A now-famous cyclist, Emmanuel Myam, better known as Emmiwuks, has been hospitalized following his 15-day journey by bicycle all the way from Benue to Lagos.
KanyiDaily recalls that Emmiwuks gained widespread attention on August 3 when he embarked on a bicycle ride from Benue to Lagos to meet with Afrobeats superstar, Davido.
Although Davido advised him to turn around and go home because he was not in the country at the moment, Emmiwuks insisted that he was not going back to Benue until he present his gift to the singer in Lagos.
Davido also asked Emmiwuks to provide his bank account details and head back home, stressing that he would meet him upon his return to Nigeria.
The cyclist expressed gratitude for Davido’s offer to send a monetary blessing, but he preferred to wait for Davido’s return to hand over the gift he brought from Benue personally.
On August 18, Emmiwuks finally reached his destination in Lagos, where he was greeted with an enthusiastic and joyous reception by the Tiv community residing in the state.
In an unexpected twist, a recent video shared on Emmiwuks’ Facebook page showed him in a visibly weakened state, confined to a hospital setting due to some health struggles.
In the video, Emmiwuks could be seen surrounded by his companions as he lie on his hospital bed while being connected to intravenous drips that were firmly affixed to his hand.
At some point in the video, his friends inquired if he was hungry, to which he responded with a gracious willingness to partake in any nourishment they could provide.
