Baba Suwe is not enjoying the best of health and according to insiders account, he needs help. Sources close to the 51-year-old actor revealed that he has been battling chronic diabetes. The state of his health had allegedly deteriorated after he confirmed to have been battling the ailment in 2018.

“I am diabetic. As a result of that, my blood sugar level usually fluctuates but things are normal now. There was a time when I could not even talk. Very soon though, everybody will see me in another dimension in a movie,” he told Punch in an interview in 2018.

Sources also alleged that Baba Suwe’s finances had nosedived after his ordeal in the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, on suspicion of drug trafficking.
