Highlife Musician, Anokye Supremo, is fighting for his life at the Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur in India after undergoing surgery to remove a tumour in his head.
According to reports from KOFI TV, the artiste has been in a coma for some days since the operation, with the Surgeons hoping he revives as soon as possible.
The artiste, formerly known as Daddy Lumba Jr., was diagnosed with the ailment when he started experiencing a severe headache which he thought was a migraine.
Upon a visit to the hospital, he was told it was a tumour. He began to feel pains in his left eye which later led to blindness in the same eye.
In an interview with Citinewsroom he said, “It started in October and I thought it was a migraine. I went to the hospital and was told I had a tumour in my head which has caused an enlargement in my left eye,” he said.
Surgeons at the Rabindranath Tagore International, explaining the gravity of the situation, described the tumour as an aggressive one and could be cancerous.
“He has a very large tumour involving his eyes. He had no vision and we operated on his eyes. We have done our works and found a large tumour which can, unfortunately, be a cancerous tumour. He is still in the ventilator. And we hope he comes out.” The Surgeon said.
Prior to his trip to India for the surgery, Doctors said it will take him about GHC10, 000 to have a surgery done on the tumour. A GoFund has however been set to assist with the medical bills.
