When rumours hit blogosphere that popular Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku had HIV, many fans didn’t believe it till he fizzed off our screens totally.
The actor who was always stereotyped as a criminal also revealed he deliberately infected his wife with the deadly virus.
Hanks Anuku who’s now a born-again Christian and based in Ghana, disclosed in an interview that he went to Zambia for six months in April 2011 without his wife and two kids, to take part in plays teaching about HIV and AIDS.
While he worked there, he led a promiscuous life, sleeping with about 80 women. In his own words, “Life in Zambia was heaven on earth because we could enjoy life, moving in all places but I was missing my family. During that time I had quite a number of sexual activities and I slept with different women. When I came back home I never took care of the family. I started drinking life a fish and became an irresponsible husband leaving the entire burden to my wife.”
