I thought I would die- Leo Mezie shares his survival story
By Rita Chioma
Handsome, Nollywood actor, Leo Mezie has shared the story of his miraculous recovery from a Kidney ailment he suffered few months ago.
The movie star said his rapid recovery has compelled him to believe Jesus Christ more than he previously did. “I had thought that I would die,” Mezie told Allure Vanguard during a press briefing held on Tuesday at Ojez Bar, Surulere, Lagos.
“I don’t know why Jesus chose to give me a second chance, but I believe it’s to serve him, and this time around in everything I do.
At a point, I was ready to die. I had lost all hopes and was already making plans to return to the village, but God gave me a second chance to life, so that I can win more souls for him with my testimony. We had concluded plans for a kidney transplant; donor’s treatment, medical bills, compensation and lots more, but God turned my case around.
After series of prayer, the kidneys that were diagnosed and confirmed damaged began to pick up and heal. At the long run, I didn’t have to go through any transplant; the doctors were amazed at the sudden transformation, which could be done by only God,” he said.
The actor also said he had a clergy, Apostle Suleiman Johnson to thank for footing his medical and travel expenses to the United Kingdom health facility, where he had hope to do a transplant. He also sent out his appreciation to his wife, family members, fans, colleagues, as well as the media for standing by him throughout the trying times.
“My biggest appreciation is to the Almighty God. Despite my sins and shortcomings, he still found me worthy to receive his mercy. Then to Apostle Johnson. The man of God who gave me money and took care of all my medical bills. I’d also like to thank my wife, who stood by me in this challenging time despite all odds. I owe my life to you. To my colleagues, fans and the media, God bless you all,” he added.
