I Can’t Lose Weight For Any Man, I Am Fit The Way I Am – Eniola Badmus

After Eniola posted a picture of herself sometime ago, proudly showing off her bikini bod on her Instagram page, thousands of comments had poured in, most of them yabbing her.
So, in a recent interview when her bikini picture topic was brought up again, Eniola took time to address it.


  • You must have been very courageous to have dared to wear a bikini recently.
I don’t like all these questions that bother on my size. Abi am the biggest person in the world?
Were they expecting me to wear a night wear like am wearing now to the pool?
Na wa for Nigerians sef. I wore what was appropriate and still they are making funny comments. I didn’t even wear a bikini and yet they won’t stop talking.
  • You don’t favour your critics? The moment they try to sound negative you take them to the cleaners. Do you get furious easily?
No I don’t. It’s just that I don’t tolerate intimidation from anyone. In other parts of the world people commit suicide at times because of intimidation. When you allow yourself to be intimidated then depression comes in and when depression comes you want to harm yourself.
So for that reason I don’t allow anybody to intimidate me or intimidate anyone around me. I just don’t like it. I hate negative vibes. If I have a friend and she tries to sound negative I keep a distance.

I want happy people around me.

But to answer your question, in recent times, I have engaged my critics for making my business theirs. I am not the biggest person in the world now or am I? I don’t know why they keep commenting on my size.
We all can’t be slim and I like me just the way I am so they should please leave me the hell alone. I am séxier than some slim people. I mean I’m surprised that people can make it an issue.

  • But in all honesty, is a weight reduction programme an option for you?
No, already I exercise to keep fit and I am fit the way I am.
I have said it before and I will say it again, I am healthier than a lot of slim people. But that is not to say I don’t exercise. I do. In fact, I love swimming.
  • Even, if your man says so?
No I can’t lose weight for any man. Any man who doesn’t like me the way I am can as well keep a distance. Why must I even lose weight for a man? What if I lose weight and I find someone else and he says I want you to add weight for me then I will add weight again for the person. It doesn’t make any sense. Everybody can’t like you so if you don’t like me just stay away.
  • Any plans for a plus-size foundation?
No, but if I must do anything for the plus-size, it has to be clothing the plus-size. I am a very trendy and up to date babe. I have that urge to cloth the plus-size because it’s what I’m good at. If you are a plus-size and you have a problem putting your wardrobe together you can contact me and I will do a good job on that. I know what fits and what’s trendy at the same time.

      When health issues hit u no one will tell you to lose the excesses. There's nothing cool about fat! Its ugly n tiring! I was once big n i really am tiring to curb d nasty habit of eating carbs n sodas. No one says it's easy. But hey! It pays to b healthy. I will never forget d day a friend called me ugly sack of potatoes. I was a size 12 n she an 8 that was d beginning of my transition into slimhood!

      some nigerian journalist are veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy rude and i feel sorry for eniola for even going on with this interview. from the first question she was straight with the fact she didnt want to answer anymore weight questions but this whole interview or virtually the part put in by laila is around her weight. how rude i blame these guys who dont have PR people to set what they wish to be asked or not. you step out of line with the questions and you are shown the door end of interview. who is begging to be interview anyways unless she wants to. thats how its done these days.
      fancy asking her if she has anything in store for the plus size. just disgusting…

      Tosin silver damelokun U know how retarded you sound! Is she d only fat soul on earth? I bet u are obese hence ur ill comment. I'm on the big size myself n that's wat brought about d comment! This is anon 15.06. Why take d comment personal? That's d kinda body u get when u eat a bowl of amala shaki edo cow meat n cow leg n den large size of Pepsi. God for bid in near future ppl with heart conditions or obese related issues will come on media to ask for assistance monetary wise for medical purposes whereas they had the chance to feed healthy. And you sit ur lame ass somewhere to curse out on ppl… u need to b educated.

      Please we can't all be skinny or fat. Some of you talk without sense. Do you know how many men pay for sex with massive ladies? Do you know how many guys fantasize about Eniola and other chicks like her every day? Stop being shallow.
      Not all slim people are healthy. You'll be surprised when she lives longer than most of you.

      If you must criticise her make it constructive not downright abusive and degrading. It's one thing to yab someone's crappy hairstyle it's another to cuss them out for something they have no control of. Some people starve and still pile on the pounds. She's a confident and hardworking lady. I don't care for her weight. If anything it helped her with roles /fame/money.

      I'm telling u my dear. Why must d interview be centred on her weight. Why can't the interviewed be on her career as an actress or something else. Why must be centred on her weight alone…thus is just to make her feel bad!
