Fari discussed this challenging experience in a recent episode of The Time podcast, hosted by Victoria Gure and Folasade Abimbola.

In her words,

“We just started short films, Afro Tales, whereby in every episode we give people different stories; stories that everybody can relate to.

“Also being a position whereby I lost three women that I knew because of BBL [Brazilian Butt Lift]. And it wasn’t a funny feeling. You know somebody and the next thing you hear is that she had a complication, she couldn’t walk and then she died.

Different cases. So, I had to go into it [BBL] deeper. We had to write a story about that. And we did one episode of Afro Tales that was about BBL.”

Speaking on how she met Don Jazzy, Fari Elysian added;

“Don Jazzy featured in my skit but nobody knows that he responded to me after one year after my video went viral and he saw it. And before we could shoot, it took him another four months before created time for me. But Don Jazzy, baba don try for me.”
