“I Never Lied to Nigerians”- Jay Boogie Breaks Silence on Scam Allegations

Popular transgender, Jay Boogie has finally spoken up after he was accused of scamming Nigerians by supposedly claiming to need a kidney transplant following his failed BBL surgery.

Empire earlier reported that the transgender had suffered health challenges after undergoing a badly done BBL surgery.

At the time, it was reported that he had had failed kidneys and was in need of a kidney transplant.

Jay Boogie had gone online to seek support for his medical bills, however, people had claimed that he was just trying to scam Nigerians after Netizens dissected his supposed medical history and found his claims lacking transparency.

In a candid statement on social media, Jayboogie set the record straight. He explained that he never claimed he needed a kidney transplant. The rumors, he says, were not started by him. His real ordeal began with an injury to his kidney, which was a consequence of the BBL surgery. To lend credence to his story, he shared images of himself both in the surgical room and during his painful recovery.

In his statement, Jayboogie categorically denied allegations of scamming the public. He affirmed that he did suffer from sepsis and acute kidney injury, which necessitated a period of dialysis. However, he joyfully shared that as of November 28, he was discharged and is currently recuperating. He is still under medication but is optimistic about his recovery.

In his words;

“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 witha 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). ! 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 SCAMMED 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, iam 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 who donated and reached out to me during my ordeal and I want to assure them i never lied or scammed Nigerians about my situation.”
