Plus-sized model and actress, Monalisa Stephen has stated that she was offended when sensational singer, Teniola “Teni” Apata, celebrated her weight loss journey on social media.

It would be recalled that Teni recently took Nigerians by surprise after she lost 75 pounds without surgery and shared pictures of her trimmed figure. At the time, she said she decided to lose weight to save her life because her former size was affecting her health.

Reacting to this in a recent episode of the Honest Bunch podcast, Monalisa, a body positivity model, said Teni indirectly set her up for drags with her statement because people started tagging her to the post, and advised her to also drop some weight.

Monalisa said even though she does not mind being called “fat,” she detests it when people say being fat is unhealthy.

She further claimed that Teni put a target on her back just like when actress Eniola Badmus underwent a gastric bypass surgery to lose weight quickly, and she (Monalisa) was also dragged and bodyshamed by trolls.
