April 9, 2016 – Nigerian Actress Bimbo Thomas: My Father & Mother Are Big, My Plus Size Is Genetic

Yoruba Actress Bimbo Thomas: Why I Call My Best Friend Eniola Badmus First Thing Every Morning

In this recent chat with The Entertainer, Nollywood actress Bimbo Thomas talks about her life as a plus size actress and how she inherited it from her parents. The beautiful actress also talks about her dawn till dusk programme.

Hear her:

Early in the morning, I go on Instagram, look at my call log. I have a friend that I call that makes me laugh and who is that person Eniola Badmus. I call her in the morning when I wake up and she goes like ‘Omo Iya Kilo nsele?’Iyalaya Bimbo!

Around 11am, I will have a light breakfast.

When I’m working, I don’t get tired easily. I’m very strong. When my colleagues are getting tired on location, that’s when my strength doubles. The only time I get tired is when I’m sick.”

As a plus size actress, you’re tempted to think the weight should slow her down a bit and that she piles up the calorie from reckless diet.

But Bimbo says her size is genetic: “My mum and dad are big.” 

“In those days of training in Odunfa I’d not come to really convince them that I could do it because I’m a very shy person. I can be very shy that’s one thing people don’t know about me.

They will tell me that I can’t be Fathia Balogun’s daughter, or that I could not play the role of a mother then.

They will tell me I’m too big, but I think it’s my Yoruba that messed me up those days. So I started learning, I started watching more of Yoruba films.

    Natural fat is healthy, even if she wants to shed it, it won’t go anywhere. But Bimbo do exercise every morning to keep you strong and light.
