Highlife musician, Anokye Supremo, popularly known as Daddy Lumba Jr., is fighting for his life at the Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur in India after undergoing surgery to remove a tumor in his head.
According to reports sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb.com, the artiste has been in coma for some days since the operation, with surgeons hoping he revives as soon as possible.
According to reports from Kofi TV, the artiste was diagnosed with the ailment when he started experiencing a severe headache which he thought was a migraine.
Upon a visit to the hospital, he was told it was a tumor. He began to feel pains in his left eye which later led to blindness in the same eye.
In an interview with Citinewsroom he said, “It started in October and I thought it was a migraine. I went to the hospital and was told I had a tumor in my head which has caused an enlargement in my left eye,” he said.
Surgeons at the Rabindranath Tagore International, explaining the gravity of the situation, described the tumor as an aggressive one and could be cancerous.
“He has a very large tumor involving his eyes. He had no vision and we operated on his eyes. We have done our works and found a large tumor which can, unfortunately, be a cancerous tumor. He is still in the ventilator. And we hope he comes out,” the surgeon said.
Prior to his trip to India for the surgery, doctors said he was going to need some GHC 10, 000 to have a surgery done on the tumor. A GoFundMe account has however been created to assist with the medical bills.
