Jay Boogie has reacted after he was accused of lying to Nigerians about a non-existing medical condition to obtain funds.
Recall that Jay Boogie accused a Nigerian doctor of performing a botched surgery on him in Lekki, Lagos State.
Later, videos of him crying for help while revealing he has kidney issues emerged. He also said that he is “dying”.
In a post, a medical doctor gave an update, saying that Jay has not passed out urine in 24 hours.
The medical doctor also said that Jay Boogie’s two kidneys have failed and he would be needing a kidney transplant .
However, after weeks of seeking funds from Nigerians, one of those who opened a GoFundMe account to source funds for Jay’s treatment came out to state that the donations will be returned because Jay is not being forthcoming with information about his diagnosis. She added that they have asked Jay to provide a hospital report but he has been acting shady. She then stated that the money donated will be returned to the public.
Jay has now reacted. He said that he never told Nigerians that he needed a kidney transplant but he said he had other health issues and needed money for treatment.
He wrote: “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.”
He added that he was discharged from the hospital on November 28 and he is now getting better. He said he also feels better and no longer needs dialysis.
