The news, initially circulated by blogger Cutie Julls, claimed that the wife of the king was struggling for her life abroad after undergoing a BBL surgery that did not go as planned.
The blog mentioned that “One of the very famous Kabiyesi’s Olori” was in critical condition in an undisclosed location.
It was speculated that the reference was to Olori Sekinat, as she is well-known. Cutie Julls added that inside sources from the palace confirmed the situation and requested prayers for the royal family during this challenging time.
