I remember clearly when America returnee, Hanks Anuku first graced our TV screens, the ladies couldn't stop talking about him, he was tall, built, handsome and he had the American accent. He graced the cover of several movie packs but not long after, the hottie looked unrecognisable and subsequently became scarce in Nollywood movies. The 40 years + Ibadan born actor looked dried up and untidy, there were suggestions that he was on drugs and was having financial problems, this was never refuted.
The actor who is best known for playing bad boy roles in movies revealed recently that his career was runed by alcohol and drugs which almost caused mental illness, he added that while he was a Special Adviser to Emmanuel Uduaghan, who is the governor of Delta State governor, the illness forced him out of the government house. In his own words;
“Yes, I got my healing through TB Joshua. It is our Lord’s doing. I was having issues with mentality for over seven years, you will notice I have not been that frequent in movies for long. Even when I was special assistant to our dear governor, I was not in a good state of mind and this affected my work in the government before I was advised to seek for solution in Ghana. I spent so much money visiting hospitals, orthodox and unorthodox doctors without positive result. Until I was introduced to TB Joshua. I was only watching his TV programme in Ghana and was healed. I put my faith into it just like the woman with the issue of blood and knew that I would be healed and I got my healing. I am now a mentally stable man. I have dropped drinking and smoking habit, glory be to God.”He was special adviser on Tourism and Entertainment.
