Erico has not been seen on the scene for some time and fans have wondered why that was so.
But Erico, who has currently announced his return to music, says it was his battle with ‘death’ that chased him out of the music industry.
According to a report by ModernGhana.com, Erico in an interview with Hello FM, said he had to roam from one health facility to the other to seek help.
In his own words “I was hospitalized at seven health centers; Ridge Hospital, Korle Bu Polyclinic, Amen Scientific Hospital, Lapaz Community Clinic, Holy Trinity Hospital, Dome Community Hospital, Taifa Medical Centre, but to no avail.”
Narrating his ordeal, Erico said it all started with a stomach pain, and he was subsequently diagnosed of a stomach infection.
However, no amount treatment could salvage the situation and so he was further tested for typhoid.
He continued that the situation worsened and so he was taken to prayer camps but still no solution.
Erico continued that he almost got paralyzed, and decided to seek God’s intervention through prayers because he got tired of taking different pills.
“It was later realized that I had kidney infections because I couldn’t urinate well and was urinating every 10 minutes so they had to fix a tube in my manhood. I was then taken to a prayer camp called ‘Taabiri Kooko Asefo’ and that was where things started changing,” Erico said.
It was at the prayer camp that he met someone who introduced him to herbal medicine which later healed him of all his sicknesses.
According to Erico, all these struggles strengthened his faith in God, and now that he is back on his feet, he would resume his music career.
“I just want to tell everybody that with God all things are possible. I thought I will be put on dialysis but my God intervened on my behalf,” Erico said.
