Singer Wahu Kagwi has explained why she has added so much weight.The singer recently posted her photos on social media which shocked many Kenyans.Women body shamed her but a number of others, especially men, understood her current situation.
Wahu later responded on Facebook why she has added so much weight, here is her response:
“so yesterday I posted a picture of myself during the 1st joint committee meeting under the Talanta Hela initiative, saying how excited I was about where we’re going….but, what took precedence on that is the amount of weight that I’ve gained
Sure i, have added a lot of weight…22.5kgs to be exact actually, for those who know me, I always add weight when pg. with Tumiso I added 27kgs
but I wanted to draw your attention to..in the 1st couple of minutes of the post.. there were quite a number of distasteful comments. unfortunately, many of these were by women. these were overtaken by overwhelming number of +ve comments, again, majority being by women. a classic case of good outweighs the bad…so much so that majority of the “shamers” ended up pulling down their comments.
clearly, more and more of us are leaning towards positive vibes on social media, and I thank you for this
secondly, to anyone whose ever been body shamed, remember, what the shamers say is not a reflection of you … it’s really a reflection of the quality of person they are. wewe uko tu sawa…so don’t take it their negativity to heart
just for the record, I’m not posting this because I’m upset..ziii….unajua, ukijijua, not many external things can get to you…I’m sharing this for us to take note that there is hope for a more positive living environment and also to encourage anyone who’s been a victim of any kind of hate
otherwise laleni fiti “
