Speaking on Channels TV, Orji recounted the terrifying moment when he collapsed in the bathroom, sparking a life-threatening medical emergency. He emphasized the role of divine grace in his survival, as he remained unconscious for nearly five and a half hours before receiving assistance.

Prompted by concerned friends and colleagues, including Benedict Johnson and Labista, Orji was rushed to the National Hospital in Abuja after regaining consciousness.

The outpouring of support from across the globe, including offers of assistance from South Africa, the UK, and the US, left Orji deeply touched by the compassion and generosity of others.
