Going on, she added that their sister Linda has moved into Céline’s home to provide additional support to her three sons. Together, René-Charles, Eddy, Nelson and their aunt, are all helping with her care, rehabilitation work, and recovery. The family is also listening to top researchers in the field as much as they can.

Claudette said that she is concerned about her sister maybe going beyond while reassuring everyone that Céline is making great efforts to heal. In her words, “I honestly think that she needs to rest the most. She always goes above and beyond, she always tries to be the best and at the top of her game.”

Feeling that Celine’s body is trying to get her to slow down and relax, she welcomed her sister’s decision to stop singing and performing saying, “Your body and your heart are at some point attempting to communicate with you. You should pay attention to it.”

This comes after the world-class singer disclosed that she had been diagnosed with the rare and incurable condition. Five months after which she indefinitely postponed the final lap of her Courage World Tour in May.

According to the Mayo Clinic, stiff person syndrome is an incurable neurological condition that results in uncontrollable muscle spasms, and it affects just one in every one million people.

The mother of the famous Hausa political singer, Dauda Adamu Kahutu, popularly known as Rarara, has been freed by bandits.

The news of her release was confirmed by Rarara, on his verified Instagram handle on Wednesday morning.

Details about the release of the 75-year-old Raraya mother are unclear, but unconfirmed reports indicate that a ransom of millions of naira was paid for her freedom.

Recall that Rarara’s mother, Hajiya Hauwa’u Adamu, was kidnapped on June 28, 2024, from her residence in Kahutu village. According to a source, the incident occurred around 1:00 am, shortly after a large group of bandits armed with AK-47 rifles invaded the village.

“The bandits stormed the village barefoot and operated for a few minutes. Upon their arrival in the village, the bandits went straight to the residence of the victim and picked only her, ignoring other people they met in the house.

Following the abduction, police authorities in Katsina State announced that two suspects have been arrested for questioning.

“Upon receipt of the report, promptly, the DPO Danja led a team of operatives to the scene with a view to arresting the culprits and unhurt rescue of the victim,” the spokesman of the Katsina Police Command Abubakar Sadiq said.

Three years after undergoing invasive surgery to remove fibroids, Nigerian actress Ini Dima-Okojie has announced that the fibroids have returned.

Taking to Instagram on July 17, 2024, the actress addressed her followers and fans and updated them about the challenges she’s facing and her plans moving forward.

She explained, “I want to share something important with you today. If you’ve been following me, you would probably know that before the end of 2020, I had a myomectomy, which is an evasive surgery to take out fibroids. The surgery was successful; my doctor removed every single fibroid and I healed well. It’s been 3 years since the surgery and unfortunately, the fibroids are back.”

Acknowledging the emotional toll of this setback, she admitted that the news has been hard on her, adding that she has no intentions of undergoing fresh surgery to have them removed.

“It’s very disheartening and it hasn’t been the easiest couple of months but I’m okay. I’ve come to terms with it, and I definitely don’t want to do another surgery anytime soon. This time I want to take a holistic approach towards shrinking the fibroids,” she said.

The actress added, “I just thought it was important to share and it wasn’t easy. I remember the first time I shared my story and how many women felt seen and many people shared their stories with me.”

Ini Dima-Okojie highlighted the importance of raising awareness about fibroids, particularly among black women.

“Too many black women go through this and it wasn’t being talked about enough and it’s still not being talked about enough. I don’t even know if a remedy is being found for it. I’m going to be paying for 20 women to get their screening done; it’s very important,” she said.
