My wife left me at test centre on learning I’m HIV positive – musician

Published

A Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive musician, Moses Nsubuga, has narrated his experiences since he tested positive for the disease 25 years ago.

Nsubuga, a Ugandan singer known in showbiz as Supercharger, revealed that his wife of eight years quit the relationship at the testing centre when she heard his status.

The singer, who also doubles as a radio host, also revealed that his family dug his grave immediately the results came out in 1994.

Nsubuga is, however, not blaming his wife for leaving him, saying she warned him of his reckless behaviour but he didn’t take heed.

In 1994, they decided to take an HIV test together and while she tested negative, his result came back positive.

Soon after the test results were revealed, Nsubuga’s wife excused herself to visit the washrooms and never came back.

“The mother of my children left me at the test centre,” he previously told Ugandan Monitor.

Four years later, the musician became very ill after failing to adhere to the antiretroviral treatment prescription.

“I was not used to swallowing drugs every day and on top of that they were too expensive,” he told the World Health Organisation.

“I was about to die. My relatives gathered at my aunt’s home in Entebbe. They had laid me on the mat. They started planning. They wondered if I died, who had Ush1.5 million to take my body to Kitalaganya. The wise thing was to put me on the bus before I die.”

His constant vomiting ended their bus journey as other passengers were not comfortable and the help of a Good Samaritan eventually got them to commute to their home village in Kitalaganya, central Uganda.

On the drive home, his aunts briefly stopped the journey to purchase materials for his burial.

“They bought cement, one iron sheet and backcloth which they would use on my grave. We then continued. They monitored me every day but I didn’t die,” Nsubuga said.

Things have since turned around for the better for the singer who was rescued by a former parliamentarian and took him to Kampala for treatment after learning of his travails.

The singer has since released “Say No to Resistance,” a song in which he urges people living with HIV to stick to antiretroviral drugs.

I hope my son, Harvey, dies before me, Katie Price says, states why

Katie Price

Reality TV star, Katie Price has confessed that she hopes her autistic son, Harvey dies before she does.

This comes just after doctors issued a stark warning about Harvey’s health.

The 42-year-old was left fearing the worst earlier this week when her eldest son was rushed to the hospital, after falling ill at daughter Princess’ birthday party.

He was discharged and is currently recovering at home. Speaking about his condition, the mum-of-five said she was warned by health experts that he is at serious risk of dying from a heart attack if they don’t make changes.

And she confessed that she hopes the 18-year-old will ‘go’ before she dies, as he won’t be able to cope without her.

“The doctors have told me he’s at high risk of having a heart attack,” she told the Sun.

“I know it’s horrible to say, but I wish he’d go before me because he wouldn’t cope without me.

“He’d be so heartbroken and wouldn’t understand where I’d gone.’ Katie also confessed her worries over Harvey’s health as he ‘weighs 27-and-a-half stone’ and gets ‘out of breath’ from walking up the stairs.

“I can’t see him living past 50 unless we sort his weight and his breathing out,” she added.

“We try everything but cutting down food is hard.’ Harvey is blind and autistic, and has also been diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome – which affects his speech and movement. People with Prader-Willi are constantly hungry, which can lead to obesity.

The teenager suffered from chest pains at Princess’ birthday party and was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner later shared a video on YouTube, telling fans:

“He kept complaining of chest pains. I said ‘how does it feel?’ and he said ‘like needles.’ Straight away, because of his complex needs, do I call the doctor or do I call the ambulance? ‘I don’t like it when people waste ambulances’ time. He’s at high risk because of coronavirus, he’s high risk because of his obesity and the steroids he’s on and his medical condition so I did call 999.”

Katie was reportedly supported by ex-husbands Kieran Hayler and Peter Andre over the ordeal.

“Both Pete and Kieran messaged Katie afterwards, offering help and support,” an insider told the Sun.

“She’s on really good terms with them now and they were both Harvey’s stepdad once, and he’s their children’s brother.

“They were both relieved when Harvey was discharged and went home.”

Chimamanda Adichie

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is still mourning her father, Professor James Nwoye Adiche, who died on June 10, 2020, at the age of 88.

In a tribute to him posted on Facebook, the renowned author detailed the events leading up to his death.

She also spoke about some of the plans they made for the future.

She spoke of her pain; how she cried for days till her side muscles ached, how she screamed and pounded things, and how much she misses him.

She accompanied her words with a video showing her and her father together at different points in their life.

Professor Adichie, Odelu Ora Abba, was Nigeria’s first professor of Statistics. He studied Mathematics at Ibadan and got his PhD in Statistics from Berkeley.

Mourning him, the Half of a Yellow Sun author wrote:

“And just like that my life has changed forever. June 7, there was Daddy on our weekly family zoom call, talking and laughing. June 8, he felt unwell. Still, when we spoke he was more concerned about my concussion (I’d fallen while playing with my daughter).

“June 9, we spoke briefly, my brother Okey with him. “Ka chi fo,” he said. His last words to me. June 10, he was gone.

“Because I loved my father so much, so fiercely, so tenderly, I always at the back of my mind feared this day. But he was in good health. I thought we had time. I thought it wasn’t yet time. I have come undone. I have screamed, shouted, rolled on the floor, pounded things. I have shut down parts of myself…

“Sleep is the only respite. On waking, the enormity, the finality, strikes – I will never see my father again. Never again. I crash and go under. The urge to run and run, to hide from this. The shallow surface of my mind feels safest because to go deeper is to face unbearable pain. All the tomorrows without him, his wisdom, his grace.

“We talked almost daily. I sent him my travel itineraries. He would text me just before I got on a stage: Ome ife ukwu! Nothing else mattered to me as much as the pride in his eyes.

“I saw him last on March 5th in Abba. I had planned to be back in May. We planned to record his stories of my great grandmother…”
