According to Chikwendu, this has become a major source of worry for those around her.

The ex-wife of a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, disclosed this in a series of posts on her social media page.

In the posts, Chikwendu said “my tea was poisoned by a jealous friend, who later confessed, while in school”.

She wrote: “Having to deal with sensitive skin has been one disadvantage of being Snowhite. Aside from a strange allergy that had arisen from a change in weather, water environment, I noticed a strange allergy that had common symptoms with psoriasis or endemic eczema in January this year. It appeared like rashes and latter metamorphoses into huge boils spreading to other parts in a blink.

“Herbs and medications from all corners of the world have been used; while it helped at some point, the strange ailment has continued to spread across to other parts.

“This became a source of worry as my glasses skin was under attack.”

The ex-beauty queen also allayed fears of any danger as she stated that she has done well to contain it through drinking lots of water and watching what she eats.

“This is not psoriasis as I had several biopsies done in years. They’ve called it 4 different names with no cure but everyone says one thing in common — it is an allergy and it could’ve been triggered by some antibiotics, water, weather and environment. I drink lots of water and take vitamins to boost my immune system.”
