Shanty Town, a Nigerian Netflix movie has reminded Nigerians of how great an actor Nollywood's Chidi Mokeme is.

The movie star made a comeback into the film industry with the movie and recently answered the question on everyone's lips.

In an interview on Channels TV's Rubbin Minds, the actor, who is on another project already, revealed that he was off the entertainment scene after the tour of the movie he starred in.

He then went on to say for the first time, that he came down with Bell's palsy, a condition that affects one side of the face and makes it droopy.

According to Mokeme, the stroke-like condition is incurable because the cause is unknown and as an actor, he went through a lot trying to get back to his old self. Without an option, the actor took time off to take care of himself and faced his other source of income.
