This was fueled as a result of her recent visits to Gambia with her best friend and colleague, Mimi Orjiekwe, having developed a picture series with the hashtag #Gambiandiary, alongside the latter.
Lawal refuted this claim in an interview comment published by The Sun News on Saturday, August 20, 2016, stating that her visit to the West African country was for business purposes.
Speaking in a light mood, the actress said, “Please, spare me useless bloggers’ rumours."
"If people could say I have had a butt surgery, they can say anything (Laughs). Na dem sabi. I was in Gambia recently but it was a business trip.”
