It often comes as a huge shock to many Nigerians when they hear that a Nigerian celebrity went under the knife. American celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj can do it, they have always been wild with their inventions, but a Nigerian? Oh, the boldness, vanity, and fakeness. As Nigerians, we tend to serve our judgment hot to our fellow Nigerians who we feel are straying away from the African path. This is one of the reasons why Nigerian celebrities who undergo plastic surgery either deny it or refuse to air it out.
But not all of them are scared of being crucified on the Nigerian cross. Read on and you will find Nigerian celebrities who have boldly come out to say that they did plastic surgery and also those who allegedly went under the knife.
Tonto Dikeh is one ferocious Nigerian celebrity who is not afraid of speaking her truth regardless of how people will take it. She publicized her intentions to modify her body before she even went on the surgery trip. Unlike many other Nigerian celebrities whose sudden body transformation looked unnatural, Tontolet is very vocal about her artificial hot body.
She even showered praises on her plastic surgeon for giving her a body that “speaks in tongues.” Controversy is one scary stage she never shies away from.
Here’s a video of her surgical procedure
Iyabo Ojo is a familiar face in the Nollywood Yoruba industry. After her trip to Istanbul Turkey, rumors began to fly around that she went to work on her stomach. Although Iyabo Ojo ignored such claims, a close friend of hers who was filled with gratitude to God that she didn’t die revealed that the actress went for a tummy tuck in Turkey.
“Iyabo passed out after the surgery and fell into a coma for five days! It was horrible! Friends and some colleagues in the know started praying for her recovery. But God intervened and she came to. Thank God she didn’t die. It was a tummy tuck,”
said the source.
Like Tonto Dikeh, the bestselling author and fashion diva Toke Makinwa is not secretive about undergoing plastic surgery. Sure, Toke Makinwa would have had a hard time denying that there was nothing artificial about her body because the sudden expansion of her butt was just so obvious and shocking. When pictures of her ‘bigger butt’ sparked surgery rumors, she wasted no time in accepting that she did go under the knife.
And according to Toke, that was the best decision she ever made.
Ini Edo’s hourglass body is to die for. Following rumors that she lifted her butt and got breast implants, the top Nollywood actress had an interview where she shared her opinion about plastic surgery. “plastic surgery is not a crime, do what makes you sleep well at night” she says.
Nigerian socialite, Pretty Mike also listed Ini Edo among Nigerian celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery.
Annie Idibia, the Nollywood actress and wife of popular musician Tu Face, is on Pretty Mike’s list too. But she has not said anything to address that claim.
In a long ‘airing-of-dirty-linen’ post, the mistress of Caroline Danjuma’s husband revealed that the actress, Caroline Danjuma had a surgery among other dirty secrets. And the before and after pictures showing Caroline Danjuma’s amazing transformation seems like enough evidence. The actress has not owned up to having surgery anyway.
Rumors started making rounds that Nollywood actress and producer, Rukky Sanda had a facial surgery after she posted a picture on Twitter looking different. Fans pointed out that her cheekbones were more pronounced, her lips fuller and her nose more pointed. And didn’t keep quiet, she responded with this
