Teni hits back at body ‘shamers’


Nigerian singer Teni says he is fed up with people body-shaming her.

The artiste, who shot to fame with her hit song, Case, has had to deal with questions on her weight since she came into the limelight.

Some of these questions, Teni revealed in her Twitter post,  borders on when or whether she will lose weight.


In her post, she asked her critics to stop worrying about her weight and focus on “your moms jamming thighs.”

“Stop asking me when I’ll lose weight, I don’t know I like fried rice too much. Worry about your moms jamming thighs,” she wrote.

Teni is not the only artiste who seems to be bombarded with questions on weight loss.

Recently Grammy-nominated singer, Lizzo, was in the headlines after a celebrity trainer questioned why people were celebrating the singer’s weight and not her music.


“Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes,” the trainer, Jillian Michaels, said on BuzzFeed News’ “AM to DM”.

However, fans of the artiste criticised the trainer, with many explaining that health is not synonymous to weight.
