Speaking with channel television, he said;

“I have been off the scene for a while after we did the promotional tour for 76. Before that when we were preparing to go to the UK on a trip to British International Film Festival. I came down with something called Bell’s Palsy. It comes like a stroke and affects one side of your face.
