Doctor says I have four years to live — Kemi Afolabi
Popular actress Kemi Afolabi-Adesipe has disclosed she has four more years to live based on medical report.
She said she is suffering from an incurable condition that has drained her financially, emotionally and physically.
The actress in an exclusive interview said she has lupus, an incurable condition for which a doctor said she has five more years to live.

In the excerpt of the interview shared on Jideonwo’s Instagram page, the 43-year-old movie star, quoting the doctor, said: “Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to like five years.”
Speaking about her diagnosed ailment, she said: “I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life.”
She explained at some points she spent N1.2 million weekly yet the treatment was working.
“It was not working, I was in pains, I was crying,” she said moved to tears.
