Content creator Flaqo battles mysterious ailment for two months

Content creator Erastus Ayieko Otieno alias Flaqo has shared health struggles and emphasizes the importance of mental well-being.

Flaqo has disclosed that he has been grappling with an undisclosed illness for the past two months.

The comedian took to his accounts to reveal the challenges he has been facing.

Flaqo shared a video documenting his hospital visits and tests, expressing his hope for a return to normalcy.

“It has been 2 months of lots of ons and offs in the hospital. The boy can’t move like he used to, but God is in control. If you believe in God, help me pray,” he urged his followers.

The comedian didn’t disclose the specific nature of his ailment but conveyed his determination to overcome it.

“Never underestimate good health when God gives it to you. I keep getting better and relapsing. I can’t wait to beat all this. I miss creating content I hate feeling helpless.”

This isn’t the first time Flaqo has opened up about health struggles; in 2022, he revealed a battle with allergies that affected his daily life.

Back then, Flaqo described the challenges he faced due to hives and urticaria, causing discomfort and hindering his ability to work consistently.

However, he shared that after focusing on his mental health and adopting a more relaxed lifestyle, the allergies disappeared.

Flaqo also shed light on the impact of online pressure and the toll it took on his mental health.

The comedian confessed that during the Covid-19 period, despite making a considerable amount of money through numerous advertisements, he felt like he had “sold his soul.”

He highlighted the importance of taking breaks to maintain mental well-being and addressed the negative criticism he faced online.

“During Covid-19, I made a lot of money. I was taking every advert that came to me. But I realized that it was leading me astray and I wasn’t enjoying myself. It was like I had sold my soul,” Flaqo explained.

Despite the challenges, Flaqo remains optimistic about his recovery and is determined to bounce back stronger. His message to fans is one of faith, resilience, and the importance of prioritizing mental health.
