CELEBRITY GIST — Curvaceous Nollywood actress Moyo Lawal has finally opened up on her newfound weight and gigantic backside in a recent interview with Nigeria’s INDEPENDENT Newspaper.
Moyo Lawal is an actress many thought would become a big superstar in Nollywood, but she is not active on screen and has even stepped back a little from acting, though she continues to be a popular face in the industry and on social media.
One cannot also miss her most prized assets, which she flaunts as much as she can, especially on her Instagram page.
In this interview with INDEPENDENT Newspaper, Moyo Lawal speaks about her newfound weight, her confidence and of course, her ‘assets’ people can’t stop talking about.
Q: You have added a lot of weight, why is this?
Moyo Lawal: I have just added more weight. It’s fat and nothing else. It is just weight.
Q: What’s the cause of this newfound weight?
Moyo Lawal: It’s age. I am getting older, so basically I am adding weight. Everything is the grace of God. God has a way of making things turn around to work in your own favour.
Q: A lot of actresses are either slimming down or adding weight because that is what their current boyfriend wants, is that the case here?
Moyo Lawal: No. I have always had people come to me for me. People who come to me like the way I am. I have never had to become lighter, darker, skinnier, no. I have never had to do that.
Q: Are you comfortable like this?
Moyo Lawal: At this point of my life, I am so comfortable with myself. I don’t know what anybody can do to me. I am in a very comfortable place; I am comfortable with making mistakes. I am very comfortable with whatever life brings to me right now. So, whatever mistake I make; adding weight or my stomach is bulging, it’s all part of the journey. Tomorrow, my stomach will be flat. Anything can happen tomorrow, but I live for today. Not necessarily that I don’t care, but I am comfortable at the moment.
Q: You have really grown confident, how did you get here?
Moyo Lawal: I grew up in the movie industry. Growing up here, I heard a lot of things like “you are too short. Moyo your eyes are too big. Your bumis too big.” I struggled with a lot of things and I was never really comfortable with who I was. Now, I am getting older and more comfortable in my own skin. When people are talking about me, when they are talking about my body, I tell them it’s nothing. So, I think I have grown into it, I grew into it. The funny thing about it all is that everything they said kind of helped shape me up into who I am today. It also gave me this comfortable aura.
Q: So, it is maturity that has made you confident and not thick skin?
Moyo Lawal: Well, I won’t necessarily say its thick skin. I grew into my own. You know how it is when a child grows in front of a village and everybody is criticising. One day, you will just get tired of everybody criticising you. I am now aware of who I am and I am comfortable with who I am.
What words do you have for Moyo Lawal, her newfound weight and her precious assets?
