There have been lots of speculations about different women in the Nigerian entertainment industry getting cosmetic surgery. A lot of the women have denied those speculations, while a few have chosen not to talk about it.
Women like Toke Makinwa, Tonto Dikeh and Mercy Eke are proof that there is nothing to be ashamed of.
Toke Makinwa: Although initially shy about her surgery, Toke Makinwa tweeted about going under the knife last year. On December 27, 2018 she took to Twitter to talk about how she had fixed her body because she hated it. She said that it was the best decision ever. She had initially claimed that she was going to remove fibroids. Her fans noticed that she had gotten curvier after the surgery and called her out on it before she finally agreed that she had gotten some work done.
Tonto Dikeh: Tonto has been the most open about her surgeries. She told BBC Pidgin that she didn’t want to hide it just because people already knew she wasn’t curvy before the surgery. Tonto got her first surgery in 2017 to enlarge her butt. She then hinted on her Instagram page that she was going to get ‘new boobs’ earlier this year as a birthday gift for herself. She also said that since she did her surgeries, she has felt more confident about her body.
Mercy Eke: The winner of the just concluded Big Brother Naija Season 4, Lamborghini Mercy got her nickname ‘Lambo’ because of her butt. When she first got into the BBNaija house, she claimed that she had never gotten any work done. But housemates did not believe her and kept pushing to find out the truth. Finally, she opened up about having done butt enlargement surgery.
The Nigerian society shies away from topics like ‘body enhancement’ surgery. This is why a lot of women who have had similar procedures lie about it and hide the truth. They’ve been made to feel like they will be judged for choosing to fix something about themselves that they did not like. If you don’t like something and you have the resources to fix it, then go ahead and do so.
Before you do though, make sure you have great surgeons and pay attention to all the side effects so that you don’t end up botched. Research is important before going to alter your body permanently. But if you do get cosmetic surgery, own it, be proud about and flaunt the gorgeous body that you now have.
