Nollywood actress speaks on one-year battle with brain disease


Nollywood Yoruba actress Bisola Badmus recently shared her struggle with “encephalopathy,” a brain disease, in an Instagram post.

Encephalopathy is a dysfunction or disease affecting the brain and is characterised by a range of neurological symptoms that can include cognitive dysfunction, altered consciousness, and changes in behaviour.

According to her post on Tuesday, she has been contending with the illness for over a year, Badmus said she dealt with the challenges of a condition that alters mental states, causing confusion and a departure from one’s usual demeanour.

“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,” her Instagram post read.
