WATCH: Video of KODA Narrating how he was Given the Wrong Medication for Eight Months Pops Up

In the video, KODA describes a horrifying incident that happened to him in 2016 when a hospital situated in Takoradi gave him medication that was not right for his condition.

Following the recent death of Ghanaian gospel artist, KODA, reactions to an old video resurfacing have sparked outrage on social media.

In the video, KODA describes a horrifying incident that happened to him in 2016 when a hospital in Takoradi prescribed him a medication that was not right for his condition.

According to KODA, he was taking the sulfur-based medication without realizing it for close to eight months, due to his struggles with G6PD (Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency), a condition causing red blood cells to break down in response to certain medication, infections, or other stresses.

“I began experiencing peculiar symptoms after being treated for about two days and discharged. So, I took the initiative to research the medication prescribed to me and discovered it contained a sulfur-based component, which posed a risk due to my G6PD condition,” he said. “Sulfur is a known trigger for my condition. I questioned why I was given such medication for nearly 6 to 8 months. Were they trying to harm me?!” Upon confronting the medical staff, they acknowledged the error and apologized.”
