Popular transgender figure, Daniel Anthony Nsikan, renowned as Jay Boogie, has revealed that he wished for death following severe complications stemming from a botched cosmetic surgery.
He revealed that his health deteriorated to the extent that he required daily dialysis to facilitate urination due to complications from the surgery.
Speaking during a recent conversation with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Jay Boogie disclosed that he also received death threats on social media after some of his friends published his photographs while he was on the hospital bed.
He claimed that his friends falsely claimed that he needed public assistance for a kidney transplant with the photographs.
Boogie lamented the invasion of privacy by supposed friends who shared his images online, leading to him being object of relentless cyberbullying.
He said he had to withdraw from media exposure temporarily due to the overwhelming negativity and threats he was receiving.
People that I thought were my friends came into the hospital and took pictures of me and sent to the bloggers. It was becoming so annoying that the bullying online was even too much. I was receiving death threats. People will come to my DM and be like, ‘You never still die?’ So, I decided to stay off the media for a while.
I wasn’t the one that sent out my pictures on social media. It was my friends. I’m a discreet person. I don’t like flaunting things. I love living a low-key life. Because nobody cares about you. You should care about yourself”.
Emphasizing his preference for a private life, he highlighted the indifference of others towards his well-being, criticizing the insensitivity of those mocking his situation.
He said he had to endure the ordeal of undergoing daily dialysis to regulate his swollen legs and excessive urine levels, meticulously monitoring water intake and the pain of blood extractions during the sessions.
He reflected on the hurtful comments and questioned the mental health of those ridiculing his personal choices, expressing his weariness and contemplation of the purpose behind undergoing the surgery that led to such distress.
“So, I mean, with the dramas going online, people bullying me saying, ‘How man go go do nyansh.’ Can you even imagine the mentality? Do you even see me as a man? This is something I want for myself. And I’m sure that if I were to be any of their siblings they won’t tell me that they won’t feel the pains I’m going through. I started going to dialysis every day just so I can pass out urine. My legs were swollen. The urine was very high. At that point, I was measuring my intake of water. Before I go for dialysis they will check my weight and I will be weighing 100 and something. Every day, I would be going for dialysis, they will be taking out my blood and all that. It was hurting that I sat down and said, ‘God abeg, I am just tired. I just want to go [die]. What am I even doing? Who send me to come do this nyansh sef?”
