Monalisa Stephen, an Nollywood actress and content creator, has lamented the lack of roles for plus-sized women in the entertainment industry.
Goldennewsng reports that the celebrity uncovered this in the most recent episode of the ‘Of Blood, Bones and Water’ web recording facilitated by Heavenly messenger Smith, the previous BBNaija housemate.
According to Monalisa, the majority of plus-size actresses “suffer” in the entertainment industry due to typecasting.
She additionally said she has been “battling for space” in the business with “no assistance” since movie producers generally teach about what size you ought to be.
“In how many Nigerian movies do you see a plus-size girl acting like a lady or a babe? How many? We have not. She stated, “in an industry that already preaches to me that you should be curvy or a size 8 or 10.”
“What are you asking of me? All I can do is fight. In reality, I’m the one battling for my space. I know I’m fortunate that I have no help. I’m like one of thousands of women who want to speak up but are unable to.
I’m trying to do everything because I know it’s okay to fight your way. However, you will suffer if you try to be in the media in Nigeria because you are plus-sized.
