Popular Nigeria music journalist, music critic and media personality, Joey Akan has revealed how he became seriously ill after going through his routine early morning jogging exercise, to the extent he eventually ended up in the hospital.
The journalist had taken to his verified twitter account to share his experience while he took ill a week after he was full of energy and life, doing his routine morning exercise, from Ajose Adeogun to Bonny Camp and back. Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it anymore for quite some days ago and even at the moment, to the extent that he couldn’t walk even though he had tried so hard to do so.
“My heart broke yesterday (referring to Tuesday) when i was being driven like an invalid to a hospital in V.I,” he tweeted, “i ached the most when the driver passed through V.I.
Just last week, i was leisurely running from Ajose Adeogun to Bonny Camp and back. I couldn’t even walk, no matter how much i wanted to,” he added.
Reacting to the tweep, one Muh’d Awwal Oko Awon Baddies recalled how he had sighted Joey Akan last week Wednesday, somewhere around Ajose while doing his morning exercise (jogging). He also revealed how he had wanted to reach out to Joey, but for not being sure if it was him he declined the urge.
“I think i saw you around Ajose last week Wednesday or so, while doing your morning exercise. I could have said ‘Hi’ but i wasn’t too sure you were the one or not. Your jogging na die, e be like flash,” @Poju_klez wrote.
On his part, Joey admitted to being the person he saw the day he mentioned, and equally revealed that it was after that morning exercise that he became sick.
“That was the day i fell ill. After that speed run,” Joey Akan confirmed.
This could actually be as a result of stress which his body/system has accumulated over a period of time and lack of proper and enough resting duration, possibly as a result of his work rate/load and hectic days, hence leading to the breakdown of his system. Which once again goes to show the danger inherent in constant over stretching and stressing of our body/system without a commensurate resting period.
Yes, in as much as we strive on the daily, to meet up with targets and also make enough money in return, it is important that we equally put our system and health into consideration.
Though he confirmed that he’s already recovering convincingly, as lots of his followers have prayed and wished him quick recovery.
