The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) reality TV star Jojo Robinson recently revealed that she had to be rushed to the hospital due to complications with her kidney.


In an Instagram post at the weekend, the mother-of-one (who is married to wealthy businessman, Calven Robinson) shared images of her friends by her bedside. Jojo was visited by her RHOD co-star Nonku Williams as well as Ruan Scheepers, who is also on the show.

“When you’re perfectly healthy and the next minute you find out your kidney was near failure,” she said.

“Long story short, Rushed to the emergency room at 1am with excruciating pain, found out I had a 1.6cm kidney stone blocking my urethra, which ultimately had led to a back log in my kidney where it had all turned to puss in the left kidney. My doctor removed the large stone and placed a stent in the kidney to help save it. I was told my kidney was a week or two away from failure if this didn’t happen. In two weeks I have to have another surgery to remove the stent and other stones still in my kidney.”


Jojo is no stranger to surgeries or procedures as she recently revealed she went under the knife again.

In February this year, she shared that she had brachioplasty surgery to remove excess skin on her arms. The procedure was done by the same doctor who performed her tummy tuck surgery two years ago.

Shares a GRAPHIC VIDEO of the procedure, Jojo said: “I’m very sore today, but it’s manageable. It’s safe to say I won’t be doing much this week. I have to wear compression garments for up to three weeks, but surprisingly, it’s not that uncomfortable.

“The surgery was a day procedure, and I was able to leave the same day. Though the ride home was hella uncomfortable, not gonna lie. I’m home safe and just laying in bed all week. Sorry, not sorry. I’ll update you in my stories as the week goes on … we should hopefully change the dressing on Friday. Also, my boo bear, I love you so much. Thank you for taking such good care of me.”


Jojo has been candid about cosmetic surgery journey, revealing last year in an interview with Carol Ofori, on East Coast Radio, that she has undergone “maybe 20 plus” surgeries altogether.

“I don’t think I can count, like I would have to literally have to sit and count them out. But all together maybe 20+. Major surgeries maybe six or seven. So, my first surgery was a plain breast augmentation… where they just cut under the boob, they didn’t do the lift, they just put the boobs in,” Jojo said.

“Jojo will pay for her sins,” said one X user.
