MPNAIJA GIST:Kanu reveals how his wife narrowly saved his life after hearing his heartbeat

In 1996, Kanu had needed lifesaving open-heart surgery after being diagnosed with a heart valve defect. Amara, 30, couldn’t shake the niggling feeling that was something wasn’t quite right and insisted her husband get it checked immediately. .

 Kanu, now 40, says:

“She was saying I should go for a check-up so I took her advice.” And Amara was proved right because experts told him there was further damage to his heart and he urgently needed a second operation. .
“It was the same faulty valve,” “It was like a ticking time bomb. It’s just one of those things we were lucky to find out.”

Not only did she save his life, Amara also nursed him back to health. .

Kanu’s first open-heart surgery was in 1996 after a routine medical examination at Inter Milan revealed the serious heart defect. He was a professional athlete at the top of his game and had just helped Nigeria win gold at the Olympics. .

 It was a complete shock but Kanu says:

“Now I know that being fit and strong doesn’t make your heart 100%.”
