further read.
