Is Halima Abubakar sick? Fans have been wondering why she hasn’t been in any movies lately

The Nigerian actress has been in movies like Okafor’s Law, Tears of a Child, Beyond Disability, Area Mama, Love Castle, and Men in Love. Halima’s first role was a small one in the 2001 movie Rejected. Gangster Paradise was where she got her first big role. She won many acting awards, including the City People Movie Special Recognition Award and the Afro Hollywood Best Actress award in 2011. The Nollywood actress also makes movies and runs a business. She is the CEO of Modehouse Entertainment, which is a company that manages artists and puts out music.

Is Halima Abubakar Sick? Diseases and health news

Halima Abubakar has decided to stop acting because she has been sick with a disease she won’t talk about for a long time.

She has lupus, according to 247 News, but this hasn’t been confirmed by an official source yet. The site says that she was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer (Lupus) on September 23, 2019, and that she has been fighting it since 2016.

Doctors reportedly made the diagnosis in November 2016, after Halima collapsed at her father’s funeral after a long flight from the United States to Nigeria.

Because of her health, she hasn’t been able to work for more than four years. Last year, the actress’s family said that she was sick. Her management team also shared the sad news.

After being taken to a hospital in Abuja, she got blood transfusions to treat a condition called aplastic anaemia, which stopped her bone marrow from making new blood cells and could have killed her.

She thanked her fans for their prayers and love on social media and said she would focus on getting the right medical care.

“God bless you all, but from today on, she won’t be acting anymore. It’s what she wants,” the post said, adding that it was a hard decision.

Still Fighting With Apostle Johnson

People think Halima Abubakar’s health will slowly worsen as she fights with Apostle Johnson. Apostle Johnson Suleman, the founder and senior pastor of OFM (Omega Fire Ministries), is said to have been in a relationship with Halima. She recently got everyone’s attention again when she talked about it.

The actress and her family even told Johnson that if anything bad happened to her, he would be held responsible.

Last year, there were rumours that the priest had extramarital affairs with several Nollywood actresses, including famous names like Halima Abubakar, Queen Nwokoye, Shan George, and Vivian Metchie.

In July, some of them used social media to say the accusations were false. On the other hand, Johnson didn’t believe the reports and said that the list was just a useless attempt to hurt him.
