Actor Segun Arinze says he developed a fear for swimming as a young boy after he almost drowned.
According to him, at a young age, he had gotten into a fight with a boy who tried to drown him while he was learning to swim.
"Ever since I had a terrible phobia for swimming and ran away from any pool. So you can imagine me trying the swimming ropes many years after," he wrote on Instagram.
Segun Arinze said that Ned Nwoko husband of Regina Daniels had advised him to take up swimming again.
The actor shared a video of himself trying to swim with an instructor while Ned Nwoko stood by urging him to continue.
"When @princenednwoko insisted I overcome the phobia by being my instructor thank you Distinguished Sir. Omo no be small thing ooo. See fear!".
