Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar who has shed a few pounds over the last month, in an interview with Punch‘s Saturday Beats addresses being on a weight loss journey for herself.
Regarding her fans who left negative comments, disapproving of the change, the actress said:
A man can never make me slim down. A woman should lose weight when it is necessary, especially for her health’s sake. I feel it is the business of those that are bashing me because I am trying to be healthy for myself and not for anybody. I do not care what they are saying about (my) losing weight or not.
They do not expect me to be ‘thick’ forever, do they? I recently started this weight loss regimen about a month ago. I reduced what I ate and I was able to achieve this weight loss.
Halima also spoke on her relationship status, saying that there is a man in the picture but that he wasn’t in the movie industry as she can never be with someone in the entertainment industry.
There is someone in my life that I am ‘looking at’ but let’s see how it goes. I don’t know when the wedding bells would ring. The person is not in the movie industry; I cannot date someone in the entertainment industry. We should not be doing the same thing; I have always said this.
