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 (click here if you missed it).
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.
