Despite efforts by medical professionals to resuscitate her after she was rushed unconscious to the hospital, she could not be revived,” the statement read.

The cause of her death was not disclosed.

“In accordance with hospital policy, necessary procedures will be conducted to ascertain the cause of death. We kindly request that the privacy of The Black Cinderella’s family be respected during this challenging period.

Disturbing posts on her social media

Recently, Cinderella shared videos discussing past mistreatment by an individual, including experiences of sexual harassment and body-shaming.

In her candid remarks, she expressed strong resentment, stating she would never forgive the person, not even in death.

Additionally, she posted a message hinting at it being her final online communication.

In her message, she also emphasised the importance of kindness towards each other and lamented feeling misunderstood despite her efforts to make a positive impact.

“To any generation that will hear this remember to be kind to others! I really tried to make the world a better place but nobody saw the good of my intentions! My little child and I are going somewhere else to look for peace. To anyone going through anything just know that in the end, you will lose the battle. There is no need to stay… Just go home for only Jesus loves you. And to the rest, my last message on this earth is to remember to always be kind to my dad and siblings, it is my wish that nobody should attend our burial claiming they are my friends or fans.”
