Information YEN.com.gh has gathered from Adina's management indicates that Adina's look was not pregnancy. It is rather a result of a medical condition.
According to our source who wants to be kept anonymous, Adina recently suffered fibroid complications and had to undergo surgery to remove them.
"Adina is not pregnant. She is undergoing a health challenge, that is fibroid. She has even undergone surgery to get it removed. A person in such a situation does not have to be treated in this manner. It is almost like she is being body-shamed and it is not fair at all," our source said.
Video of Adina's surgery
A video shared on Adina's YouTube page shows her explaining her journey through the surgical procedure.
Adina explained that she suspects that her fibroid came up around 2014 but she did not take note of the little changes in her body.
She explained that there is a history of fibroid in her family. Her mother and sister have all had a fibroid removed before.
Even though Adina looked very slender at the time, one of the doctors at the Tema Women's Hospital, Dr Yaa Owusu-Baah, revealed that the singer's fibroid was like a 32-week pregnancy.
The surgery was successful after about four hours of work which according to the lead surgeon, Dr Jacob Amoatwo, saw them remove 16 different fibroids.
