Toolz: It’s Fine to Be Curvy, But It’s Also Important to Be Healthy


Media personality Toolz gets intimate and candid in an interview with Blanck magazine for their ‘Homeland’ issue that also features Tiwa Savage, Banky W & Zainab Balogun

The OAP talks to the magazine about building her self-esteem, wedding bells and some low down details.

Read excerpts from her interview below!

On her confidence level: Pretty high now, but I’m only human, so it does change. My confidence level is often intertwined with how successful I am at work, and how well my personal life is going. If I’m working hard, seeing results and happy with my personal life, my confidence is sky high; but when things don’t work as smoothly as I wish they would it dampens my confidence but then I know it’s something that happens to everyone really.

On wedding bells: I always say God’s timing is the best and marriage isn’t something I take lightly. I think a lot of people nowadays get married for the wrong reasons, which is probably why the divorce rate is so high now. Having said that, I do want to settle down soon, but I don’t know if I’ll make a huge announcement when I decide to get married.

On being a curvy celebrity: Being curvy or ‘well endowed’ if you please, became synonymous with my name and eventually became my ‘signature’ even though I wasn’t looking for that. On the flip side you don’t see a lot of curvier, bigger ladies in the limelight so it is unusual and difficult for some people to accept it. Nevertheless I do hope I can encourage more young girls that are curvy to love themselves and love their bodies. It’s fine to be curvy, but it’s also important to be healthy, which is why I am working on my fitness now.
