Biodun Oke-Owo

Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo, has addressed the body-shaming comments she received from trolls.

The actress was a recent victim of body-shaming after a troll took to her social media page to say that her arms looked like water yam.

In her response, the actress responded by saying that she loved her arms and that brands pay millions just for her to market their clothes with her body.

Her words ;


“I woke to a comment where a lady body shamed me… that my arms look like Isu Ewura (water yam), Jesus! These arms that brands pay millions to wear their clothes and advertise their business etc.

Ladies let’s stop body shaming. You body shame people with natural body, yet you body shame when they go for surgery. How do we satisfy people?

Answer: just satisfy yourself, live your life, do you, and don’t seek public validation for anything you want.

I’ve been bashed and insulted for flaunting my back, but that doesn’t stop me from doing what I love. Having said this, ladies please don’t let any haters run you down or body shame you with their gutter mouths. Love yourself in your own skin… I have fat arms that bring a fat account balance.”
