In a bold and candid move, dancehall artiste and social media personality Queenie took to her online platforms to showcase a face injury she sustained and to send a powerful message to her detractors.
In a video shared on her social media page, Queenie provided an intimate glimpse into her struggle, shedding light on her resilience in the face of adversity.
According to Queenie, on August 19, 2023, she experienced a face injury that led to the development of a cyst. She revealed that this injury required her to seek medical attention, which led to her admittance to The University Hospital of the West Indies on Sunday, August 27. Throughout this challenging period, Queenie stated that she exhibited composure.
During the video, “Lady Gangsta” removed her bandage to reveal her injury, bravely showing her followers the extent of her condition.
With remarkable candour, she explained that a hole was in her face for the draining of the cyst. She acknowledged that discussing her injury and the subsequent medical procedure might’ve caused her to express her emotions by screaming and shouting but urged her audience not to take offence at her reactions.
