Plus size Nollywood actress, Ifeoma Okeke-Ozzoude, has said the death of a plus-size friend forced her into embarking on a weight loss journey.
At that point, something just struck my head that if I am sick now, how would people bring me out of the house.
They said it was a struggle to drag her from upstairs to downstairs. They couldn’t force her inside the car. They had to dump her at the back of a Hilux jeep. I just felt that if she were to be a slim person, she could have had a chance of surviving.
Even after her death, I tried to shake it off, but indirectly people insult obese ones. I just woke up one day and said to myself, it’s time I do something about my size.”
