The celebrity stylist wrote; “I legitimately died for a whole 10mins. While I was pregnant for (sic) My daughter @kingtinukeleota, I started having serious, Neck/back/leg pains.

“And it got to a time I would get paralyzed on the left side of my body and wouldn’t be able to move at all, I was on painkiller injections all through. Even while shooting, it was hell doing those diaries sessions. I was later diagnosed with a Degenerative spine and a cyst in my Brain.

“Guys I died for a whole 10 minutes before they were able to bring me back, My lungs collapsed. I developed edema and from fixing artificial implants in my spine to be able to walk properly again, went to developed complications that got me on a tracheostomy tube for 3 months.

“I have had 3 surgeries so far and two more to go so I can breathe well by myself and speak well again, So when you hear me speak and make fun of it know I’m a survivor and I went through a lot, I forgive your negative speeches though.

“But it is only a reflection of what you are being sold. To the extent that they will be tweeting Tiannah lies about everything, from pregnancy to having neck pains. Not your fault I blame the twats on that toxic show, pray for Grace that u can be as strong as I am in the face of death.”
