Fantana Before and After BBL Surgery
Fantana has openly talked about people resorting to cosmetic surgery if it is the best way for them to look their best. In an interview with blogger Zionfelix, she admitted to having gone under the knife to enhance her appearance.
She also encouraged people to enhance their bodies if they can afford the procedure. The singer, however, left the public in great shock in a subsequent interview when she denied ever achieving her banging body through surgery.
While being interviewed by Abeiku Santana in May 2023, she claimed her body enhancement was a result of natural growth and development. She shared that she always wondered why people would think her body would be the same as it was when she was in her teens.
A look at the singer’s body before and after her BBL procedure shows a great difference, as she is now more curvier and heavily endowed in the right places. Despite denying having a BBL surgery, a lot of people still feel she is not being truthful.
Take a look at some of Fantana’s old pictures before she reportedly had surgery.

Platinumz, a popular Tanzanian singer, confessed that Fantana was a better ‘kisser’, a statement that did not go down well with his then-girlfriend, Tanasha Donna.
Currently, there is nothing serious going on between the musicians. Despite locking lips and the chemistry that briefly existed between them on the show, they never took their friendship to the next level.
