In a series of posts and insta stories to her over 2M Instagram followers, the mother of one disclosed that the implants had adverse side effects on her body to a point that they threatened her life further urging ladies not to take the direction she had.
She then went ahead to promise that she will be sharing videos of the surgeries she had in removing the implants and true to her word, she shared bits of the video as she got ready for the surgery.
But it did not show any of the procedures other than numerous wires on her legs and chest promising to release the whole footage of the procedure on Friday, October 7.
She kept her followers waiting for the better part of the day but nothing came up until late in the night after 9:00 PM only for her to release a song on her YouTube channel.

Njugush attacked by armed robbers in Nairobi CBD
Comedian and content creator Timothy Kimani, better known as Njugush, has narrated how he encountered robbers in Nairobi CBD on Thursday evening, October 6, 2022.
Njugush shared the horrible experience of being at the mercy of a gang, narrating how they tricked and lured him into the trap.
The incident happened at midnight as he was driving home when he was intercepted by a frail-looking middle-aged woman who pretended to require his immediate assistance.
The woman preyed on the comedian’s empathy, claiming that she had children who had not eaten for days and asked Njugush for some food to take to them.
“She told me she fends for herself, but because of an accident, she was forced to beg. She told me she doesn’t want money but only food,” he narrated.
The woman then asked Njugush to open his car door to confirm that she was indeed injured.
However, in the blink of an eye, immediately after he unlocked the doors, her accomplices entered the car and threatened him with a knife.
Two guys came in from the co-drivers side and pressed a knife on Njugush’s ribs, threatening to stab him.
One of the thugs identified the comedian and instructed him to cooperate, and in return, they would not be hard on him.
They took his phone and started sending money from his mobile money account. As Njugush tried to distract them with a joke, he received a hard slap.
“They laughed as the lady in the backseat was transferring the money. They said that even celebrities were going through tough times, asking me to join their gang to make money” Njugush narrated.
As this was going on the comedian was driving around the city under their command. He tried switching on his hazard lights as a signal for help, but none was forthcoming.
“They told me where to stop and the two guys alighted first. I tried to grab my phone from the lady as she alighted, and it fell on the floor. I knew that was my cue to speed off because the guys had started running back to the vehicle. I fled the scene with the car doors ajar and drove to Central Police Station,” he concluded.
Njugush then asked Kenyan motorists to beware of the tricks used by the gang and avoid opening the door to strangers.

I was frogmarched into university - Lillian Muli on her childhood career dream
Citizen TV's prime-time news anchor Lillian Muli has said that she never wanted to study media, rather, she was forced by her late father to get into journalism.
The TV queen, who has been on screen for close to [twenty- anything above nine is written in numerals, I emphasised this so many times!] years now, said she wanted to follow in the footsteps of her father who was a lawyer saying she liked his professional attire.
"My late dad was an advocate of the High Court and later was in a law firm that he co-owned with his partners and I looked up to this man so much. He was the best-spoken man I had ever met, he was elegant and in those days they used to wear wigs and gowns so I would go to his office and see the wigs and gowns and so I always wanted to do law," Lillian said.
According to Lillian, she participated in school debates to prepare for future law studies but little did she know her father had different plans for her. She says her father advised her that her personality was not fit for her to do law.
"Here I thought I was going to transition into law, and I was absolutely not. You are not doing law because you are not that type of personality, I don't see you being a lawyer and I asked why," Lillian said.
Muli, however, admitted that sometimes parents know what is good for their children to some extent.
"But I think our parents understand us better to some extent so he literally frogmarched me into Daystar, got the admission forms, and the rest is history. I did electronic media communication and minored in marketing and that is how I ended up in media," Lillian added.
