Nollywood actress, Abiola Segun Williams‘ sassy Titi K character on Africa Magic’s Tinsel is one of the characters a lot of people look forward to watching on the show.
However, the delightful actress has had some struggles with her health as she recently opened up to Genevieve Magazine about her battle with an autoimmune rheumatic disease called Scleroderma.
Scleroderma is a chronic hardening and contraction of the skin and connective tissue, either locally or throughout the body.
Talking about her experience, she said “At the early stage, I didn’t know what the problem was. I was my own doctor, I read everything on the Internet that seemed to relate with my symptoms. I noticed my teeth had problems, my limbs became heavy to move, my feet, hands, face were swollen. I went very dark and my skin began to harden, itch and became very scaly. I was in pain twenty-four seven’.
