Nwanchukwu Ozioko, popularly known as Vast from the popular singing group, Bracket, has been diagnosed with Lymphoma, a type of cancer of the blood.
The singer was diagnosed in February this year after suffering serious body pains, headaches, non stop coughing, loss of weight and weakness while in Paris for a show. He flew to London where a test conducted determined he had cancer.
Vast has been receiving treatment at the Wellington Hospital in the UK since February and there are reports he’s responding very well to treatment. He has undergone 4 circles of chemotherapy with each circle costing about N1.4million. He will do a few more before returning to Nigeria next month.
According to sources close to the singer, the sad part is that he actually went to a hospital in Nigeria late last year when he started losing weight and feeling weak.
They conducted a test on him but it took them forever to come back with the test result. Over three months actually. By then the cancer had spread to his liver. But thankfully he’s getting better and will return home soon.
