There were reports some weeks ago that the A-list Nigerian actor known as Hanks Anuku had acquired the deadly HIV/AIDS and intentionally infected his wife with the disease.
The Nigerian actor who spoke to Nana Aba Anamoah on TV3’s morning show “New Day” today, February 24th, 2015 has disclosed that he does not have HIV/AIDS as reported by several blogs in Nigerian and Ghana.
The Nigerian Actor who is popularly known for his gangster and action roles in movies stated emphatically that, he was not HIV positive.
He also exclusively told the host, that, he has even never visited Zambia or Liberia as reported too.
Nana Aba Anamoah then pushed the question again, and the actor said that he was ready to be tested live on Televison if she wanted.
The actor who is staunch Roman Catholic who also worships occasionally at T.B Joshua’s church said that, even the blood of Jesus wouldn’t allow such ailment in his body.
“Oh God have mercy. It’s false. I woke up one morning and my phone rang in such an unusual form and when I answered I was told about this story.
But I told the caller that he was person calling a wrong number. But after a while more calls kept coming in so I prayed to God and asked him to forgive not just me but everyone who’s spreading such rumor.
I thought it was a joke but after a while, it was running like wildfire in my country Nigeria. I asked myself why me? I am only trying to do something good here so why would someone want to condemn me when I haven’t done anything? I am doing what God says I should do by letting people know that this or that is not good for you. I didn’t make myself a celeb. God did it”.
And they probably don’t know that whatever they are throwing at me that is evil is going to turn out for my good. And I am here to defend it because I don’t have AIDS, I don’t have HIV.
“I have never been to Zambia or Liberia. I have only been to Sierra Leone to visit Tijan Kabar when he was President. I have never seen the Zambian women how they look like let alone sleep with 80 of them. There are too many women in Ghana and I haven’t even had the time to pick up on one because my mind is pre-occupied with many things like writing and travelling around to know the country. They can bring the evidence if they want. The names of the women, their addresses, the date I travelled and all that. I am ready to take them on big time”.
The Actor, whose wife and two kids are in Nigeria, admitted that the rumor had some effect on his family who were initially bothered but stood firmly by him.
“Initially I thought it was going to tear me apart especially when my family started getting worried about it.
My “wifey” called me and said Honey; don’t mind them; that’s the way it is. When I have the time I do go back to Nigeria because I need a peace of mind for what I am doing because in Nigeria when I move around people follow me. I have a lot of fans around the world because a lot of the youth are impacted positively by what I do in the movies”.
