Bose Ogunboye, popular comedienne known as Lepacious Bose, says that she made more money when she was overweight than when she became slim.
NAN reports that she made this known on Saturday at a news conference to mark the 2nd anniversary of EZ Slim, a product by Herbal Pro and the unveiling of an online health and wellness newsletter in Lagos.
“I was obese for 25-years. I was never happy being fat and I had health challenges like my thyroids were aggravating, I was depressed, for two years I was not menstruating. I was so emotional and each time I visited the hospital, they will ask me to go and lose weight.
“Though, I was making a lot of money because it was easy cracking jokes about my being fat. Now that I am slimming down, I do not make so much money anymore.
“Above all, my weight loss has been an incredible journey and I am proud of the progress I have made and I don’t intend to stop.
“I am also proud of the fact that my weight loss is an inspiration to others. I am happier, healthier and more confident thanks to EZ Slim product.
“Presently, I am now a size 16. Two years ago, I was obese with a weight of 198kg.”
