Actress Anita Joseph has advised young women to embrace and be confident in their God-given bodies.
The movie star decried the rate at which ladies go under the knife to ‘enhance’ their bodies especially their butt.
She urged them to rather build their self-esteem and quit seeking validation from people who really don’t care about their well-being.
Anita reacted on Instagram following the death of a Port-Harcourt big girl, Crystabel, who was said to have died following complications from a botched plastic surgery.
Mother hen, as she fondly called, highlighted the cons of plastic surgery, noting a body that has undergone such procedure will always need some touch up every now and then.
She reasoned that acquisition of a big butt doesn’t exclude one from being ditched by a man.
She wrote: “Once you touch your body, na so you go dey touch am dey go cos you must add weight. You will cut and always join. You must go for repairs because, it’s not natural. E be like where dem dey service motor, shalom.
“That’s why you see them top up the bum like engine oil because e dey less na. Sorry, I’m not laughing but some people own be like fufu basin…like basket.
“Even the big nyash still dey chop breakfast. Chai! Uwa ezuoke inukwa m, shalom.
“Be comfortable in your own skin. Build your positive self-esteem. Stop seeking validation from people that don’t really give a f*****k about you. I hope you know they also go for repairs? Oh yessssss!
Anita Joseph added: “Be confident, build your positive self-esteem. Do not allow any anu mpama body shame you. Don’t give them that power.
“Just so you know, big bumbum cannot keep a man kpichicom. Be you, just the way you are. Afterall, ladies with small bum are still winning the last time I checked. Shalom!”
Captioning her post, the actress wrote: “Crystal sudden demise hurts me. These Doctors were Dey not qualified? Oh Lord I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Pls slide and like I said it’s a 50/50 chance if you go come back praise God but you will still go again. That’s why I said don’t do it if you can.”
The news of Crystabel’s death was announced by a tweep, Miss Posha, who identified as the deceased friend.
