Bimbo Akintola Debunks Plastic Surgery Rumours: ‘I Did Not Do Liposuction’

Published

Iconic actress, Bimbo Akintola, was recently spotted at an event looking trimmed down and ravishing. Known to spark off controversy, it was not surprising when many people attributed her new looks to liposuction.

When confronted with the question, the actress explained that her new look was as a result of rigorous hours of exercises. She told Saturday Beats:

“I do a lot of exercise. I did not do liposuction. If you go to Eko Gym, I am usually there by 5:40am and I work out for hours. But anytime I am shooting a movie, I hardly have time to go to the gym.”

The actress who played the part of Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh in the critically acclaimed movie, 93 Days, also said that so far, that role has been the toughest she has embarked on in her career.

“The storyline was great but it was a difficult task because we had to act like some people, some of them are not with us any longer. Also, the fact that they did so much to save us during the Ebola crisis made it a tough job. They did not choose to become heroes but when they realised what was happening, that the Ebola virus was in the country, they did not run away. They stood up to the challenge and became heroes and heroines. We must understand that some of them died for us, so we must respect that and honour them. It was a very challenging role for me. I had to portray Dr. Adadevoh’s courage. I had to show that she was a mother to so many people and she had principles by which she lived.

“I had to show her stubbornness because if she was not stubborn, the story would have been totally different and those are what I tried to channel; show people who she was, her ideals and beliefs. It is my most challenging role. I think it is extremely important that we tell our own stories. Other people cannot tell it like we would do. I am tired of people telling our story for us, so when I was approached with the script, I was very excited. Then it dawned on me after reading the script and realising what she did, I began to shake. I began to have nightmares. She was such an amazing woman,” she said.

Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayode has recounted how her senior colleague and boss, Funke Akindele emptied her bank account to save her mother’s life.

In the wake of claims that Funke Akindele doesn’t treat her staff right, Juliana debunked it as she made it known that Funke is the reason her mother is still alive after battling Fibroid.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, Juliana showered encomium on Funke as she recalled how the movie star emptied her account to make sure her mother was taken to a private hospital and treated immediately. She noted how the movie star does a lot of good for people, yet doesn’t post it for publicity.

Juliana added that Funke has worked hard to be where she is today and God backed her up. Raining prayers for her and her children, she wrote,

“Mamaaaaaaaaaaaaa @funkejenifaakindele
Olufunke Omo Akindele, the one who the Lord delights in.
The apple of God’s eyes, the one who has found favor in the sight of God, the one whom God has clothed with so much grace and glory, the one whom God has enthroned!!!! The one whose path is like a shining light, the one whose light can not be dimmed!

Olufunke Omo Akindele, the one who has gone through fire and came out without smelling like smoke, is a strong woman, a resilient woman, an Amazon, a phenomenal woman, a pacesetter, a record breaker, and a good woman.

My mum would have died of fibroid years ago, had you not emptied your account to make sure that she was taken to a private hospital and treated immediately.

You do a lot of good but you don’t post about it, you don’t do it for publicity, a lot of people are on your payroll, and you have done so much that an Instagram caption would not be enough to talk about it.

You have worked so hard to be where you are and God backed you up. You will never fall and you will never fail, the mighty hand of God will continue to carry you for the rest of your life.
You, your children, and everything that concerns you is covered by God!!!!

I LOVE YOU MAMA”.
