In August 2015, controversial Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku was involved in a bike accident in Nungua, Ledzokuku-Krowor area of Accra in Ghana. That year rumors spread all over Nigeria and Ghana that the gangster actor was dead, but during an interview with the media, Hanks Anuku debunks the rumors saying I am not dead, I am still alive. In 2015, Hanks Anuku was heartbroken after news went viral especially on social media, accusing him for testing positive to HIV/AIDS and deliberately infecting his wife with the deadly virus.
“I got tested while I was in Zambia after one of my girlfriends advised me about her pregnancy. She had gone for pregnancy tests and during that time, she was tested for HIV and the results were shocking, she was positive. She forced me to get tested but I could not come to terms with the results. After I got tested, I came back to Zimbabwe and I kept quiet about the issue. I never told my wife about the issue. I infected her, but I regret. Later on, I received some counseling and it went well,”
Hanks said his fame misled him into doing things which he wasn’t proud of.
“During my peak of popularity, I had s*x with approximately 80 women, within Harare and Zambia. In 2002 it was so amazing to be on TV. I abused the fame. To make matters worse, I lacked counseling and I failed to handle it properly,
