In the midst of Jay Boogie’s health crisis, the transgender individual, who recently sought help for a kidney transplant, faces criticism from the Okon of Lagos. Jay, who transitioned from male to female less than a year ago, is battling acute kidney failure resulting from complications after liposuction.
In a viral video plea for financial support, Jay Boogie detailed the urgency of his medical situation, having depleted his life savings on treatments. Responding to the appeal on a prominent blog’s comment section, the Okon of Lagos questioned the appropriateness of seeking assistance while still presenting as a female. The thespian advised Jay to express remorse, recognizing the emotional and religious sentiments of Nigerians. The Okon of Lagos suggested that seeking forgiveness from God would enhance Jay’s chances of garnering support from the Nigerian community.
