Kenyan comedian Flaqo shared a heartfelt video about his health struggles, expressing vulnerability and hope.
He shared his hospital stays over the past two months, acknowledging the limitations imposed by his condition.
“The boy can’t move like he used to.”
Yet, his faith shines through as he pleads for his followers’ prayers, stating, “If you believe in God, help me pray.”
The video offered a glimpse into Flaqo’s fight, showcasing hospital visits, tests, and an unwavering determination to recover.
He expressed his yearning to return to what he loves most, creating content and bringing laughter to others.
“I miss creating content, I hate feeling helpless,” he confessed, highlighting the frustration that comes with facing an illness that takes away one’s ability to be oneself.
How stress almost ended Flaqo’s career
In 2022, Flaqo opened up on the career threatening ailments he said have hampered his career growth.
While telling it all on his Insta-stories, the comedian confirmed his health situation has vastly improved in the past three months ever since he elected not to get stressed.
“I had bad allergies (Hives/Urticaria) since 2014. I talked about it 7 months ago. I could not sleep every night due to discomfort, I could not shoot (my videos) consistently, my body was always swelling daily, I could not go out, I was always cancelling plans,” he recalled.
The content creator also stated that taking care of one’s mental health is important.
“Ever since I took life easy, no stress, pray, mental health checks, the allergies disappeared. It’s been three months now and no sign of an allergy. Attending to your mental health is key man.”
Flaqo resurfaced after taking a one-year break from content creation citing mental health distortion.
The comedian in an interview said that he is now back after he felt the need to take a break because he was at a point where his characters had taken a toll on him because of switching roles far too many times.
Similarly, in 2020, Flaqo rubbed shoulders with another section of Twitter users after he threw his weight behind boy band Sauti Sol, who were then being criticized for cancelling a concert without notice.
We wish Flaqo a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back in action, making us laugh and reminding us that even in the face of adversity, there is always hope and room for joy.
