Dr Chinonso Egemba, often known as Aproko Doctor, is a well-known influencer in Nigeria. He just revealed that he is battling a brain tumour.

On Monday, he posted a video to his Facebook where he made the announcement.

The famous physician wrote in the video’s description, “In December of 2022, I was fighting for my life. I went blind in one eye on the 3rd of December 2022 and on the 5th, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour.”

He said in the video, “One thing to understand is that health issues can happen to you regardless of who you are, including me.

“For the past three or two weeks, I have been fighting for my life. Some of you have no idea. I was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a brain tumour, and I had no idea I would be sharing my story.

“Here I am sitting on this seat sharing my own story about how I had a tumour in my brain. It was so bad that I couldn’t read out of my phone anymore to the point where this eye, I couldn’t read with it and it was also closing. They said it is a Craniopharyngioma and we need to do surgery to remove it.”

Egemba has utilised his online video channels to educate viewers about many aspects of health and how they can be improved through lifestyle adjustments over the years.

In addition, he serves as the head of the non-profit organisation 100kClub, which provides medical aid to people in Nigeria at no cost to them.

In June 2020, Egemba tied the knot with another social media influencer, Chiamaka Nwakalor (Chef Amaka).
