Sophia thanks Nigerians 11-years after surviving hole in the heart

Nigerian singer, Sophia Igboanugo, has expressed her gratitude to Nigerians for donating funds to save her life when she needed N2.5 million for open heart surgery in India 11-years ago.

The afro-pop singer took to her Instagram page to narrate the story of her near-death encounter with a heart defect when she was eight years old.

Sophia, who was full of appreciation to Nigerians who heard about her plight in the media and donated funds, said she wouldn’t have survived if Nigerians had not made the donations.

“I had no hope, I thought it was all over, the funds were heavy, but Nigerians didn’t let me die, God didn’t let me,” she said.

Sophia shared a picture of the newspaper publication where her fundraising announcement was published and wrote:

“I remember not being able to go to school, I remember not been able to even have friends cos I was too weak to keep any. I remember I had a deadline else I would die, I remember how many times mum stayed up all night just because I was sick.

“I remember going to the hospital everyday of my life for one year (on my mum’s back)… I remember loosing weight, I remember not being able to eat, I remember going to TV houses, news paper houses and heart foundations, I remember how mum hid to cry.

“I remember hearing her prayers, I remember the humiliation she felt… I remember hearing that Nigerians had helped and we now had the funds, I remember going into the theatre, I remember waking up in the ICU (intensive care unit) with no one around and was choking with my own vomit.

“I remember vomiting while I was lying down and because I wore a mask it was going back into my nostrils and mouth, I remember feeling life leave my body, yes I remember the sound of the machine when life was leaving me, I remember the doctors who gathered around me, I remember a syringe pass through my body but I was too weak to even feel it, cos I was almost dead…

“BUT, I remember surviving and hey! I’m here still fighting to make my mum and all of you proud, I remember this was 11-years ago.

“I still need your Help Nigerians, I really do😥…What ever you are going through now, you will come out of it in peace. Amen”
