When Sunday Scoop caught up with him recently, Williams said he was still undergoing treatment but he could see slightly with his eyes now. He said, “As you can see, I am managing my eyes and it is getting better. I still direct plays and manage to read but not as good as before. I still have a vision and I am undergoing treatment.”
He also revealed that he planned to celebrate his 50 years on stage in November, saying the celebration has started already. He stated, “I am celebrating my 50th anniversary on stage next month. But the boys in Nollywood said they wanted a jamboree a week before, which means it started last Friday.
“They will introduce Lari Williams as a musician; most people don’t know this about me. I am also unveiling a 10-track album. I came home on the invitation of the Nigerian government for FESTAC ‘77 and I have not left since then. However, I have travelled out of the country and come back.”
