WHILE most women would do anything to get a slim frame, for Nollywood actress Bola Yusuf , her plus size remained her greatest asset, given her pominent roles in Nigerian movies and soap operas. Starring as model in Dr. Ojieh’s Lilli capsule TV advert, Yusuf brought home comic relief that has attributed to the drug’s acceptability. It has also given her a household nick-name, fatty bom bom. Her size earned her a place in Sunny Nneji’s hit musical video — Tolotolo and made the video a pleasant piece to watch. Though her size gave her fame, Bola who now weighs 90 as against 125 pounds, saw the need to lose weight grudgingly though, when Dr. Ojieh came into her life. “At first I declined because I was enjoying my comic roles in movies, but then I thought looking big was not really healthy. And I realised that to be versatile in the movie industry I have to trim down a little. So I concentrated on slimming down, with Dr. Ojieh’s drug.”

What has acting done for you?
It takes you to places, it helps one in life and actually open doors. The negative side is that, you are denied your privacy and you can’t do things other people do and get away with it. But all that not withstanding it’s fun and Nollywood is getting there. And I am still working on my size it is a gradual process.

What special thing do you do to your skin?
I don’t bath with bar soap, I use shower gel and bath foam and a special facial foam. I don’t cleanse or moisturize. I tried it once but didn’t like the result.

How often do you do your nails?
Every two weeks. But sometimes when I am on set, any nails or nail polish would change depending on the role I am playing

I could not find any pic of hers! But if you watch the video Tolotolo by Sunny Nneji you will know who the person is. She was the one dancing into the cam with her backyard. :)

Joi my sister you just took the words off my mouth :roll :roll .

Abeg, what was that all about? Are Nigerian journalists running out of questions to ask these days or what? We need a "Barbara Walters" and an "Oprah Winfrey" in Nigeria I tell you! Anyone looking for a job?

huh:shockif it's the woman in that video that is calling herself "big but shapely", then it's really obvious that she doesn't know the meaning of the word "shapely"
