Did you ever have that friend that desperately tried to defend you in a fight but ended up making things worse? Well, Chioma Akpotha is that friend and though it appears that she was sincere in her defence, when a slim person calls you fat, that conversation goes downhill so quickly you don’t have enough time to wrap your “fat” head around it.
So, here’s what happened. The ladies of Omoni Oboli’s latest movie, Wives on Strike are going from city to city promoting the Movie and for every outfit Uche Jumbo wears to an event the trolls come for her on Instagram addressing her new size in not so friendly words.
Chioma obviously got tired of her friend and colleague being the butt of all the negative attention and tried to defend her saying Uche has never been slim (meaning she has always had a weight problem and this extra weight is not a problem for Uche), she was never a Darego (let’s face it, Agbani Darego is a model- tall slim, beautiful and Uche has never been any of those things- tall, slim and beautiful, so let her be) and of course Uche has a mirror in her house (meaning she can see all the damage she has done to herself by eating too much and not exercising so what’s your business?)
Sigh! Whichever way you choose to look at it, maybe Chioma should have just kept it simple. That way, we wouldn’t be reading this much meaning into what she said.
Do you agree? Read what Chioma said below.
