Popular actress and broadcaster, Omotunde Adebowale-David, aka Lolo, got more than she bargained for when she posted a picture on Instagram last weekend. In the said picture, she put on a blue blouse, blue mini skirt and fishnet and added the caption, “Off to my plenty events tonight…”
No sooner had she posted the picture than it attracted several comments. Many of the commenters chastised her for wearing such an outfit, claiming that it wasn’t befitting of her status as a mother. Others also stated that the outfit wasn’t appropriate for her body frame. However, some followers also stood by her and lambasted those who spoke against the picture for body-shaming her.
However, in a chat with INKLING, Lolo maintained that she wasn’t bothered about the comments. Speaking through her manager, Godwin Omadibi, she said, “The truth is that she is not bothered about the comments that trailed the picture. For the people that tried to body-shame her, good luck to them. She just finished shooting her Yoruba movie. And she has also been working on some English movies. There is a lot of work to be done; so, she is not bothered about hateful comments because a lot of people also admired her. She has already shared her thoughts on Instagram and she wouldn’t speak about it again.”
Meanwhile, Lolo wrote on Instagram, “Laugh in the midst of trials because none is built to last. The expiry date is on every drug purchased. An overcomer does not sit with naysayers. Every bit of us is carefully crafted. Big boobs, big stomach, big arms, big bum, big anything you have was upon you on creation, so don’t let anyone who has no say in your creation make you feel less. #notobodyshaming
