Prominent Nigerian singer and songwriter, Teni, has refuted claims of undergoing liposuction surgery for weight loss.

She continued “If I did surgery my stomach would be flat. I wish but I was scared. Surgery is not easy. It’s life-threatening. It’s not easy to go under the knife. I was on a strict diet. Ask my managers. No carbs. I was on a strict diet for two months.”

She highlighted the challenges of maintaining discipline during the process, noting that it also taught her the importance of mental discipline.

Despite the difficulties, Teni emphasised the significance of discipline in flexing physical muscles and the mind. She narrated the sacrifices made, including abstaining from shared meals during social outings.

Teni revealed that her decision to lose weight stemmed from surviving two bouts of life-threatening COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021. After the second episode of the virus in January 2022, she resolved to embark on a weight loss journey, viewing it as a necessary step in prioritizing her health and well-being.
