Kisa Gbekle: I don’t care what people think
ACTRESS Kisa Gbekle has asked those criticising her for undergoing surgery to enhance her body to stop wasting their time because she is unfazed by their comments. Infact, she doesn’t care what they think.
Late last year, Kisa shared updates of her surgery in a hospital in Turkey on her social media pages and it was obvious she was undergoing a tummy tuck — a surgical procedure to make the abdomen thinner and firmer.
The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen.
Her revelation did not go down well with some of her fans and industry players, with some of them expressing their disappointment since they believed she already had a naturally ‘banging body’, a slang for a very nice body.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Kisa said: “I do what makes me happy. I have heard and read all that people are saying but all I know is that I do what makes me happy.
"As long as my mom, who is the most important person in my life, is okay with it, then I am good to go. I don’t care about anyone who is not happy for me because I did something that will make me happy,” she stated.
Telling this reporter what warranted her decision to go in for tummy tuck, she answered: “Everyone knows Kisa has got a ‘banging body.’ But during the height of COVID-19, I could not keep up anymore.

"My tummy became too big and it was very frustrating. Everyone knows I love to workout but this time, I didn’t have the energy to do so.
“My tummy became so big to the extent that I couldn’t see my private part anymore. To do so, I had to lift my tummy and it was embarrassing so I felt the surgery was the right thing to do.
"I discussed it with my mom and she was fine with it. Initially, she was not but when I answered her questions on all the myths surrounding this tummy tuck she gave her consent.”
Sharing her experience on the procedure which she had in Turkey, Kisa said it was painful. “It wasn’t easy at all. I even thought I was going to die. I did a documentary on it, which is on my YouTube channel.
"I did a tummy tuck, not the normal liposuction or Brazilian Butt Lift(BBL). Truth is, a tummy tuck is very painful; no jokes, but if you do it at the right place with the right people who have the right expertise, you will have no issues.”
Kisa who has returned to Ghana said she was doing well. “I am really okay. I didn’t do this in a rush. I took my time and made sure I was ready for it, both mentally and physically. Thankfully, the people who worked on me were excellent so I am fine. My body is back."
On what she is up to after her tummy tuck, Kisa said: “Currently, I have just been eating and sleeping and planning for this year because I’m coming back to do a whole lot.
"My football academy has been on hold too because I’m working on getting teams for my boys. However, my team and I are grooming new players and next year, we will release them to teams.
"On the movie front, I have a lot I’m working on. This year, we are not slacking", she added.
