I’m Not A Typical African Woman, Most Men Like Bigg Butts – Tonto Dikeh Defends Cosmetic Surgery In New Interview
Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh was called Queen of fakes when she went under the knife to get a bigger butt.
However, the single mother of one is not afraid to let everyone know that the butt lift surgery has boosted her self confidence.
Here is what she said in an interview with BBC Pidgin.
“The major thing I disliked about my body before was my tummy. It was so big, and I love to put on high waist cloths. So, when I dress up the dress would be folding because of my big tummy. But since I did my butt surgery, my confidence has increased. I no longer put on my clothes at home; even people at home are tired of me. I’m always happy with my new look”.
“Men run after butts too much; once you have a big butt that’s how they would be running after you like something else. Who doesn’t know before that I have a good shape; if I don’t flaunt it now people would still criticize me so why don’t I just flaunt it?”
“Based on African mentality, people still haven’t come to terms with butt surgery. But why would I be ashamed to say I did butt surgery? I have broken away from that stereotyped norm that African women need to be silent about some things about their body.”
