Nigerian actress Kemi Afolabi has revealed that she has just five years to live.

The movie star made this known during a recent chat with Chude Jideonwo.

According to Afolabi, she has an incurable ailment and has already lived one year out of the five years given to her by the doctors.

Afolabi quoted her doctor as saying, “Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to five years.”

"I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life," she said.

She noted that she paid N1.2m on a treatment yet it did not work as she continually cried in pain.

It would be recalled that in Jan, the actress revealed how she had written her will after the diagnosis.

"I wrote my will and booked a space with ebony vault this year 2021 but God showed me how faithful he is despite my unfaithfulness," she wrote.

“Who am I that God is so mindful of my existence? Me ordinary sand? That was toss around from my private hospital to LASUTH, to Army barracks hospital WAEC and finally LUTH where I spent over three months!"

The 43-year-old actor is married with a child.
