We are loving the recent news story that famed Nigerian celebrity stylist, Bobby Eke, has now bounced back from a health crisis, stroke. Congrats to him and we wish him continued speedy recovery.
‘Stroke is not a good thing; I thank God I’m alive!’
FOREMOST hairstylist, Bobby Eke of Bobby’s Signature is gradually stepping into his exalted position. He was down with stroke for a couple of years but gradually regaining his vibrant life. He was at the Lagos Fashion Design Week, My Hair Story told in Lagos by Today’s Woman in conjunction with Dark and Lovely. He was also in charge of making models’ hair during the Native and Vogue event in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
When ENCOMIUM Weekly visited his Ogundana Street, Ikeja, Lagos salon, there was no evidence that the man of the house has been sick. In fact, the salon was looking lively and wearing a new look as well, thanks to the gentleman’s elder sister, Mrs. Ada Da-Silva and ever capable hand, Biodun Church.
ENCOMIUM Weekly had a chat with him about his health, recovery and business.
How is the state of your health now?
I am fine, thank you. I am getting better. I am recovering already. I give God all the thanks.
We have seen you in a couple of events, how does it feel to be back on your feet?
I am happy, I am really happy because stroke is not a good thing. I thank God I am alive.
How is Bobby’s Signature doing, when should we expect to see you resuming fully there?
You can see me here now (smiles). I am back, I have resumed work. I started work as far back as 2011 but fully in 2012.
What are the lessons learnt from your ordeal?
I have learnt to be thankful in every situation, just keep praising Him. That I am here today, it can only be God.
Is there a special diet you take now because of your health?
Yes, definitely. I take more of vegetables, beans, little carbohydrate and fish. I exercise as well, I must walk around every day. . .
