This makes us terribly sad. Such Nwanchukwu Ozioko (aka Vast) of the music duo Bracket – whose hits include ‘Yori Yori’ has been diagnosed of Lymphoma, a cancer of the blood.
The blogger Linda Ikeji reveals that the “singer was diagnosed in February this year after suffering serious body pains, headaches, non stop coughing, loss of weight and weakness while in Paris for a show. He flew to London where a test conducted determined he had cancer. Vast has been receiving treatment at the Wellington Hospital in the UK since February and I hear he’s responding very well to treatment. He has undergone 4 cycles of chemotherapy with each cycle costing about N1.4million. He will do a few more before returning to Nigeria next month.”
The cancer is said to have spread to his liver, but thankfully he is said to be getting better and will be home soon.
Our prayers are with him.
