Nigerian singer and songwriter Omawumi took to her Instagram page yesterday to respond to many that have been “fat shaming” her. Here is what she had to say:
This is my b**ch resting face… Which can also mean ‘honestly, I can’t be bothered’. I have come to own and accept the real me, when/if I have to change my body, I may do it. So till then this my response to ‘Omawumi is fat’. So I’ve added a few kilos, Omawumi is beautiful Jare!!! #wonderwoman#omawonder #ownit #timeless
It is interesting to note the shift in African societies where a plump or “fat” woman is now being “fat shamed.” Africa is clearly now adopting western standards of beauty. We are happy to see, however, that Omawumi is confident in herself and refuses to balk to societal pressure.
