Leo Mezie, Nollywood actor, says his ‘miraculous’ recovery from a Kidney ailment he suffered has compelled him to believe Jesus Christ more than he previously did. “I’ll be leading people to Christ,” Mezie told Newsbreak.ng during a press briefing held Tuesday at Ojez Bar, Surulere, Lagos.
“I don’t know why He (Jesus) chose to give me a second chance, but I believe it’s to serve him, (and) this time around in everything I do,” he said.
The actor also said he had a clergy, Apostle Suleiman Johnson, to thank for footing his medical and travel expenses to the United Kingdom health facility, where he had hope to do a transplant.
“He (Apostle Johnson) gave me money and took care of all my medical bills.”
Mezie said he was on the throe of having his faulty kidney replaced, but it suddenly became functional.
“It was a miracle,” the actor exclaimed.
“My biggest appreciation is to the Almighty God. Despite my sins and shortcomings, he still found me worthy to receive his mercy.
“Secondly, I’ll like to thank my wife, who stood by me in this challenging time despite odds. I owe my life to you (the wife).”
