Cosmetic surgery has prevented me from getting movie roles – Ghanaian actress, Nana Frema
Ghanaian actress and singer, Nana Frema has stated that she no longer gets movie roles since she had cosmetic surgery.
The actress went for liposuction surgery after she was constantly body-shamed on social media.
“You know when I went to work on my body, it was because of the name-calling, which at a point got me depressed and I thought going for surgery would work. It did because I’m now comfortable with who I am, I can wear what I want and all that but with my career especially, it has not helped, I am not satisfied.
“I feel it is because I came out to say that indeed I had worked on my body. The movie roles are not coming, the singing gigs are not coming and I sometimes feel I shouldn’t have come out, I think it has really worked against me.
“I thought things would be ok for me but I guess I was wrong, I am not fully satisfied. I needed that self-confidence to show the world what I am made of in terms of talent because before then, I was told, if I were slim, or did not have a big stomach, it would have been easy but it is all false,” Nana Frema told Graphic Showbiz.
Nana Frema also stated that the surgery affects her love life because her boyfriend has been ashamed to go out with her.
She stated that his friends laugh at him by saying he’s dating a lady with a fake body.
“I don’t blame them though because Ghana is not yet there. We have not gotten to that point where we will accept things like this.
“Interestingly, men like ladies with big butts, some even pay for their girlfriends to go and do it, even pastors pay for their wives but I guess they do not like that when it’s in the public like mine,” she said.
