I wish to have big backside –Adekemi Taofeek

For actress Adekemi Taofeek, if given the chance to alter her physique, she would not hesitate to do so and top on her list is to have a bigger bum, probably as big as her senior colleague’s, Biodun Okeowo, popularly known as Omo Butty.

She told Saturday Beats, “I wish I could somehow increase my height; I’ve always wished I was taller than this. I also want a bigger bum. I want something bigger. I have a flat belly, hips and boobs but my bum and height is something I would like to change about myself. I go to the gym and do squats to make my bum bigger but it cannot be as nice as it would have been if I had a natural big bum. It is coming out little by little but I would like my bum to be as big as Biodun Okeowo’s own. That is what I am talking about. My boyfriend loves me the way I am though and he has never complained about my body. I just personally want a bigger backside. When I tell him that anytime I travel out of the country, I would go for a bum surgery, he just asks me why I like to disturb myself because he feels I am perfect the way I am. I would love to be slimmer as well but he does not want that. I would love to be a size eight but my boyfriend said he would love me to be a size 10 or 12.”

At a time when the trend in the industry is to bleach one’s skin especially among actresses, Taofeek, on the other hand believes that being a dark skinned lady has worked to her advantage during the course of her career that has spanned about nine years.

“For me, I think my dark skin has been a blessing and I have got more movie roles through it even though some people say producers prefer fair skinned ladies. Everybody wants to bleach and have light skin but I have never been rejected for a movie role because of the colour of my skin. Most times, they even want a dark skinned person because most of the ladies in the industry are light in complexion. Personally, I think I have an upper hand with my complexion.

“I have never wished to be a fair skinned lady even when I was a kid because I am so lazy when it comes to applying cream on my body. Ironically, my parents are light skinned and I tell them that I am glad I am dark in complexion. When it comes to applying cream on my body, I am not that patient; I just have my bath, probably apply make-up, spray my perfume and I am out of the house. I hardly use body lotion, so if I was created to be a fair skinned person, I wonder how my body would look now,” she said.

Giving a sneak peek into her love life, the actress said that she is blessed to have a man who loves what she does and encourages her even though initially his family members were sceptical.

“I don’t think being an actress has ever affected my relationship. I am currently in a relationship and my boyfriend likes me for who I am despite the fact that his family members believe actresses are promiscuous. He had to tell them that it has to do with the individual and not the industry. I thank God for the kind of man I have and he loves watching my movies,” she said.
