Ailing Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has reassured her fans that there is no cause for alarm over her health status.
The actress, who has been sick for a while owing to complications from a fibroid operation she underwent in India in April, made the appeal in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
She also denied rumours that she was battling cancer and asked her fans not to contribute money on her behalf.
She wrote, “I am grateful to everyone who has shown me love and encouragement at this point in my life. May God bless you all. I want to be known as a positive soul and not a sad one, so I plead to you all not to donate any money on my behalf to anyone. I see people already trying to make money out of it so kindly don’t.
“And please I am not dying, so no need for the hashtags. You all are awesome and am covered. If I don’t ask for money myself, then it’s not from me. I have wonderful people around me. Kindly stop the lies. I want this smile to be permanent and so shall it be Amin.”
During the weekend, Abubakar’s professional colleague, actress, Tonto Dikeh, posted a picture of her ailing friend and urged her fans to please pray for her quick recovery adding that she was with her and will personally see to her well-being.
