Farooq Oreaga Opens Up About Incurable Cancer, Fame in Ojude Oba Festival

The viral Ojude Oba businessman, Farooq Oreagba, has opened up about his battle with incurable cancer and how his uncertain time left motivates his fun-loving lifestyle.

Farooq recently made headlines for his style and appearance at the annual Ojude Oba festival in Ijebu Ode.

In a recent interview on Arise News, the head of NG Clearing Limited discussed the family values that tie him to the festival, noting that he has participated for over 15 years.

Speaking about his bone cancer, Farooq Oreagba revealed he was diagnosed in 2014 and underwent a bone marrow transplant the same year. He also shared his involvement in cancer charity work and counseling others with various cancer diagnoses.

“People ask me why I am so happy despite having an incurable bone cancer. I tell them, ‘I am alive, and as long as you’re in the game, you can win the game. Every day is a blessing,’” he said partly.

The cancer survivor highlighted how friends deserted him after his diagnosis, leaving him with fewer than 100 friends from having millions.

“My friends reduced from five million to one million when I left the Nigerian exchange and from one million to a hundred when I was diagnosed with cancer,” he added.
