Nigerian actor and philanthropist, Williams Uchemba has thanked God for saving his life after he was down with an illness for 2 weeks.
The actor who doubles as an online comedian, made his heartfelt appreciation on his official Instagram page yesterday.
Narrating how it all happened, the actor said he became too busy at the detriment of his own health. He shared how he’s always been busy during night hours running an online program at Harvard University.
Uchemba also blamed his sickness on his failure to get enough sleep after his Doctor revealed he broke down because of too much stress.
Sharing before and after photos of his illness, the comedian appreciated his friends and fans who noticed that he’d gone MIA on social media and reached out to him.
Revealing that he’s fully recovered, Williams expressed gratitude to God, especially for not testing positive for Covid-19.

“I guess the body breaks down when/if we forget to stop and take care of our health. The past few weeks have reminded me of how we take good health for granted. Since my return to Nigeria from the US, I’ve been unable to sleep at night and in the morning, I head out for my daily activities, neglecting my sleep.
“Few weeks ago was the height of the stress cos I’ve been taking an online program at Harvard University which runs through the night. In the morning I head out for outreach to feed people on the street so last two weeks my body parked up and I had to be taken to the hospital.
“They ran all the tests and No it wasn’t Covid 19 😂 thankfully. I was under immense stress. Thanks to each and everyone of you that noticed my absence on social media and left tons of messages. I feel a lot better now Swipe left to see my current state. All thanks and Glory be to God Almighty . What have I missed?”
Recall that the actor recently made headlines after he took a poor family out of the slum and got them a new home.
