The Transgender has come out to say his own part of everything relating to his asking for financial help due to his botched surgery.

He wrote: “On the 30th October 2023, i had a BBL and Liposuction at CGE AESTHETICS (Curvy Girl Essentials) from 5pm -11:40pm, when I became conscious on 31st October 2023 while still at CGE till 11:22am. My urine for 12hours was less than 200ml and the surgeon began to panic, a referral was made to Lagoon hospital on the 31st October 2023 and I arrived Lagoon hospital at exactly 3:56pm
where doctors at the emergency unit came for their investigations and recommended medications to subdue pains while (EUCR, FBC, CT-SCAN, CRP AND XYZ) was going on. On 1st November 2023 at 3:42am, Lagoon Hospital returned me in an ambulance to CGE AESTHETICS.

We arrived Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre in Yaba at 6.23am and i was diagnosed with Sepsis and Acute kidney injury, and we started dialysis, which i did daily at that time and i still couldn’t pass urine. I also did a plasma exchange to enable me pass urine, but that didn’t work.

I NEVER POSTED I NEEDED KIDNEY TRANSPLANT, I only posted I needed donations for my hospital bills.

Due to the media pressure, Zenith Hospital Management discharged me at 9a.m with a creatinine as high as 807 on the 18th November 2023 and asked i do my dialysis from home, all efforts to check in to LUTH AND LASUTH was VOID DUE TO LACK OF BED SPACE IN the Critical Care Unit (CCU). I went to St.Nicholas hospital (Campbell street Lagos) where i had to continue my dialysis and more.

I had to go offline for my mental health because the bullying was too much and I was getting death threats. I ceased communications because my family decided we needed privacy.

I NEVER SCVMMED NIGERIANS, I NEVER LIED, AND I DID NOT DEFRAUD ANYONE. I HAD SEPSIS AND ACUTE KIDNEY INJURY, AND I WAS ON DIALYSIS.

It took this long for me to respond because my health was my priority and i had to take care of myself. I was discharged on the 28th of November 2023, i am getting better and i feel better. I am still on medications, and i am also off dialysis for now and my health is rejuvenating.

I want to thank everyone that donated and reached out to me during my ordeal and i want to assure them i never lied or scammed Nigerians about my situation.”
