The elder brother of P’Square, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye has just donated N1 million to help fund the operation of a brain tumor patient, Ibezim Osemeke, who is in need of N 3.7 million for an operation in India.
Mr Osemeke was reportedly diagnosed with a brain tumour four months ago after he suddenly developed hearing impairment, change in voice, severe headache and weakness of the body.
The tumour was diagnosed at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) after a CT Scan of his brain, which revealed the brain tumour called Chordoma.
Engees reportedly read about the need to raise funds for the operation on a popular blog and subsequently made the donation.
Jude, the older brother of singing duo, P Square, is an artiste manager and music video director.
The brothers recently lost their mother who passed in India following a long battle with diabetes.
Mrs Josephine Okoye will be laid to rest on Thursday, August 2, 2012, in Ifite Dunu, Awka, Anambra state.
