"I recorded through Snapchat when I had a reaction to a certain medication and I had rashes all over my body including my private part. I couldn't have a physical examination with my doctor so I made a screenshot of the part I wanted him to see in the video. I sent it and deleted the video immediately."

Netizens react to Lizzy Jay's video
See some of the comments below:
"No professional Doctor will ever ask you to send such to them or even have that in a conversation with you. That’s why it’s called physical assessment. Even with Telemedicine private areas are excluded."
"So ur doctor can tell what’s going on in ur body through the video without lab tests and diagnosis? Wow wonderful! Better confess!"
"So her Dr is in Snapchat?" Who consults on Snapchat? Naija."
" Make the guy release the video first, for us to see weather na u snap am or not."
Many celebrities use leaked tapes to re-announce themselves
Reacting to the development, Moses, a web designer, said there is more to the growing rate of leaked tapes on social media, especially among celebrities.
He claimed the rise of leaked tapes may be linked to the fact that social media platforms now pay for engagements.
"Over the years, some celebrities are known to go to the extreme in a bid to make a name for themselves. We've seen a case where some celebrities pronounced themselves dead while some went as far as staging their kidnap. Uncensored tape is the new trend. With social media platforms now paying celebrities based on the engagement they get on their social media platforms, it's obvious some celebrities are trying to use uncensored tape to re-announce themselves. Those who don't have one will even come on social media to state they are on the verge of being exposed. Though some are blackmailed, the majority of the so-called celebrities are eager to make a name for themselves with tape. Let social media stop paying and see the decline in the way this will reduce."
