For some years, popular actor, Femi Branch, was out of circulation to nurse a serious injury that crippled him for about two years, Punch reports.

He told Saturday Beats that it took another three years before he could walk with both feet.

Branch said, “Why I took a break from the movie industry was because I had an accident in 2011. I was shooting my second film when I had an accident on the set and broke my legs. I had five fractures on my right foot and four fractures on the left one.

“I could not work for two years because I was on crutches and that took me off work. I was lucky that the first job I did after recovery was the one I did for MNET. Till date anytime I stress the feet, they get swollen. This incident limited the kind of roles I could do for another three years.

“I was getting scripts but I could not take them because they required me to move frequently. If I was getting five scripts in a month, I could not do any of them and on some occasions, I could only do one or two projects. That was what happened during that period. I could not work because of the medical situation.”

He stated that he owed a lot of his friends and colleagues so much gratitude for keeping him afloat during that period.
