Veteran Nollywood star, Hanks Anuku has finally broken his silence on the discourse about his mental health on social media.
Recall that Hanks was recently in the news after a disturbing video of a man, who bears a semblance to him, was spotted roaming the streets in tattered clothes, sparking concern from fans and well-meaning Nigerians.
Following which his colleague, Shan George, came out to debunk speculations that he’s mentally unstable and shared a video and photos of herself and Hanks working on a movie set in Asaba. It was also alleged that he’s playing the role of a ‘mad king’ in the movie.
However, some Nollywood actresses, Adanma Luke and Iheme Nancy, insist that Hanks is unwell and people in Asaba can attest that he is not okay.
Amid the saga, another video showing the actor drinking alcohol and talking to himself at a roadside bar also hit the internet, seemingly solidifying claims that the actor is not fine.
Well, Hanks has now addressed the rumours making rounds about him, as he hints that the videos are from a movie he’s featured in. He also warned people to stop speaking ill of him.
“Tell all these motherfuckers who write crap about me to stop writing crap and leave me alone. If they want to act the movie, if they need help, they can come to me. I’ve been on set and anyone writing using those pictures on set to try and destroy my image. May the Holy Spirit forgive you.
We shall hook up pretty soon.”
