Abiola Segun Williams covers October issue of Genevieve Magazine

On our cover this October is Abiola Segun Williams @abiolasegunwilliams who plays Titi K, Shalewa’s mum in Tinsel. She opens up for the time on her battle with Scleroderma an auto- immune rheumatic disease that affects the skin and some organs of the body. Talking about her experience, she said:


“At the early stage,  I didn’t know what the problem was. I was my own doctor, I read everything on the Internet that seemed to relate with my symptoms. I noticed my teeth had problems, my limbs became heavy to move, my feet, hands, face were swollen. I went very dark and my skin began to harden, itch and became very scaly. I was in pain twenty four seven’.

Read her compelling interview in Genevieve.


How did you condition yourself to deal with the many physical changes?
I basically stopped looking in the mirror. I told myself this was only a phase I was passing through. My face had changed completely. My skin looked absolutely scary. I was as skinny  as a rake but my focus was my health rather than how I looked. I was in too much pain now to care about my looks.
